Valour It and remembering.........

Now we get personal..... and give the reason for my accepting the 'Comission' of Team Leader for the Marines at Valour IT......

Hope you don't mind, and really..... well, I don't mind if you do........ so long as you contribute, and leave me a friggin' comment.... Jeebus, I alone out here?

I dedicated my part of this year's fundraiser to my Dad, the "Sar'Major", who passed a couple of weeks ago.

In later posts, I'll celebrate a Good Man's Life.....for today, I'll give you a glimpse of Him, A Marine first and foremost.... then a Husband, and a Father..... we disagreed about numerous things, but..... well, he was better armed, and 'outwardly', afraid of nothing.

This is his First Commendation...... Yup, Silver Star.......



Tis....is my Grandfather's.....on Dad's side..... another Marine. My Maternal Grandad 'Pinky', was one of the original Teufel Huenden......

A lot to live up to that no one can..... so, I'm doing this........


And....... Dad's medal case.....and some of the things that being a Marine prepared him for....... Civil Defense, Arizona Ranger....Captain thereof....


Come on, open your wallets and pull out your credit card..... it's nothing compared to the Men and Women that protect you.

They need help.

Don't make me invoke my Big Brother that died in Viet Nam....only twenty years later from Agent Orange......

Dammit, let's get it together People! Those on the Marine Blogroll over there....-> -> ->
Start writing, motivating, e-mailing everybody you know!!

Do NOT make me say 'please'...... You would seriously not like that.....

UPDATES:
Blatherings .....has a piece up and a cool video.....

Thanks,
Semper Fi.
