    Today is a day that many Veterans hold as sacred and emotional... Some of us have lost friends and brothers, compatriots and Teammates, in the line of duty, protecting and defending the rights of the innocent...

    Therefore, this is my Tribute to the men and brothers of the SEAL Team Community that I was fortunate enough to be associated with, as well as consider freinds....

    Petty Officer Steve Morris
    Lieutenant John Conners
    Chief Petty Officer Don McFaul
    Petty officer Chris Tilghman
    Petty Officer Issac Rodriquez
    Chief Petty Officer Matt Bourgeois
    Lieutenant Commander Erik Kristensen
    Petty Officer Jeff Lucas
    Lieutenant Mike Murphy
    Petty Officer Jeff Taylor

    All these men were my Shipmates and I will always remember them for what they stood for... U will find no better Special Warfare Operators in the world, and I consider myself honored to have known these men....

    a worthy remembrance Les ! ........ thanks for that

    certain names from the past can elicit a variety of responses. The mention of Hitler, for example brings feelings of contempt. On the other hand, a great historical figure like Churchill brings a positive response(most of the time). Even within the circle of our own acquaintances, we remember some individuals with thankfulness, while we think negatively of others whose lives were spent in selfish pursuits.
    On memorial Day in the US, we pause to honor those of past generations. While many stirring recollections flood our minds, we realize that the time will come when each of us will also be a memory. what will others recall of our words and deeds when they think of us ?
    for James Lewis Pettigru his epitaph

    UNAWED BY OPINION, UNSEDUCED BY FLATTERY
    UNDISMAYED BY DISASTER, HE CONFRONTED LIFE
    WITH COURAGE, AND DEATH WITH CHRISTIAN HOPE.

    Amen brother .......... to all those that served and are serving ............

    :salute: This year marked the 20th anniversary of the raid on Libya. Among all the others, I want to make special mention of Capt. Fernando Ribas-Dominicci and Capt. Paul Lorence. Both good men who were involved in what I think was the opening salvo in the war on terror. Lost in the Gulf of Sitra coming off target near Tripoli flying F-111F 70-2389 "Karma 52" during Operation El Dorado Canyon. Gone but not forgotten. Picture below is the 48th TFW Wing Commander's plane "Miss Liberty" 72-448 with the loadout that was used for the operation.

    Here is a list of soldiers that were assigned to my Task Force during my tour in Iraq that made the ultimate sacrifice. May they never be forgoten. :salute:

    “...The world will little note nor long remember what we say here,
    but it can never forget what they did here.
    It is rather for us the living, we here be dedicated to the great task remaining before us
    —that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the
    last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain,
    that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people,
    for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
    --President Abraham Lincoln
