Default SALUTE to all Veterans!

Thanks to all who have served. May God Bless You All.

And to all my brothers who never made it back from that hell hole we called 'Nam'

We attended the remembrance day ceremony today. Our oldest son Evan was marching in it with his scouts troop.

My yearly post:


IT IS THE SOLDIER*

It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.


It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.


It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.


It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.


It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.


It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.


It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.



*This is often attributed to Father D. E. O'Brien, USMC, but Mr. Charles Province is the actual
author. The mix-up seems to have come when Father O'Brien submitted this to Dear Abby and
it was incorrectly attributed to him.

Happy Veterans Day to all my comrades, active, reserve, retired ... and especially to those who
have crossed
the bar. You are not forgotten.

The Gun Navy and Bird Farms got all the good times, while those of us stuck in the Gator Navy got to get up close and
personal with the Cong and NVA during boat ops; I was a coxswain on USS Durham. Fun times, and you couldn't pay
me enough to do it again!
