Many thanks to Annina for pointing me to this story about her father.  Anthony was a Corsair pilot in the South Pacific during WWII.  Read his story about getting shot down while fighting the Japanese.  He shares how communication with a shot out radio took place between one of his buddies and the naval plane that rescued him, also.

"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: www.robreider.com
