Good stuff, Ura-Ki. You have to be very proud of your kids-- and of yourself. I have two uncles (Frank in the 2nd Batt, 506 PIR, Company E and Eddie in the Corps) who were in the military. One cousin who flew F-14s from carriers (Marines) and eventually ended-up on HMX-1 under George H. W. Bush. My dad was RA in the early 1950s. Then there's me, the poo-see who cowered when it was time to step-up and defend Lady Liberty. It's something I will never live down. I'm putting it on this board to let our readers know that I'm forever grateful for what real men do-- because I'm not man enough to do the same. My continued Freedom is dependent upon men who are far more "American" than me. And for that, I thank all who wore the uniform when I chose not to do so...
