Hondo, I'd love to thank you in person for your service to our country. ((wink wink))

My son has been in aviation for 4 years now - Germany, Iraq, South Korea, and just recently got stationed at Hunter Army Airfield near Savannah GA. He absolutely LOVES Savannah, probably because it's on the beach and close to two college campuses full of pretty young gals.

I always timed my supper to be over about 5pm, at the lowering of Old Glory. I, almost always, had to elbow my way thru a crowd at the chow hall door, who did not want to go outside and salute the flag as she was being lowered for the night. I considered it an honor to show that respect for those gone before me, and who gave that last full measure that allowed me to live the wonderful life that I had to that point--and still do!
Little did I know that years later I would have a wonderful son wearing the uniform that those heroes before him wore, and who I tried to honor in my small way, during the time I wore the uniform. I still raise Old Glory each morning, and lower her at night to honor him(and all our sons and daughters) now, as he has  been in combat serving his 4th year:((,,,,,,,,,,,

Thank you bird and your son for your service to our country!

Marie I was an officer in the navy and proudly served in several positions including engineering officer and navigator.  Have been unsuccessfully in talking any of my kids in joining the military though.

I'm flattered marie but I should be the one thanking you and your son for their service! Whenever I travel and see someone in uniform I try to buy them a drink or meal.  I can tell you are very proud of your son and I sure he is a big hit with the ladies in that area!
