I just wanted to take a minute and thank all the Service Men and Women (Past and Present) for their service to our country. Memeorial Day brings their efforts to the forefront but we need to remember that they continue protecting us and our freedom 24/7/365, not just on the holidays.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU! God has certainly blessed us with you!

Thanks from a Vet!

And my thanks go out to all those who served before me, with me, and are still serving today.

I got to spend the afternoon flying with an Active duty Air Force MSgt and an Active Duty Navy Senior Chief! Now tell me how could I have spent Memorial Day any better!:D

funny... The wife says the same thing to me:eek:

All it needs is the tail aligned better. Pointed that out to him and he saw it right away. It's kind of cocked to the left a little. Just enough to keep it in a constant right turn:eek: and that's with full left trim. Anyway he'll get it right. and yeah he has a bunch of stuff already. He should be good for a while

Memorial Day

A day to remember and thank all of those who have made it possible for us to live in a Free Society.

Especially remembered are those who have given their all so that we could enjoy it all.

May all our Heroes Rest In Peace.

I hope no one minds but I'll take this opportunity to remember a good friend of mine who lost his life in the first gulf war.

SSgt John Blessinger lost his life in a AC-130 gunship that was shot down over the gulf in the first days of the air war.

A life, like many others, that was cut way to short defending our liberties and freedom!

May they Rest in Peace, all those fine men and women.

Amen. God Bless America, and her uniformed men and women. And also those who support them. Finally, Thank You SSgt John Blessinger. Your ultimate sacrifice is part of the fabric, that covers us in freedom. It is you, and those that paved the path of freedom before you, that has made this country great. And if I happen to make it to where you are, stop me and introduce yourself, because I'll never tire of meeting heroes.

Not much I could say, that y'all haven't said! Thanks & you're welcome, and I'd be proud to do it all again, 'cept I'd try to be an even better soldier, this time, like you guys were & are!
(Well, what the heck, I did help get us Dock Crew of the month, once)!
