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 !

  7. 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.

  12. 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...

  13. Adrienne, The fallen thank you.

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

  14. 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".

  19. 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...

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

  21. 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.
