Memorial Day - Military Stories time...

Please share yours.

I did not serve in any official capacity, but worked as a weapons systems designer and on the SDI Project. But I worked with a number of military retirees.

From a PhD Psychiatrist working as a human factors consultant in the early 80's:
"I was a second lieutenant in the Marines when we invaded Okinawa. We were clearing a village. I was about to jump into a hut and something said "DUCK !". So I did. And a Japanese officer's sword went past my head... would have taken my head off. So I shot him."

Ah, Memorial Day is to remember those who lost their lives, not those of us who survived.

True, but we need us "live" people to remember those that lost everything...

Which is the point of Memorial Day.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
