   I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all our veterans on this day. All the men and women who have served and sacrificed, and to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.     THANK YOU....!

   If you know a veteran, take a few moments to thank them today. Without their contributions you might not be free today. Freedom is by no means free. It also has a flavor the protected will never know.

      MADDOG10,

      Airborne! and De Oppresso Liber! 82nd and 101st here, 1966-1977. RVN 1967-'68.

      Before the big levy in late 1967 that sent everone with wings to the 101st, we worked with SF at Ft. Bragg on Cherokee Trails, and learned a lot!!!

      Went to demo. school in Vilsek, Germany. P for Plenty!

      Jesus had a 12-man A-team!

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          One of the better schools for demo was in vilsek. Glad to know a fellow chute from the 82nd.

                      I Agree!  Special thanks to my Dad who flew the Hump with the Army Air Corps during WWII, my brother - helicopter pilot in Vietnam, and my son - currently a Chief in the Reactor Maintenance Department on an aircraft carrier. 

                      To All who serve and have served - Thank you all for your service. I am proud of all of you

                              THANK  YOU   rdgrnr

                               

                              Same  here 

                               

                              I researched  his  company on the internet ( after he had  passed )  Kinda  felt guilty about doing it.....but I had always wondered about it all

                              He would not have even wanted me to mention what I did in the  above  post.....its just the way he was

                              He kept his  metals  all hidden way back in a drawer in the back bedroom.....I would sneak in there now and then and look at them when I was growing up

                              Amazing how much in  detail that  they go into on the internet about those battles they were in

                               

                              God  Bless  You   rdgrnr...........and God Bless Your Brave  Dad  also
