Semper Fidelis.

I just watched a documentary.about the F105 Squadron operating out of Thailand during the Vietnam War. A pilot had adopted a stray, raised him from a pup.. Roscoe, I think. He would wait for him alongside the runway until he returned. One day, he didn't. He was shot down, MIA. The Dog was devastated, and waited by the runway, for weeks.

Just like Trixie would wait for Billy...

Roscoe was adopted by the Squadron, and was much loved. He had a chair up front at the Mission briefings. If he sat up and paid attention, the mission would be rough. If He slept through the meeting, the missions would be uneventful.

Roscoe passed away while with the Squadron.
We are all in debt to our Armed Forces. Godspeed. RIP.

God Bless. This morning on the CBS Sunday Morning news program. The Feature story was the only surviving World War II Medal of Honor Marine; 97 years young.
Amazing man and still going strong. Phenominal story. He was at Iwo Jima Invasion. He was 19 years old. Check it out.

Thank You to all Veterans who have served and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today. My father was a Marine during WWII and was recalled for the Korean War. I had a chat with the neighbor lady this morning, her father was a POW in Germany for over a year, she still has some of the letters he sent home. Another neighbor who was a close friend of mine and who I bought my home from, passed away in January, 98 years old, he was in the Army WWII and seen combat action Battle of the Bulge, Ardennes Forest, Wales, Scotland, England, France, Germany and Belgium. He never spoke much of his service till the last couple years of his life. The stories were horrifying and put a chill up your spine, and a few stories were funny of experiences he endured. The Greatest Generation.
