    Just heard an old Johnny Cash song that made me think about the sacrifices others gave for us. Song is The Ballad of Ira Hayes. About a Marine on Iwo Jima. If you have not heard it you should give it a try.
    I fear we have awaked a sleeping giant and filled it with a terrible resolve. Jap. Admiral Yamamota directly after Pearl Harbor. If the women don't find you handsome, at least they will find you handy. Red Green.

    Great song...learned it by heart when I was a kid. Then again...we only had one tv station. I wont say what network it was...But I never found out who Fonzie was until I went to college. regards swede

    Of course, he was one of the six Marines to put up the small flag on Iwo. Life's photo looked faked, but it wasn't. BTW, the monument in Arlington, VA, is now overlooked by sixty dozen yuppy palaces.

    In fact, I can't understand how there could be one. You are among my favorite reliable sources.
