Remembering . . . . .

 This was my war, so I dedicate this post to those
on this wall. My best friend Bill was one of those.
It's been a tradition to mention him here each
Memorial Day. My first post about Bill is HERE.
 Too many names .....
God bless all of those that have fallen.
Thank You for my Freedom!

Thank You Bill !

God bless you and your fellow warriors Odie...

Ron Russell said...

It is a time to pause and reflect on those fallen Americans, without who, we would not have the freedoms we enjoy. May God grant them eternal peace.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Supi, thank you and this day is about all of the fallen Bills.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Admiral, thank you Sir.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, I felt the title said it best.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Randy, So many gave that ultimate price.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, AMEN!

Marine4Ever said...

Rest in peace. Your war is over. Thank you.

Adrienne said...

Odie - as I said in my post, I remember returning Vietnam vets who were spit on. It was and is one of my most horrifying memories.

Thank you for your service to our country and to us.

And God bless Bill...

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Marine, Amen.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Adrienne, The fallen thank you.

Those who spat and Jane Fonda will always have a place in my toilet bowl.

edutcher said...

Thanks, more than we can say.

Lost a couple of friends in that one.

And the ones that spat then are still spitting. That's how Little Zero gets away with "corpseman".

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Edutcher, great point ... "corpseman".

Opus #6 said...

Odie, thank you for your service. And prayers for Bill and his family and all of our fallen heroes.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Opie, thank you and glad to serve.

Marine4Ever said...

@ edutcher --
DITTO what Odie said: GREAT POINT!

Marine4Ever said...

And Odie --
DITTO on Jane Fonda and the toilet bowl... DON'T FORGET TO FLUSH!

LL said...

It's not about being brave. It's about being willing to step up.

Today, it's very easy not to step up. Look at the last three presidents...

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

LL, in my day you stepped up or went to jail, but I was still proud to serve.

Always On Watch said...

Odie,
Thank you for your service.

And condolences, all these many years later, on the death of your friend Bill. Losing a best friend to war is a kind of sadness that never goes away.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

AOW, thank you for your thoughtfulness.

cube said...

I find it hard to get on the computer during the weekends, but I hope I'm not too late to thank you for your service to our country.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Cube, it's never too late unless your name is Jane Fonda. Thank you very much.
