Just returned from the VFW National convention in Louisville Kentucky. Great time, good information shared. Met some good comrades. Learned a lot that I plan to share with my Post. Drank too much and slept too little.
All in all, a very successful convention. On to St. Louis next year.

Col. Bud Day, Heroic Pilot in Vietnam War, Dies at 88

Col. Bud Day, an Air Force fighter pilot who was shot down in the Vietnam War, imprisoned with John McCain in the notorious “Hanoi Hilton” and defiantly endured more than five years of brutality without divulging sensitive information to his captors, earning him the Medal of Honor, died on Saturday in Shalimar, Fla. He was 88.

His death was announced by his wife, Doris.

Colonel Day was among America’s most highly decorated servicemen, having received nearly 70 medals and awards, more than 50 for combat exploits. In addition to the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest award for valor, he was awarded the Air Force Cross, the highest combat award specifically for airmen.

Kathwynn, thanks for sharing such an adorable video. Dogs are truly man's best friend. Brought tears to my eyes. My dogs knocked my husband over and laid on-top of him when he came home. I've got 3 mastiffs. My husband isn't military but does PSD work as a private contractor. He leaves for 14 months each time.

Can they PLEASE drop the Mar. tag from the front of Nidal Malik Hasan, he's no major, he's a terrorist and scumbag who I personally hope they do NOT give him the death penalty which is what he wants, PLEASE give him life which i'll gladly pay taxes on and lock him up in general public with life and no parole for the killings of 13 American Military personel.

Or better yet strap him down to a truck bed and slowly drive through several major cities! lol

He sure doesn't shave like any major I've ever seen. I hope Hasan gets the death penalty.

The Things They Carried (carry)

They carried P-38 can openers and heat tabs, watches and dog tags, insect repellent, gum, cigarettes, Zippo Lighters, salt tablets, compress, bandages, ponchos, Kool-Aid, two or three canteens of water,iodine tablets, sterno, LRRP- rations, and C-rations stuffed in socks. They carried standard fatigues, jungle boots, bush hats, flak jackets and steel pots.

They carried the M-16 assault rifle. They carried trip flares and Claymore mines, M-60 machine guns, the M-79 grenade launcher, M-14's, CAR-15's, Stoners, Swedish K's, 66mm Laws, shotguns,.45 caliber pistols, silencers, the sound of bullets, rockets, And choppers, and sometimes the sound of silence.

They carried C-4 plastic explosives, an assortment of hand grenades, PRC-25 radios, Knives and machetes. Some carried napalm, CBU's and large bombs; some risked their lives to rescue others. Some escaped the fear, some dealt with the death and damage. Some made very hard decisions, and some just tried to survive. They carried malaria, dysentery, ring-worms and leaches. They carried the land itself as it hardened on their boots.

They carried stationery, pencils, and pictures of their loved ones - real and imagined. They carried love for people in the real world and love for one another. And sometimes they disguised that love with: "Don't mean nothin'!"
They carried memories for the most part, they carried themselves with poise and a kind of dignity.

Now and then, there were times when panic set in, and people squealed or wanted to, but couldn't; when they twitched and made moaning sounds and covered their heads and said "Dear God", and hugged the earth and fired their weapons blindly and cringed and begged for the noise to stop and went wild and made stupid promises to themselves and God and their parents, hoping not to die.

They carried the traditions of the United States Army, and memories and images of those who served before them. They carried grief, terror, longing and their reputations. They carried the soldier's greatest fear: the embarrassment of dishonor. They crawled into tunnels, walked point, and
advanced under fire, so as not to die of embarrassment. They were afraid of dying, but too afraid to show it. They carried the emotional baggage
of men and women who might die at any moment.

They carried the weight of the world; They carried Each other.
