Point du Hoc above the Normandy Beaches,
It may not need to be said, but too many seem not to understand, Veteran's Day honors all those who have served. Memorial Day honors those who have served and not returned and the families they left behind.
The 8th Air Force over Europe
We honor the men and women who fought and fell. They who answered the call whether or not they agreed with the orders or policy. Keep in your prayers those who died in service to others. Those who, in GEN Powell's words those men and women the US
has sent...to fight in foreign lands but has never asked for any more land than is enough in which to bury those who did not return.
On a more personal note, Goodspeed to friends who put out their hand and touched the face of God in various places:
A route outside Sadr City, the reason I became a ballistics/armor engineer
SoCal Overwwater Op Area
Chocolate Mountain SoCal Gunnery Range
Dare Bombing Range, NC
