Every veteran has different and similar memories than their peers at the same time. Maybe it's different perceptions of all of us describing that same elephant while blindfolded. The 10th anniversary hit me harder. The army flight crew was a mix of NG and reserve.

Thank you for helping mark this year.

I recall officers and NCOs that reported to me who probably didn't know by the end of 2011 they were part of history. It's a very big elephant.

Present, Arms!

Yah know... I am taking a more sanguine approach. Right, wrong, beats me. Maybe it's merely my general approach of trying to bring one more, a few more, veterans home.

I feel a connection to the flight crew and their unit. Some of my team does not, and wonders WTF is up with me.



The Baron was at EAA Airventure again this year.

I escorted MAJMrsDrBaboon as she reached out and touched a name.

Kind of like we have seen a prior generation touch names at the Wall.

It's about who served. And who remembers them.

The only CH-47 pinnacle landings while I have been onboard for were with the unit Extortion 17 belonged to. Wasn't there that day. Don't need to be. I remember.

Look, Obama , or Barry Soetoro, hates the US Military, and especially the Seals, who he was forced to use to kill Bin Laden, as the CIA found Bin Laden........ and the seals killed his blood brother.

Obama's administration was filled with Muslim Brotherhood terrorists, who Obama called simply political opponents of the republicans.

They met in Saudi Arabia long ago, when Obama as a student, was invited by the Saudi Foreign MInister, al Jabeir, via Frank Davis Marshall, to meet the King, as a gesture toward his conversion.
This was after the 1981 Brinks Robbery when he killed police officers, so what the fuck, a few more white men die??
Ok in his book, but he indeed met Osama...........
