In honor of all those who have fallen, this Old Marine would very much like to wish a Blessed Memorial day to all, especially to the families who have lost a loved one.
Thank you for the thoughts Old Marine from an Old Naval Aviator. We are not a Gold Star family, but i have many friends on ‘The Wall’. Some of them are tragically close to the end ... which is actually near the middle.
Same to u "Swabbie". U and I know what that means. Semper Fi and hope u and yours can continue travelling.
Your screen name says you are probably a generation before me. But Semper Fi. I did a lot of flying with Marines. Did you ever know Henry Wildfang? I also once had the pleasure of working for Stephen Pless.
I did not know the gentleman. My service time was late 60's to early 70's.
