    IMHO this needs seen .

    I just ran across this the other day , and thought it worthwhile to see and remember our forgotten vets . Before You Go

    A tissue or a quick drink wouldnt be a bad idea to have ready .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

    RR,
    Thanks for the post. It is hard at times to think that there are fewer and fewer of that generation left with us now. My dad is part of that generation. Served in the pacific theater in the army. Like so many others of his generation he rarely speaks of the war. I like to think I helped carry on his legacy, I served 24 years in the Air Force, during Viet Nam, Panama, Granada and Desert Storm. Yet I realize I did not make near the sacrafices he and his brothers in arms did.

    Thanks for the link Redneck Repairs - it is always good to remember those on the front lines, and those who have been. Both my grandfathers were in the Navy in WWII - now I'm in a Department of it!

    Dittos for me too. My father is soon to be 86 and served in Europe in WWII in the 78th Lightning Division. Battle of the Bulge, Bridge at Remagen (sp) the Hurtgen Forest and was 5 miles from Malmandy when the SS murdered many American prisoners. He also served the Air Force reserves for 30 years and civil service at the Air Force Academy for 28 years. I count myself very lucky to have him living 6 miles from me. I spent too many years while active duty myself away where I couldn't spend time with my mother and him. Like you I also served those years in the Air Force, during Viet Nam, Panama, Granada and Desert Storm. I also realize I did not make near the sacrifices he and his brothers in arms did. Only lately has Dad opened up on some stories about the war and only when he and I are alone.

    Hey Bob - great to have you back again and active

    My dear Pops .. now over 10 years gone, was a Lt tank commander in the Brit Army - the only reason he survived I think was because he missed El Alamein due to being wounded. He lost his closest and best friend (Spit' fighter pilot) during the Battle of Britain, and many other good buddies too.

    The debt we owe is incalculable. I just wish modern youth had even half a clue what they owe all the old folks in this category.
