    Thank you all for the kind words. Having been a member of Uncle Sam's Sailing Club for over 19 years now~ I've been proud to serve and am sure that I'll look back on it and realize it wasn't all for naught. Next Summer I'll be able to enjoy a more 'normal' life, but I'm sure I'll miss the NAVY life~ it's been worth it to me...

    Ah! A fella Swabby from my "Ole Stompin' Grounds" I was on the USS COONTZ DLG-9 when in the Navy 1963 to January 13, 1967. Long Beach was my homeport, but San Diego should have been as much time as we spent there. Probably all of my favorite bars are now gone, such as "MY PLACE". The Coontz has been scrapped in Pennsylvania. I sure do miss those good ole days Dave!
    I'll be in a Veterans Day Parade today at 2:30pm

    I too thank those who have and continue to serve the community, I tried to join the Royal Australian Air Force when younger, unfortunately my eyesight prevented it.

    If the Purple Heart is considered a "Military" award surely a "Civilian" award can be created? In any case I have heard it said that a Police Force is a Military Style Organization.

    Happy Veterans Day to All

    Indeed, the irony being that the insurgents believe they are doing Allah's work to oppose the west.

    Such is life.

    When our military is protecting the elderly, children and their mothers from wanton slaughter and abuse, such as Saddam inflicted, I call that the Lord's work. I am sure He would rather less blood be shed to accomplish that task. I'm not a hero, just a Cold War warrior who did his job.

    Interesting Nash poster, though I note the soldiers are both white. Somewhat ironic that 10 years after the war that Nash suggested would create an America where all were free, Rosa Parks was ordered to give up her seat to a white man in Alabama, and later that state set the dogs onto Martin Luther King and his supporters, whilst also doing their best to resist freedom for the black Americans.

    So much for freedom.

    I recall reading Dr Robert Schuller relating the story of a Black man who felt he was just a poor "n....." and Dr Schuller pointed out that, in fact, he was just the opposite, despite the abominable ways the white people treated them, black America survived and prospered (at least some of them).

    We had our Remberance Day here today 11/11/07, rather sad to think such evil things as wars still exist in the 21st Century, one would have thought we would have learned from the horrors of the 20th Century.
    A special thanks for the American contribution toward keeping the Japanese from reaching Australia in WW2.

    I disagree with Bams about "our side" doing the Lord's work. It seems that both sides in wars imagine that Deity is on "their" side, when I feel Deity is watching sadly from the sidelines.

    Goddess Bless
