Our youngest Son In Law (we have several) is hoping to become an Army Trauma Surgeon. I guess you know where he'll be working. He's in the NG now and hoping to start Med School next fall.

Great Kid. He certainly has the smarts for it and the desire.

Thanks for your service, Doc.

Jim

Just want to put this out there, as I'm a "New Jack" maybe I missed this in an earlier post, but it should be restated, those of us who raised our right hand to defend this country's ideals (whether PC today or not) are a special group of individuals. I don't think we are all heros as the public wants to "throw" around so easily. However, if your reading this, you are not only special, but are also a "survivor" at least physically of your commitment to this country's freedom. There are no "regular" guys/gals, officers/ enlisted, Marines(OK, an exception, LOL), Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors or Coastguardsmen, Active/Reserve/National Guard we are all "special"(not short bus) citizens, remember that. I don't think you ever look at the flag/nation the same again after you have offered your life to her. Finally, lets not forget the folks who supported our service, I know my wife is a prisoner of "my" war and I know some of you know what I'm talking about. She is my savior and a Godsend from above... To All, live long and travel safe...

"Still looking for our AS"

Regards,
James and Rebecca
James and Rebecca - You are right, of course... and thanks for the reminder and your family's service. Also, we all "earned" the right to, whenever the flag passes by or the National Anthem is played or the Pledge is said, render a hand salute to the colors (instead of the hand over the heart.)

This is something Congress authorized in 2008 and yet few people know. One thing in the Congressional committee hearing reports as to "why" allowing veterans to salute was that, at a public gathering those who rendered the hand salute even though in civilian clothes would be readily recognizable to their fellow citizens as VETERANS. So, you earned it and in rendering the hand salute you are saying to other veterans "I'm one of you."

See Rules for Rendering Hand Salute of U.S. Flag - Military Benefits - Military.com

(Hope you find that AS soon!)

Not a veteran, but I am heavily involved with an organization that resurrects vintage warbirds. Most of our collection is RAF/RCAF, but we also have some a/c that is related to the USAF. We are about to build an air-worthy WW1 Sopwith replica that will be sent to France in 2017 for the 100th anniversary of Vimy Ridge.

Why do I do this?

Because the roar of those engines speak for those who have been silenced. It is my #1 passion in life.

Today (August 25th) is the 75th anniversary of the start of the Battle of Britain.

A few years back, I backed my pick up truck into a parking lot in town so that we could watch the Christmas Parade as it passed by. The kids were younger then and one of them was participating in the high school marching band. A fellow walked up and asked if he could have a seat on the tailgate with us. Sure, sure. As the Colors passed by, both of us stood and saluted, then sat back down to enjoy the parade. It's all about the kids, right? When the parade was over we shook hands and parted ways. Don't who that guy was, but he knows the rules.

A Vet knows the rules.

Jim

Must be strange coincidence day. Susan's eldest uncle was a US Navy flyer prior to the United States' involvement in World War Two. As a trained fighter pilot, he was allowed to resign his commission and travel to Britain to join the RAF. You can guess the rest of the story, pretty much. He became a fighter pilot in the RAF and participated in the Battle of Britain. Sadly, he was lost around the time Pearl was bombed. Susan's Dad joined the US Air Force (then known as the USAAC) a soon as came of age. He did well. Two DFC's and seven Air Medals. A personal Hero of mine.

Rest in Peace, Pete. You are missed.

Jim
