Happy Veterans Day


    12/68-12/69 Vietnam


To my fellow Vets ... Thanks Guys and Gals!

To you we left at home, Bless you for all of your support. 
It was so needed and appreciated.

I would also like to add from the bottom of my heart:

Fuck You Jane Fonda and John Kerry!

I always think of you with great affection and gratitude on this day.

It is fitting that on this Veterans Day we remember the words of President Ronald Reagan at the Vietnam Veterans Wall on November 11, 1988:

“Our young friends—yes, young friends, for in our hearts you will always be young, full of the love that is youth, love of life, love of joy, love of country—you fought for your country and for its safety and for the freedom of others with strength and courage. We love you for it. We honor you. And we have faith that, as He does all His sacred children, the Lord will bless you and keep you, the Lord will make His face to shine upon you and give you peace, now and forever more.''

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Joeh, most hated among Vietnam Vets.

Sandee, from the bottom of my heart.

Adrienne said...

Thank you for your service, Odie.

trailbee said...

Thank you, Odie!

edutcher said...

Wow, I'll bet Mrs Odie would love that young stud back.

May you have many more, sir.

The vehicle behind that ugly grunt in the photo reminds me of the days I was given a duece and a half to haul my squad around in. For every hour of driving it, there was about 8 hours of PMCS (Preventative Maintenance Checks and Services), washing, painting, etc. We spent more time in the motor pool by far than actually using the vehicle. My particular duece and a half was a Studebaker made in the 1950's, a real piece o' shit. I began to hate those God awful trucks, but after a few decades have passed, I now kinda miss 'em.

Ron Russell said...

Ditto on Fonda and Kerry!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Adrienne, thank you for keeping that light burning. It meant so much.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Trailbee, you're why we went my lady.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

edutcher, she would indeed, but then so would I.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Fredd, I absolutely loved that truck. That old girl got me out of more tight squeezes than I can remember. As the company scrounger, among my other duties, I put 20,000 miles on that sweetheart, and she never skipped a beat.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, FUCK THEM!

Brighid said...

Thank you, Odie! It doesn't seem enough but it is heartfelt.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Brighid, it's much more than you'll ever know. Thank you sweet lady.

Rick Street said...

Thank-you for your service. Hand Salute

Allen said...

and 100% on fuck kerry. he did more shit to make vets look bad than anyone out there. he is the undisputed heavyweight King of the Blue Falcons.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Rick, right back at you!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Allen, I had to look up Blue Falcon. Yes indeed, he's a real buddy fucker.
