Lift a glass and say a prayer of rememberence today for the 534 brave young soldiers who lost their lives some 45 years ago in the Ia Drang valley in Vietnam.

Never forget!

Everybody knows that a good mother gives her children a feeling of trust and stability. She is their earth. She is the one they can count on for the things that matter most of all. She is their food and their bed and the extra blanket when it grows cold in the night; she is their warmth and their health and their shelter; she is the one they want to be near when they cry. She is the only person in the whole world in a whole lifetime who can be these things to her children. There is no substitute for her. Somehow even her clothes feel different to her children's hands from anybody else's clothes. Only to touch her skirt or her sleeve makes a troubled child feel better.
- Katharine Butler Hathaway

Born in 1923, a few years later came the Great Depression. Then WWII and Korea. Grew up on a small farm in rural Carroll County, Indiana. The family of eight "made do" through those troubled times.

The picture is a copy of the snapshot my Pop carried with him while in the Pacific theater. It is my favorite.

She remains as beautiful to this day.

Happy Birthday Ma! I Love You more than I can say.


Taze me again bro, one more time bro, may I have another, bro?

Police: Willoughby man threw chair at officers, stunned three time - The News-Herald News : Breaking news coverage for Northern Ohio

What happened to a good ol' nightstick & blackjack beat down?

I know the LEO's of today are bound by a different set of ROE as years ago but this is pitiful. This guy needs a couple weeks in the hospital and about 5 to 7 at the local "institution".

My Pop always said, "don't be a smart ass" and "DO NOT fight with the cops".

Wise man, my Pop.


Running Into Hell

"Sure, we want to go home. We want this war over with. The quickest way to get it over with is to go get the bastards who started it. The quicker they are whipped, the quicker we can go home. The shortest way home is through Berlin and Tokyo. And when we get to Berlin, I am personally going to shoot that paper hanging son-of-a-bitch Hitler. Just like I'd shoot a snake!"
General George S. Patton - (addressing to his troops before Operation Overlord) - 5th June 1944

Patton and his Third Army didn't make it to France until August of 1944 but his words I feel, pretty well express the overall intentions of the invasion of France on June 6th, 1944. Get it on, get it over and go the hell home!

It would be another year or so before it was over in Europe and many more would fall on the battlefields there. For thousands, home was by way of the Pacific.

God bless the hero's that answered the call.

May the fallen rest in eternal peace.


Peace Officers Memorial Day

In 1962, President Kennedy signed a Congressional resolution designating May 15th as the Peace Officers Memorial Day.

Take a moment today to remember the fallen officers and their families.

R.I.P. Officers.
