Default Friday, November 11th

Just a reminder. Friday is Veterans Day in the US and Remembrance Day in Canada

Regardless of your feelings regarding current situations, please take a moment to think of those who have served, or are serving, your Country to protect your way of life and that of others...

I was that which others did not want to be.

I went where others feared to go, and did what others failed to do

I asked nothing from those who gave nothing and reluctantly
accepted the thought of eternal loneliness...should I fail.

I have seen the face of terror; felt the stinging cold of fear;
and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment'* love.

I have cried, pained, and hoped...but most of all,
I have lived times others would say were best forgotten.

At least someday I will be able to say that I was proud
of what I was .... a soldier.

Oh yeah, I turn 41 that day, too.....

We have the memorial service tomorrow for the kids at the school. There are 2 going on at the same time, one at Jessica'* school and one at Andrew'*. Unfortunatly I can only go to one, so I will go to Andrew'*, that'* where I work. I think it is very important that the kids see and hear and learn. Thanks Mos, for reminding all of us.

As you pause to think of us in the armed forces, I want to show what we are thinking on the same day-

The proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do something to pay tribute To our fallen comrades. So since we are part of the only Marine Infantry Battalion left in Iraq the one way that we could think of doing that is By taking a picture of Baker Company saying the way we feel. It would be awesome if you could find a way to share this with our fellow countrymen. I was wondering if there was any way to get this into your papers to let the world know that "WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN" and are proud to serve our country."

Not trying to get off topic, but I thought I'd share the URL with some excellent pics of what'* going on over there now. Never forget! I friend of mine'* step-son is a WO and an Apache driver. This is the site of his unit....

www.atroopblackjack.com (best if viewed with IE)

The album is cool.

Bring'em home safe when the job'* done!

Lest we never forget our heros. Without their efforts, what we have today would not exist.
