Re: Know what today is??????????
I worked with a Pearl Harbor survivor. He put in his 20 in the Navy and then went to work for the government. He was there when I got there and was still working when I retired 20 years later.
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785
