Over the years the enemy has become more difficult to identify. Each generation faces a tougher battle.

God bless all vets, past, present, and future.

I spent more than thirteen years on active duty in Marine Aviation before a knee had to be replaced, and would go back on duty now and join my brothers in arms if they could find a use for this old Marine. As Tina said earlier, our son served in the coast guard, our daughter and her husband are at Barksdale, and my dad did 23 years in the Navy and followed that up with another 20 in civil service at Pensacola. Tina's dad served in the Navy during WWII, and his dad was in the Coast Guard for more than 20 years. Our family has always loved our country and fully believes that FREEDOM isn't FREE.

God Bless our military men in service whereever they are, our thoughts are with them.

I salute all Veterans past and present. It is important to remember that freedom is not free, it comes at a very high price. Please keep our servicemen and women in your prayers. I love this country! UUHHHRRRAAAAAHHHHHHH! Semper Fi!

It's great to hear that at least in some parts of the country our veterans are being treated with respect and appreciation for what they 've done and for the sacrifices they've made for us all.

It's a far cry from what what was done during the Viet Nam era.

Glad to hear you made it back O.K., hopefully without too much residual trauma. I only got hit once, a relatively minor wound and spent three weeks on the Hosp. ship U.S.S. Repose.

Too bad it wasn't like "war hero" John Kerry who got hit THREE TIMES but never missed a day of duty, it just happened to be the # of times it took to be sent home early and he got to do the paperwork himself .

P.S. Prowlerguy, I read your book (Pop a Yellow Smoke) recently---Great Job! Brought back a lot of memories.

Greetings Brad, and Semper Fidelis!

We were in Nam the same time. I was attached to the 4th Marines up north for the first six months, then with the 5th Marines (An Hoa/Arizona Territory) from Jan - July 1970. My parent unit the whole time was 1st Radio Bn - SigInt - MOS 2579.

I spent some time on the Sanctuary!!!
Respectfully, ProwlerGuy sends
