I took this picture in summer of 1972. It was taken at DaNang AB, Vietnam. We all were bomb loaders on F-4′s. I would ask that everyone will share this so I can see if I can make contact.
Call for Vietnam Memorial Photos Continues:
When the Vietnam Education Center finally opens in 2019, it hopes to have photos of most of the 58,286 Americans killed in the war. To date approximately 32,500 pictures have been collected – 56% of the total.
Thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers, New Mexico is the first and only state to provide photos of all (398) its residents killed in Vietnam.
Faces Never Forgotten campaign is collecting the photos for the Wall of Faces project, which will project the images onto a two-story wall as part of a rotating exhibit.
Submit a photo, send a high-quality 8 x 10 copy only to the:
Veterans Memorial Fund, Attn: Call for Photos, 2600 Virginia Avenue, NW, Suite 104, Washington DC 20037.
For more information, call (202) 393-0090 or e-mail: email@example.com
If you know a family of a veteran killed in Vietnam, please pass this information on to them.
Each year in April, we join in celebrating ordinary people doing extraordinary things during National Volunteer Week. VA’s Caregiver Support Program is celebrating our volunteer Caregivers who serve as Peer Mentors in our Caregiver Peer Support Mentoring Program. Volunteering as a Caregiver Mentor provides support to other Caregivers of Veterans by letting them know that they are not alone in their struggles or in their triumphs. National Volunteer Week celebrates ordinary people. Our Caregiver Peer Support Mentors contributed approximately 1,200 volunteer hours this past year. VA’s Caregiver Support Program is happy to join in the celebration of the enormous contributions that volunteers make every day. Thank you to our Caregiver Mentors for their work and dedication!
The VA Caregiver Peer Support Mentoring Program was developed to strengthen relationships between Caregivers of all eras, to provide an opportunity for networking, and to empower Caregivers to help one another. The VA Caregiver Peer Support Mentoring Program began in January 2012. Experienced Caregivers are matched with less experienced Caregivers to provide support and an opportunity to share common experiences. More than 150 Caregivers have participated, both as Mentors and as Mentees. Interested in learning more about the Caregiver Peer Support Program? Please contact your Caregiver Support Coordinator or visit www.caregiver.va.gov to find the closest Caregiver Support Coordinator by using the zip code look up.
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
Written by a USMC Vet. (I can’t argue with any of it. Passing it along as it was received.)
The American Dream ended (on November 6th) in Ohio. The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.
A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Union Members, Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America.
The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch… The Pit Bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order.
Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own home states, and Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing “post Sandy” tribute that elevated the “Commander-in-Chief” to Mother Teresa status. (Aside: with the way the polls were run, he didn’t need any help!)
People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.
You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates & shy not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.
Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to “white guilt” and political correctness…

IF YOU ARE VETERAN, PLEASE READ. IF NOT, PLEASE FORWARD!!!If you are not interested in this message, simply delete it. If you are not a veteran, send this to those that you know who are, or to those who may know veterans.(The 2014 United States elections will be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. During this midterm election year, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested in this election. Get out and VOTE!!!!)A movement has been started by our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014.. They are organizing themselves, but this can be done by all of us. The President, the Commander in Chief, has made the Rules of Engagement (ROE) so difficult, that our troops are often killed before they can even get permission to fight. Nothing has been done to stop our troops from being murdered by the Afghanis they are training, either.Now, the President wants the US to sign on to the UNs International Criminal Court (ICC), which would allow the UN’s ICC to arrest and try US troops for War Crimes, without the legal protections guaranteed under US Law, and from which there is no appeal.The President, with his Democratic control of the Senate, has nearly all the power. If the Non-Establishment Republicans, and Conservatives, can take back the Senate in 2014, our troops can once again be protected from unnecessary danger. Please consider this, and send it on to your mailing lists. Thank You,Interestingly enough, when GWB was president you heard about the military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan almost daily. With Obama in the White House, the mainstream media has been strangely quiet. —More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before. During the last month, over 50 additional NATO and US servicemen have been murdered, inside jobs by those who are hired to be a force for good in Afghanistan .The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half-staff for the Sikhs that were killed. There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president. It has taken on a dangerous tone. No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war. Obama has had 5 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform.But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president’s lackeys in the senate and the house, especiallyHarry Reid, Bill Nelson, and most any other democrat.Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members. This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond.The one million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls. It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turn out to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.Veterans: Please forward to your lists.High Priority!For those who have fought for it, freedom has a taste the protected will never know.
GOD BLESS AMERICA . Defend us from our enemies.(Congress and the President are destroying us from within)
