GrandSire is a Veteran & a Trooper & all round good guy. His Veteran Buddies from the Great War remain in contact, those left standing or sitting as the case may be. They communicate electronically, digitally & by snail mail. No moss growing btw the toes of these Vets. They publish a Newsletter called Reveille which GrandSire looks forward to receiving & reading quarterly.
GrandSire received his Reveille yesterday. It brings a smile to his face to read the currents haps of his old friends, comrades in arms & present day LDBFFs (Long Distance BFFs) which a lotta us have. He was most interested in the article regarding the National D Day Museum in NOLA. The article said:
BlackHawk Reveille: Feb & March 2013
The National D Day Museum in NOLA celebrates the American spirit, the teamwork, optimism, courage & sacrifice of the men & women who won WWII & promotes the exploration & expression of these values for future generations.
The museum is a celebration of personal stories, preserves important materials for future research & scholarship, inspires future generations to learn life lessions – teamwork, value of democracy, unsung bravery – from the most complex military operation ever staged.
GrandSire liked that article todolly a lot. Perhaps 1 day we might be fortunate enough to escort GrandSire to see the D Day Museum.
I know. I know. I’m just a dog. It just seems to me that Americans have lost focus on some of the ideals that welded the Greatest Generation into a Band of Brothers (& Sisters) that preserved this great nation through Dark & Perilous Times & effected a positive outcome for the whole of AnimalPlanet.com. We seem to have lost focus on Teamwork, Bravery, Generosity, Scholarship, Sacrifice & Investment in our Future in favor of:
I’m Right & you’re Evil
The 1 who dies with the most toys wins
Choose Up Sides & Point the Blame Finger @ Them
I got mine, Frack U.
