  • Honoring Those That Served...

    I wrote it in my blog. But I figured I should write it here too.


    Thank you.

    To those that served and are serving. I remember you on this Veteran's Day. Thank you.


    To the families that see their loved ones off while they keep the home fires burning. Thank you.
    :love: Always keep smiling because you never know who is falling in love with it.:love:

            my parents immigrated to the states in the 1970's fleeing persecution in Franco-controlled Spain. They taught me to value and appreciate the freedoms offered in the US.

            No matter what your role is in the military (save for the present commander-in-chief, but lets not get into that), I appreciate the service.

                Ahh, Basic Training, the good old days... I myself learned to fire that M16, attach a bayonet to the end and stab someone with it to preserve ammo, throw a live grenade, walk for endless miles carrying a 20lb ruck sack, dig a foxhole and so many various other things only to go work in a computer room which morphed into computer repair and support and eventually design webpages before getting out. Yes, Basic came in handy there.

                I do thank all those that I served with, all those serving now and all those who have served in the past. Including my husband, my brother, my mother, my father, my grandfather and my uncle - we're an Army family around here for sure!

                    It's a little late in getting this out but Palm Springs has a Veterans' Day Parade every year. Among our large population of snowbirds and the full time residents there are a lot of Vets in the valley.

                    It's usually a good turn out and the weather should be gorgeous.

                      Man those were good times. What about the gas chamber? That was awesome! And pugel stick fighting (I think that's how its spelled)? Did you learn how to make "ranger pudding" with your MRE's? I actually loved basic, it was the closest to camping I've ever been!

                      Where did you go to Basic? I was at Ft. Jackson, SC. Anyone see "Renaissance Man" with Danny DeVito? It was filmed at Ft. Jackson. I actually got to do the obsitcle course featured in the movie.

                            OMG, I totally went there, too! Victory Tower, Baby!! I love that movie just because of that and I can smell the smells and feel the air again from doing PT in that exact same field where in the movie he is calling them to get him out of there, LOL! Ranger Pudding, yum, victory punch, even yummier - hehehe! And how did I forget the gas chamber, ooh every time I think of it, I can smell it and feel my forehead burning again. It burned for the rest of Basic every time I put my kevlar helmet on. When were you there? I went July - Sep 1992.

                              I'm loving this thread... listening to a couple of solders reminisceing....


                              I watched Mr. Rogers today... ya know, like everyone does. anyway they had a song on it:

                              "It doesn't matter who needs help
                              if you are strong in mind and body
                              You should help all who you can"

                              it doesn't rhyme, but it still makes me think of solders.

                              God bless and thanks.
