    To my father, (army)who literally gave his right arm in Vietnam. To my grandfathers, A. J. (Marines)sniper wounded on I believe Saipan and Harold (army)who was shrapneled and frost bit in I believe Belgium. And to my uncles Donald and Eugene, (marines) who stayed there. Finally, my nephew Colton, Air Force, currently stationed for 2 yrs in Montana. I hoped I have lived a life and been sufficiently loyal to our flag to be worthy of you all.

        The military comprises just under 1.29 million men and women, or less than 0.5% of the U.S. population.

        A very small group of Americans doing so much.

        Thank you veterans and active members for all you do and have done.

        Thank God and God bless all those who gave all.

            I was in the Air Force from 1966 to 1970. I was a Weapons specialist on the first operational wing of F-4D Phantoms that the Air Force had. My wing was on mobility and when the North Koreans took the USS Pueblo ,my fighter wing was in Kunsan, Korea in 72 hours with nukes on each wing. Everyone thought it was WW III. Spent the winter over there in a tent. Was on the same parallel as Deluth Minn so you know how cold it got. My last year 69-70 I was stationed at Danang, Vietnam working on F-4E Phantoms.

              Worked with a guy who was station in the Phillipines in Feb 1945 when he was shipped back home. To complete his "tour" and process him out.
              Shipped him from the Phillipines directly to an Army Air Base in Grand Forks, NoDak!
              His first job stateside was guarding German POW's on an outside work detail.
              One of the POW's told him, "You won't shoot me. I'm going to run!"
              To which he replied, "If I shoot you, I'll spend the rest of the day in a heated office filling out paperwork! Run you s.o b.! RUN!"

                  Sarge, We had nukes but the delivery vehicles were F-100's. I guess they figured low and slow had a better chance of getting to their targets. Every time a 141 came in with a nuke we had to go to the runway and stand by in case there was an accident.
