Recommended Posts

I'd like to pause to remember the fallen and to honor all of our veterans and service members this day. Thank you for your service.

My Dad enlisted in the Navy after Pearl Harbor at the age of 17 and served in submarines in the Pacific war. 50% of his shipmates in the sub fleet never made it home. He was one of the lucky ones and I am here by the grace of God. It sickens me that he fought and so many died to preserve the freedoms that we are now giving away without a fight.

I join in all of the above.

 

And, not to detract from the solemnity of the occasion, December 7 also happens to be the anniversary of another momentous event: The first date between NJCubScouter and she who later became Mrs. NJCubScouter. 34 years, yesterday. Which of course led to the inevitable "joke" that I long ago learned never, ever to repeat again, if I know what's good for me.
