Default Met a Hero Today

I saw a guy about my age at the supermarket that was wearing a camo T shirt that had the POW/MIA flag on one sleeve and the Purple Heart Association on the other.

After I checked out and was heading for the truck, I saw the guy and went over and talked with him a bit. He asked me if I knew what a dustoff was. I do. Turns out that he was a medic on a dustoff chopper. We didn't say much else, I just shook his hand, thanked him and told him God bless you. Then I left.

Those guys clanged when they walked.

All gave some, some gave all.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

Boy is that right ... They were studs and they rarely bought their own drinks.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
