There ought to be one day -- just one -- when there is open season on Congressmen.
Sgt Adney - Infantry - Island hopped all the way to the Phillipines - brought home 6 japanese rifles of 2 different calibers. When reassembling the parts had to go on the gun they came from or the gun would not work.
Lt. Lennart - Tank Destroyers - Battle of the Bulge - got caught in No Man's land during a fire fight & spent the night in a rain barrel hoping no one would use it as a target.
Major Lawrence - Engineering battalion
A 1/c Marvin - USAF - Korean vet
Captain Chris - US Army
???? Marvin Jr. - Marines - anyone realize it was the 236th anniversary of the Jarheads yesterday?
Lt. Mitchell - US Army - did a tour in A'stan & still active duty. Looking forward to getting out & getting on with his life.
Thankfully, to date all came home safe with little desire to talk of those days - I had a very good friend shot up in Korea - became a recluse . We could not get him over that.
Everyone's friend is No One's friend
Someday your life will flash before your eyes. It's your responsibility to make sure it's worth watching!
Took my father (Army Engineers 1967 Vietnam) out for breakfast before attending the Veterans Day service at the High School, it was a very good day. Thank you all that have served.
