   Ole buzzard  Tomorrow (two minutes from now ) will be Veterans' Day. To all my brothers and sisters in arms, I say "Thank you. I have been proud to stand with you."

I have many good memories of 22+ years of active duty and Reserve service. Sometimes I am sad that they are gone.

However, my oath of enlistment has no expiration date, and my resolve is as strong as it ever was.

   Balogreene  I write Tech Manuals for the Armed Forces. Thursday we had a couple more in our building to look at one of our systems, and do a LORA (something about how much maintenance to put on what soldiers ). May I salute "my" guys, who help me write my books, approve my books, and use my books when I give them to CASCOM. I love when the green suits come in and bring a dose of reality to my job.

   Guard SGT (ret)  I retired on 19 January, 2009. This was because I never wanted to serve under a Usurper. His orders would never be lawful since he is Constitutionally banned from ever being President. He isn't and can never be a Natural Born Citizen.
And just look at what the Usurper did to Lt. Col. Lakin when he legitimately raised this question.

   Ole buzzard  The Nevada was badly damaged at Pearl Harbor. It was brought home and repaired. It later participated in the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944.
