    May Dad was in the 42nd Rainbow Divison formally known as the fighting 69th. I was hoping he would last until my son and I finished the 64 Impala but it was not to be. He would have liked the HAMB. He helped me with many cars growing up in the 60's and 70's and really if not for him, I'd know nothing of these things. I was able to take my son to a reunion of his fellow infantry men a couple years ago in Tulsa. Many of you in Tulsa know of the Rainbow Highway dedicated the the 42nd as a tribute to this division and about 300,000 other men who fought to free those in Germany's concentration camps. That highway runs south towards Camp Gruber where he was stationed before going to war in 1942. He was from WI and met my Mother one night after riding in to town in the back of a 6X to see (I think Patsy Cline) (still the best voice I've ever heard). So, in remembering him since he passed April 2nd, I can't tell you how much I appreciate all who served and wonder why I have not done the same.

    Thanks again and again brave ladies and gentlemen!

    LOL, haven't thought about that song in a long time. I had to get a series of shots because I was on that riverbank covering the back side of the bank during the robbery/hostage crisis. Shit river is the only river I've ever seen that would burn. Yup, I was a hardhat. Goddamnedist place in the world to be a cop. BTW, did you know those grey Chevy trucks we used had 454 police interceptor engines in them? I once pushed a taxi driver right thru the front of the pizza parlor up at the T because he wouldn't move out of the way. [​IMG]

    I spent eleven years in the Air Force. I went just about anywhere I chose. Yeah I was in Viet Nam and yes I volunteered but I figured I'd be better prepared to go if it was my Idea. [​IMG] Excluding Nam it was 9 years of a lot of fun. I was stationed in Spain, Germany and did a short time at Yokota Japan. Came home each time with the top of the line state of the art electronics. Was the first in my home town to have an 8-track "Stereo" in my chevelle instead of a AM radio. [​IMG]

    Hey Joe. I rode in one of those trucks one night going out to a Shore Patrol post. I thought it was faster than normal. I stepped in what looked like solid ground while on Shore Patrol in the Fish Market that same night, and sunk up to my ankle in fish crap/guts/heads/leavin's/etc. Had foot gunge for ten years after that; peeled off in chunks. It took lots of Tinactin to clear it up; never had to get the shots though. I did have to get the other kind of shot due to a trip down Tin Can Alley. A million cc's, double barrel, right into my soft white ass. And a good time was had by all!

    Thanks to ALL who have served our country. It's you people that make the freedom and liberty that we all enjoy possible.

    Many members of my family have served our country. My Grandpa being the biggest example of a Hero I've ever had. A veteran of World War II, he served in Italy with the 15th Air Force where he flew bombing missions over central Europe. He was a Tail gunner in a B-17, and his plane was shot down (at somewhere around 20,000 feet) over Hungary. He was a prisoner of war in Hungary, Austria and Germany. His last prison camp was liberated on April 29, 1945, by Gen. George Patton's 3rd Army. His story has made me thankful for everything that I have and great full to all of those who have sacrificed.

    --Thanks Grandpa.

    Remember what? Oh yea, those jeepney things. I once asked a jeepney driver why he had so many chrome horse ornaments on his hood. His answer: "Each one adds one extra horse power." No shit Joe!
