    jgriffin I am sorry for your huge loss. Your father served when he was ask and is a hero regardless of the final results or reasons we were at war there.

    SinceMemorial Day -- Decoration Day as it was once known -- is about & for thosewho made the Supreme Sacrifice, lest I forget those I served with in Echo-2-12:

    PFCDavid L Felt, USMC, DOB 04/05/46, Sacramento, CA KIA 08/17/65
    Lt.Peter Paul Domiano, USMC, DOB 10/18/43, Industry, NY KIA 07/01/66
    PFCBilly Dean Nelson, USMC, DOB 06/30/47, Lommis, NE KIA 07/20/66
    PCFBradley Alan Pearson, USMC, DOB 11/27/46,Clear Lake, WI KIA 07/20/66

    Andmost of all:
    PFCJohn Alton Girod JR, USMC, DOB 06/14/44, Denham Springs, LA KIA 02/21/66

    TheGerman song "Ich hatte einen Kameraden" --"I had a comrade" is played onGerman Remembrance Day . Part of it goes:

    Abullet flew towards us
    meant for me or meant for you?
    It took him away,
    he lies beneath my feet
    like a piece of myself.


    Inthe case of Johnny, it wasn’t a bullet, but shrapnel & if it wasn’t forhim, it would have hit me....

    Thanks to all our veterans!
    If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

    The essence of retirement;

    Like oats through a horses butt.......so go the days of my life.
    I'm only in my 60s,I have a nice long life ahead......big plans.
    Eating,sleeping and swatting flies......life is good.
