    I lost a nephew in Baghdad in 2007. My other nephew was severely wound in Afghanistan in 2013, but recovered. I do remember!

    Don’t ever say “white privilege” to my face. … I have lived a long time, i have heard my grand parents talk of their lives and i know the Faith, sacrifice and sorrows our nation was built on.
    God have mercy on us – clarify our understanding of our past, the good (mostly) and the bad (yes, there’s that, too, but less than the good)! ! ! Do we need wisdom? I think so. Skin shade has very little to do with the grey matter inside our skulls…

    My dad flew a B-17 in the air war over Germany (1944).
    He and one of the waist gunners were the only two out of the original crew who survived all 25 missions.

    That is absolutely amazing! Thank you for sharing what your dad did. My dad lost a cousin on the last destroyer that was sunk by the Japanese. It was a “mistake” as Japan had already surrendered, but the word hadn’t reached everyone yet.

    My late father was a WWII B-29 bomber pilot in the Pacific.

    My younger brother has been active US Army since 1996 when got his commission (he will be retiring in 2022). Did 2 deployments to Iraq (was wounded in 1 of them) and 2 to Afghanistan.

    My dad served in the Marines, but did not see any combat. Two of his brothers served in South Korea during the Korean war. I believe they both were in the battle at the Chosin Resevoir. There, my uncle Ronald was killed in action. My uncle Donald survived his tour of duty and passed away a few years ago.

    There are several DVD’s available regarding the battle at the Chosin Resevoir. Several veterans of the battle are interviewed about the experience, and what they had to say was quite enlightening.

  8. Em says:

    Dan, yes that battle deserves to be remembered by all of us! ! !

    Yes, Em. So true. And good to read here from those who have served or have relatives who have served.
