Freedom is not free, it is paid for by the blood of those who have given up all their tomorrows for our today! Sometimes I wonder if they would even recognize what it is they have bought.

I have a very good memory, just short is all.

Hi Tommy,

It is surprising, once you get to know them better, how many of the members do have some form of Military service.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Your right James,Most all I have learned in life as well as woodworking came from my experiences from veterans. My Dad (rip) was a WWII fighter pilot in the pacific during the war flying P-39 Bell Aircobras(scary with that motor behind you and a driveshaft tween your legs) and P-47 Thunderbolts. He never liked to talk much about the war tho and after I met others who had fought in WWII I began to see why. The Greatest generation of combat troops to ever serve out nation IMO,Not saying others here or elsewhere have not fought for the very same freedoms we enjoy today tho.
