For Veterans Day

Actually – I’d just liek to see this happen – not just for Veterans Day.  We all know someone who has served.  Maybe I’ll post my story tomorrow for a Veterans Day post.  It would be very cool if people like this, that know some of the old fighter pilots, or are related to them, could get these folks to write down some of their stories, or perhaps podcast them.  I’m hoping to get some opportunities to record some stories when I attend the Gathering of Mustangs next summer in
Columbus, Ohio.  How cool would it be to round-up a blog community that gathers these stories, and then someday in the future we could compile them all for a book.  I know – war stories have been told over and over, but I can’t think of a better way to honor those who have served than to get their stories of service, however glorious or boring it might have been, out for the world to see.

If you know of any that already exist, please leave me a comment.  I’d love to take a look.  And it doesn’t have to be just pilots – I’d love to read the Army, Navy, Marine, Coast Guard stories, too. 

Here’s an example of a blog from a current service member (Navy), and his Veterans Day post.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
