    8th of Nov Drinks to our Airborne!!

    Lets not forget one of the bloodiest battles in Airborne history tomorrow and drink to our brothers who didnt make it home then and now!!
    on Hill 65 in War Zone D on Nov. 8, 1965. Forty-eight comrades in the Army’s 173rd Airborne were killed and hundreds wounded in a battle that found them outnumbered 30 to 1.
    God only knows ...
    Operation Hump.

    Will do. I remember looking at the display of the 173 in the batt. office years ago. It has left a lasting impression on me.


    I hear the choppers hovering...

    I love the Toby Keith song "The 8th of November"!
    And it's my birthday.

    I'll lift a glass in toast!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I believe it is Montgomery Gentry. God Bless the paratroopers.

    I'll lift a glass to the boys and a special one to Lawrence Joel who saved so many lives that day while being wounded more than once himself.
    I'm clinging to my guns and religion.

    It's Big & Rich's song. Proabably the greatest song written since Johnny Horton died.

    Here's a link to the video.
