Veterans Day links

This young lady is proud of her Grandfather.  I watched this show too – it was a great show with some good Phantom and Lightning footage.

On this one, you get a podcast the “the Boss” of the Blue Angels.  Also, a long video from the cockpit during a flight with the Blues.  As we’ve seen with other videos, the “guest” gets to pull some major G’s – and then takes a nap (about the midway point of the video)   🙂 

Here’s a post about a cool happening an elementary school Friday to mark Veterans Day. It included a fly-by from a nearby base. 

Ryan’s family has a cool post where they have pictures of their days in the service, and brief summaries for each of the members who served.  They are waiting for Ryan to come home from Irag.

This one is just a damn good post.

I got a lot of help from Technorati to find these – and there are so many! 

Update:  I’ve added a few more to my link blog (right column).

    Thank you for the comment on my blog.
    FYI: It just so happens that the pilot of my father’s crew was a “Yank”, William H. Holman. I believe he was the son or grandson of W.H. Holman of WWI and Jitney-Jungle fame.( )
    There is a handwritten letter in my father’s collection from a member of the Holman family expressing their hope that the crew would be found.

    Hi, Mike! Thanks for your kind comments on the little piece I wrote about our dad, USMC Col. Anthony D. Anton. You asked about the planes he flew. In the Pacific he flew the Chance-Vought Corsair and in Korea he was a member of VMF-311, the first Marine jet squadron in combat, flying the F9F-2 Panthers. He retired from the Marine Corps in 1982.

"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:
