thank you for the greetings, things are still pretty wonky trying to do this so just bear with me and My energy level is low but I know this is good to bring my brain back online so I'll keep posting

Thanks Nimbus. The whole reset of the SA website where all the pages were wiped clean really had me at a low point. The last six months of it's life I had been just stomping on the gas pedal tryi

I was in Jr High School. It was announced over the PA. Our teacher was sobbing. The school sent us all home. The harsh reality of it changed my view of the world forever. 

My wife was born three weeks prior, her older brothers told her later that they shot him because she was born. They don't talk much.

I had my younger brother convinced he was adopted and if he didn’t do what I said he could get sent back. Things went great for a while till he mentioned it to Mom……..she was…..irritated……

3 times I saw my dad cry.  The Kennedy assassination, the night my little sister died at 15, and the day I left for Marine Corp boot camp.

Those were all tough moments…….I can see it. 

I was too young to understand the Kennedy tears, too shocked to process the tears of the loss of my little sister and too uncertain of my new life going forward... Bottom row left...

I think we all, if we’re old enough, have clear memories of exactly where we were when certain historical events occurred. My 3 are the Kennedy Assassination, Challenger disaster, and 9/11.

I will always remember the first time I heard "Rock Lobster" by the B-52s.

Kennedy assassination - Sitting on the couch as a 5 year old, watching my mother cry for the 1st time while she was doing the ironing.

Challenger - In the "headend" (ie: server room) of the cable company I was an engineer for

9/11 - Heard about the 1st plane on my way to my office. Stopped at the local watering hole for coffee & TV and saw the 2nd plane. Went home after that.

All never to be forgotten.

I see a hole in your argument!

I have the same 3.

Can't remember where I was for RFK, MLK or Kent State.

"Sultans of Swing"  ... about to step onto a commuter bus, car radio playing it parked nearby. I stopped and listened to the first half of the song, then got on the next bus and worked that day with that song in my head and wondering who the band was.

Can't believe it was that long ago.

That will always be a favorite. Knopfler and a guitar are difficult to best.

Daughter breaking military bearing during USAF graduation

Love this! You must be proud!

One of my best memories was attending my nephew’s graduation from Annapolis. I thought we could have reached up and touched the Blue Angels as they flew over the stadium. Been to more than a few college graduations, but the military ceremonies are unlike any others.
