Today in honor of Hartgen and Spitler who died in Aft Steering and my friend Fredrickson who never made it off the Flight Deck on July 27th, 1967 (Fire On The Flight Deck ) … This post is dedicated to you boys. We miss you.
Please take a moment out of your busy day to stop and consider all the freedom’s you currently enjoy and those who gave so much that you might have a rich and better life.
Then lower your head and pray for those who are still not home on this day.
If you know a vet, call him/her and tell them you appreciate their service and sacrifice for the common good of our country.
Better yet, if you can, take them out somewhere and buy them lunch and hug their neck.
