    This is a debt we cannot pay; but, only be thankful that there are those who put their country before themselves!!

    Scrammer,you are ~So~ right !

    I played TAPS, for my father's VFW post, #9602 at three cemetaries, from the time I was Twelve, to Sixteen... I sold poppies, with my family, door to door...

    And enlisted, US ARMY, 1968, not to avoid the draft, I enlisted before I was 18, had the contract signed and ready to go in, prior to age 18.

    Today, our citizens have no understanding what it took out of us, in WWII... And what took for us to do it. Ask anyone under Sixty, if they know "who" Rosie the Riveter was, they'll blank stare you 98% of the time.

    I know, because my adopted Grand Mother Was One! At 4'10" she built ships in the Bremerton Ship Yard, and until they day she died was such a kind gentle woman... Underneath that exterior, was a couragous person who could not "go and fight" so She built ships so Men could...

    And the young women of today scream for equality... Bah.

    Cool, my mom riveted Liberty Ships and also assembled tank components for Harvester. On the other hand my Granddaughter is a corpsman in the Navy and on her way to the middle east.
