God bless all who died for our country. If you have a family photo, please post it here. Both my brother-in-laws are buried at Arlington. One was killed in Viet Nam and the other died of cancer about a year after he retired from the Army.

My cousin David KIA, never forgotten; guess I can't post pictures yet.

I have been blessed to visit many memorial sites. Always gives me pause and a sense of history.
Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona; Washington DC with the Vietnam, Korean, WW2 Veterans Memorials; Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier; and The Alamo

Well dip me in wax and call me Crayola, thanks good sir. I just wanted to say that all those who gave their all are never forgotten by this Marine. My cousin and I were like brothers and very competitive, he was a great man and is well remembered. I miss him every day. Semper Fidelis, Honoris Obsequium. The honored dead live in our memories.

You might have to use the "go advanced" feature.

That is probably the most poignant painting of the Viet Nam era ever done. I've seen it many times before and it never fails to "get" me.

A couple of my dad and crew. The downed plane is a B-17G in what is now Yugoslavia. The hole is from an 88mm AA shell that didn't explode. The fuses were set for various heights. The Nazis misjudged the altitude - thankfully.

Their last reunion together.

And a probably forgotten guy. No relation to him.

In memory of my father, who managed to find humor, and bring smiles to people's faces, even in camp in World War II

He was injured in Europe, but returned home to finish raising his two kids and to continue to entertain people, even when he had to move into assisted living the last few years of his life.
