Thanks to all that served!
Good luck, good health and safe travels!
Wow, it's been a while since I've seen a pic of an EC-121! My father flew them in the Navy, late '50's until he retired in 1971. Flew out of Pax River, Newfoundland (VW-13) and Brunswick Naval Air Station, Georgia. I never got a chance to go up with him, my older brother did when they took a hop with the local Boy Scouts, but I wasn't old enough. You gotta love those big old radial engines! I was Army, Hueys and Chinooks in Iraq, when I told my Dad I was going into the Army, his reply was "Army! That's not the MILITARY!" Thank you for your Service! Take care, and God Bless.

Thank you from my heart. I taught World and US History for 22 years and I made it my privilege and honor to inform young Americans of the heroism and honor of our men and women in uniform.

I was "4 F 'd" at my pre-induction physical in 1966 (back problems).

I am the youngest of 8 (and I'm 70). I recently found out that my father volunteered for the service in '42. He was 35 and was the father of SIX at the time. They wouldn't take him in large part because of the skilled trade he was in at GE. No one in his department (if in a skilled trade doing gov't work) were taken into the service.

Again, thanx to all who served our country so well.

Gotta say, not many "thank yous" in the 70s. After 22 years of service and a 2nd civilian career retirement, I get "thank yous" routinely. Like many of you that served in the 60's and 70s, I was at first taken aback but have become thankful. Often it makes my eyes water a bit as I flashback to a dark time in our country's history. Sometimes that is noticed and I will respond and tell the individual "so glad to hear your comments - just sometimes it wasn't always so". Then I have to stop because it such a tender spot.

Anyway, thank you to all who wrote the check. The check wasn't always cashed for the full amount. Sometimes it was cashed for missed kids birthdays, graduations, divorces, Christmases and missed births. But hey, if you cannot stand someone cashing it - don't write it. No regrets, just thankful for the "thank yous".
