POD: 8 September 2016: The past is a foreign country - they do things differently there...
L. P. Hartley (1953)
Everyday heroes. We honor God when we honor one another...
USS Mullinnix DD-944 - 1966 Vietnam Gunline
"When evening comes, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red, and in the morning,
'Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky,
but you cannot interpret the signs of the times."
Beautiful bluebird, see how she flies
Looks like she's always goin' home
If heaven had a window where the sun came shinin' through
Like a beautiful bluebird, I'd come flyin' back to you

Go back to sea...if only for a short time...
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
‘Til it's gone...
(Joni Mitchell, "Big Yellow Taxi")

(Riders On The Storm)
"Any man who may be asked in this century (1900s) what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: "I served in the United States Navy."
John F. Kennedy

All veterans deserve a parade - a chance for the nation to say thank you
We didn't do that for Vietnam Veterans
"Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world.
A veteran doesn't have that problem."
...freebird, you are, indeed, free at last...
