Sitting ducks standing up there.

Turks shack.  I was mobile on a 2 man SRT during that pic on  perimeter. 

 If I remember right they carried a heavy HK rifle.    They would be out of the shacks off to the side hiding and come out in middle of the dirt rock road when we drove around at night.  Also notice their bunker under shack behind it facing perimeter.

Dad is retired AOC from the Navy and served 4 tours in Nam.  I thought it was 3 but he had me buy 66 67 68 69 pins for him. So I was wrong before.

Sorry to hear about your uncle.    Unfortunately the WW2 vets are passing on.     

When I went to Florida last month I had the book by O'Reilly on Japan and their bombing of Pearl Harbor.   Killing the rising sun.    It was all on CD's.
Wow was that book good and revealing about that time in our history.   Those Vets were great men.    My dad served during that time also.

Canada will never be the same.
85 year old ice hockey celebrity Don Cherry was fired from national television  for making comments of immigrants who don't respect the Veterans and war dead , not buying a $1 poppy to show their respect.

So much for freedom of speech.   It can be just as bad here too. 
Title: Re: Thank You Veterans
Post by: Cut4fun . on November 12, 2019, 07:51:54 am
I was wondering what all that was about and where it was over the poppy thing.  I had seen it in my news feed a few days ago.

Post by: HolmenTree on November 12, 2019, 09:49:13 am
Don Cherry still stands by what he said and not backing down. He said when he started on national TV he wasn't allowed to say Merry Christmas.
Don coached the Bosten Bruins when they won the Stanley Cups in the 1970s
