Thanks Marion for posting this video, it is fantastic and I appreciate it very much. I am so thankful my grandson came back all together, my family has always contributed, five direct ancestors in the Revolutionary War, My father was in the Navy, WWI, my Brother in the Army WWII and Korean, I was in the Army, Korean, my Sister in the Airforce Vietnam Flight Nurse (MAJOR) and now my Grandson in the Marines, guess we kinda represented all of the various branches of the military except the Coast Guard but my Grand Nephews wife is in the Coast Guard.

Thank you, this is great, and it really hits home. I had ancestors on both sides in the Civil War, lost an uncle in WWII, died before I was born, ex-husband, brother, and four cousins in the army all at the same time, Viet Nam, Korea & Okinawa (I live there for 18 months) We need to be behind our guys 100% :patriot::patriot::patriot:

PD,

I agree with you 100%; no matter what anyones stance is our military needs 100% support. They are defending our freedom and rights to be able to have the opinion one may have. All military personel, past, present and future deserve our respect and support.:patriot::patriot::patriot:

My first tour in the navy was on a ship in San Dog...the Frederick - an LST, large slow target. Nothing riding in a storm in flat bottom ship that rocks-n-rolls.

I'm fortunate, my XLR is my daily driver so I excited every day....driving my car.

If any of you ever find yourself in Dayton,OH, be sure to stop by the Air Force Museum. It is an awesome place (it's FREE). The Memorial Garden is very moving. Here are some pictures:

Vets on the forum

I was stationed on the Aircraft Carrier USS Constellation ported in Coronado, California from 1972-1975. These were 3 of the most memorable years of my life. Made 2 West Pac trips to Vietnam and saw many parts of the world that I will never forget. Sometimes I wish I would have stayed in.

My 23 years in Navy are near and dear to me...so many places, experiences, and friends. I remember the Connie too, it was off of Somalia and I had to medevac (medical evacuation) one of my female sailors who had miscarriaged. She (Connie) was a lifesaver - literally.

Somalia was a another story or as we say in the Navy, another seastory.

Veteran's Day Parade

Tomorrow my new neighbors will be picking me up at 8:00 A.M. for breakfast and then to be in the Veteran's Day Parade. He will be driving his 1968 Buick Convert. He asked me to ride with him about two months ago so of course I couldn't pass up that invitation. Veteran's Day isn't until the 11th but because the parade is on Saturday maybe there will be a larger turnout this year. First Robin:patriot::patriot::patriot::patriot::patriot::patriot::patriot:
