    Thank You All Who Have Served(Happy Veterans Day)

    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.

    A pic from an awards ceremony near the end of my time on active duty. I'm on the far right. I can't believe I was ever that young.

    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    In the words of my favorite Lt. (Travis Manion)- "If not me, then who?"

    As with too many good Marines, he was KIA 29 April 2007, in Fallujah, Iraq. Godspeed, "Maneater"!

    Thank you Sir!
    I wasn't drafted. I dropped out of high school and volunteered for Airborne Infantry.
    Pay then was $288.00 per month.
    It wasn't about the money.

    "Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me." Isaiah 6:8

    As Theodore Roosevelt said in his infamous speech, "Citizenship in a Republic" April 1910,...

    "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

    As old age continually pushes its way into my remaining years, I appreciate more and more the untold sacrifices made by countless, unnamed men and their families throughout the ages for our country.

    Thanks to all veterans for the virtually thankless servitude and self-sacrifice!
    "All gave some, some gave all", and as my signature says, "...who laid down their lives so that lesser men could be free to cry 'PEACE', when there was none."

    "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence in their behalf." George Orwell

    Happy Veteran's Day Brothers!
