Mahalia Jackson. In the Summer of his years. A tribute to JFK. I went to Dallas several years ago and saw a big white X where JFK was shot. Tony and I both got a chill. And Dealy Plaza. I don't know if we will ever know the truth behind that. I personally don't believe it was one person, but that's just me I can certainly say I grew up in a wonderful era--even though I saw the assasinations of JFK, MLK, and Robert Kennedy. I also saw the first man on on moon, Sputnik, our space legacy, Kent State, Viet Nam (not that that's a high point) the first desert war, 9/11. Oh gosh we've just lived through so much and it's all been so interesting--what tales we have to tell our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Some of it so horrific, yet some of it oh so very memorable and interesting. Will it be interesting to them? I remember going to DC when Kristen was about 10 and going to Arlington to see the eternal flame for JFK, and she had no idea at the time why I was so touched. She also had no interest in the Wall and didn't understand why I did. Now that she's older and has read more history, she's got the picture. We lived that era--and we all have stories to tell from then. A friend of mine married a guy who's father was listed as MIA from Korea. A few years ago, through DNA, they found his body and were at last able to bring him home. Amazing.

I was working at the Pentagon in 1969 typing up denials for compassionate reassignments. No one wanted to go to Nam. No one.

This is a song I've sang to Buzz since he was a bsby and one of his favorites.

I grad high school at 16 an then we had a lady selected service officer here so she didn't like us an I got my Draft notice the next day . I joined the navy an the rest of the story was for little more than 34 yrs . My first cruise ( deployment ) was on the Us Coral Sea CV43 in the south china sea . It was the same carrier my Dad served on in the 1950s Korea conflict . He was proud I drew her . She was my home for 3 cruises there .

Dad--the cookie cutter is grinning like a little skunk here tonight. I made 2 and 1/2 dozen peanut butter cookies last night when I got home from work and there are none left! Does that give you any idea of what my peanut butter cookies must be? Little piglet! Even I can't believe how fast they disappeared. Tony said he ate about 1/2 dozen and he's not even all that crazy about peanut butter cookies, Guess I'll be making mroe cookies tomorrow for this crew.

And we were proud to serve, were'nt we? I know I damned sure was. One of the highlights of my basic training was when I was chosen to be in the honor guard to raise and lower the flag one day. I was so proud. I cry when I hear our National Anthem, and don't even let me hear TAPS. My mom always said that was the saddest song ever and I tend to agree. We've laid too many to rest

Proud isnt the word but theres not another that fits and the feeling there is nothing to compare it to either .

I just remember standing tall and proud and thinking nothing in the world could ever compare to that and I still feel that way. I was so proud to serve and so honored that I was able to. Buzz's daddy is over in S. Korea now and it's been rough these past few weeks, but he says he's married to the Army and is doing what it takes. I'm proud of him He volunteered--no draft these days, and they didn't want to take him because he's got a couple of tattoos. He went through a lot because that's where he wants to be and Buzz is so proud of his daddy.

My Dad always told me how proud he was . I have 2 sons and the youngest did 4 yrs of ROTC in high school and had an appointment at the Naval Academy . He want to specialize in a new field of engineering which wasn't offered there . He too a full scholarship at UT Knoxville in Engineering and then a masters in water structure and had job offers before he had his last quarter of school finished . His best friend went to West Point and is a Lt on his second tour in Iraq and they talk every week like your soldier does . It was way different when we were in but time change . A safe return home is all we can ask for .

Amen to that Dad. What we hear from him being in S. Korea is not encouraging. Buzz is sleeping, and I'm not far behind. Love you!

Good morning to all my fellow baby boomers!!!

This is a great post, Cov.
You're right on, no one wanted to go to Vietnam.
We've been to the traveling Wall when it was displayed in
Chattanooga some years back.
Curlie took some wonderful pictures that day and won first
place in a competition with one of the shots.

Music from the Vietnam era~~

This is a gritty video to watch in some places,
but right on with exactly what was going on during that time, the reality of it.
