  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

To all those who have, and are now serving in all branches of the military I say thank you! Thank you for upholding our freedom and for all the sacrifices you have made, and times that you must be away from your loved ones, and the readjusting period when you thankfully return. 
To the spouses I say thank you! Thank you for sharing you husband or wife with the demands and danger of conflicts here and abroad. For living with the demands of single parenting even though you are not. For all the moving and uncertainty that comes with the military.
To all parents who have lost a child in the war, I say thank you! You have made the ultimate sacrifice. I'm so sorry for your loss, but I'm so grateful for your loved ones' service, which has allowed me my freedom.
To all those who support our military, thank you!
I am grateful to live in a country that has such a rich heritage of brave men and women who have laid their lives on the line for ours.

Happy Memorial Day!!!!!!!

Thank you!!! Whazup.I make a point to tell anyone I see in uniform how much I appreciate what they are doing. It's closer to home than ever before now that I have a nephew who is in the Army in Baghdad, and his brother is in the Marines soon to go to Okinawa,(Sp) Japan.

jlh - Thanks for the nice post, how true it is.  I receive this mail here a few minutes ago from another cousin of mine (not Cuz Norm) and thought it was appropriate and fit into the subject of Memorial Day.  The info may be known to some, but it was new to me.


Captain Kangaroo passed away on January 23, 2004 as age 76, which is odd,
because he always looked to be 76. (DOB: 6/27/27) His death reminds us of
the following story:

Some people have been a bit offended that the actor, Lee Marvin, is buried
in a grave alongside 3- and 4-star generals at Arlington National Cemetery.
His marker gives his name, rank (PVT) and service (USMC). Nothing else.
Here's a guy who was only a famous movie star who served his time, why the
heck does he rate burial with these guys? Well, following is the amazing
answer:

I always liked Lee Marvin, but didn't know the extent of his Corps
experiences.

In a time when many Hollywood stars served their country in the armed
forces often in rear echelon posts where they were carefully protected,
only to be trotted out to perform for the cameras in war bond promotions,
Lee Marvin was a genuine hero. He won the Navy Cross at Iwo Jima. There is
only one higher Naval award... the Medal of Honor!

If that is a surprising comment on the true character of the man, he
credits his sergeant with an even greater show of bravery.

Dialog from "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson": His guest was Lee
Marvin. Johnny said, "Lee, I'll bet a lot of people are unaware that you
were a Marine in the initial landing at Iwo Jima  ...and that during the
course of that action you earned the Navy Cross and were severely wounded."

"Yeah, yeah... I got shot square in the bottom and they gave me the Cross
for securing a hot spot about halfway up Suribachi. Bad thing about getting
shot up on a mountain is guys getting' shot hauling you down. But, Johnny,
at Iwo I served under the bravest man I ever knew... We both got the Cross
the same day, but what he did for his Cross made mine look cheap in
comparison. That dumb guy actually stood up on Red beach and directed his
troops to move forward and get the hell off the beach. Bullets flying by,
with mortar rounds landing everywhere and he stood there as the main target
of gunfire so that he could get his men to safety. He did this on more than
one occasion because his men's safety was more important than his own life.

That Sergeant and I have been lifelong friends. When they brought me off
Suribachi we passed the Sergeant and he lit a smoke and passed it to me,
lying on my belly on the litter and said, "Where'd they get you Lee?" "Well
Bob... if you make it home before me, tell Mom to sell the outhouse!"
Johnny, I'm not lying, Sergeant Keeshan was the bravest man I ever knew.
The Sergeant's name is Bob Keeshan. You and the world know him as Captain
Kangaroo."

On another note, there was this wimpy little man (who just passed away) on
PBS, gentle and quiet. Mr. Rogers is another of those you would least
suspect of being anything but what he now portrays to our youth. But Mr.
Rogers was a U.S. Navy Seal, combat-proven in Vietnam with over twenty-five
confirmed kills to his name. He wore a long-sleeved sweater on TV, to cover
the many tattoos on his forearm and biceps. He was a master in small arms
and hand-to-hand combat, able to disarm or kill in a heartbeat

After the war Mr. Rogers became an ordained Presbyterian minister and
therefore a pacifist. Vowing to never harm another human and also
dedicating the rest of his life to trying to help lead children on the
right path in life. He hid away the tattoos and his past life and won our
hearts with his quiet wit and charm.

America's real heroes don't flaunt what they did; they quietly go about
their day-to-day lives, doing what they do best They earned our respect and
the freedoms that we all enjoy.

Look around and see if you can find one of those heroes in your midst.
Often, they are the ones you'd least suspect, but would most like to have
on your side if anything ever happened

Take the time to thank anyone that has fought for our freedom. With
encouragement they could be the next Captain Kangaroo or Mr. Rogers.

BTW - Memorial Day (30 May) has always been a special day to me - not just because of the holiday and decoration of graves, it was (is) my mother's birthday and that has a VERY special place in my heart.

Y'all have a nice week.

littlejohn,  it's a nice post BUT only some elements of truth.  Lee Marvin is indeed buried at Arlington but was not at Iwo Jima and received a Purple Heart for wounds at Saipan, not the Navy Cross.  Captain Kangaroo did enlist but did not see any action and Fred Rogers was never in the military at all.

How right you are.. Independantly from your post I thought I would check it out myself and stumbled across snopes.com.  Oh well, sounded like a good story, just goes to show you how much BS is floating around the internet.  I guess I have an informant who sent me "barking up the wrong tree".

Y'all have a nice week and a super holiday. Lest we never forget !!

 I always look at nov. 11 as "our" day and Memorial day for the one's that paid the ultimate price. I am sad that I knew some that paid the ultimate price in the current war and I am grateful for their sacrifice. PBS had a great memorial day tribute. The actor Charles Durning was there. He is a decorated marine and a class act. Too bad many of those in hollywood don't have the same appreciation for the military that is defending their country. The country that they don't hesitate to insult yet are privileged to live in and prosper .

Amen to that! If you notice most of those that are insulting our country don't have a clue what this war is about, or the military for that matter. They are as plastic as their credit cards.
