Celebrating the Americans and the institutions that keep us free. We were surrounded by incredible people that we really knew little about. Fred Giles, already mentioned, Battle of the Bulge, Burchell Hopkin, B-52 pilot, Dawson also already mentioned, Mel Cozzens a bomber pilot(?), young Mel, Air Force Viet Nam, Sinclair Orendorff, Battle of the Bulge. I believe the list to be much longer and if you remember please add on to it.
Then of course there is Dwight discussed joining the Marines well past my bedtime with the folks. I stayed and listened until Mother realized that I was still up and sent me packing. I do remember that Dwight was passionate in his conversation. And we move on to modern day, there is Ross who spent a tour in Afghanistan and has landed on almost any runway in the world that would support a plane.
The above photo is merely for illustration only. I don't mean to slight anyone here, I know so little, please add, it is a great part of our lives.
