Thanks for your service C20!
That's hell when you have a ceiling fan. LOL
I think it was high and tight.
Is the off season over yet?
I think there's one in Zanesville,Oh and also one in Culpeper, Va. that I have actually saw.
I go the long way around!
Thank you all again for your kind words. I went to Nam thinking I was doing my duty as my Dad was a combat infantryman in WWII. I am proud of my service to my country as you can probably tell. I feel so blessed that none of my three sons had to go to war and so far no grandchildren in the service.
War is hell. I can't imagine the worry of the Mothers and Fathers of todays warriors.
I was my honor. So sorry for your loss B3M. I will visit with our Brother each time I return to the Wall.
Yes, March 2014 was my first trip down the pavered path to the Wall. Twice before I had been there with my family over the years but I sat on a bench out by the 3 soldiers monument once and by the books that have the Names on the Wall and their panel locations. My family walked the Wall both times without me. Last March my Nam Brother Chuck called from near Boston and told me to meet him at the Wall. I hadn't saw him in 45 years. I did and we did it together. My wife filmed me finding the first name. Yes, that's Bob, helping out as usual. I had just met him in person that morning. He picked us up at our hotels at 5:30AM.

If you are 30+ years and little or no facial hair. Get your Iron checked at a Doctor's office. Could be Hemochromatosis, sometimes called Iron Overload. Best to rule out this as a cause while you are young.
Kickstands Up! Please take a moment this weekend to think about all those who sacrificed to give us freedom!
God Bless America!
My first trip was canceled 2 years ago when my oldest grandson graduated high school that weekend.
Thank you Hove
I'll be staying in an Arlington Motel with the Purple Heart Riders Association and also my Vietnam Unit Brothers. I also have a friend who lives in Arlington who knows DC area very well. He is having a big backyard barbecue for my 4th of the 39th Inf group Friday afternoon. There will be about twenty of us including spouses and friends.(Not all riding bikes)
Thanks SL. I'm changing oil in the bikes today and starting to pack some things. I'm getting excited just like when the Bucks played in the Natty. LOL
Thank your Dad for his service CPOP. All had a job to do. I was only in 2 years as well.
Thanks B3M. I will stop and say hello to Brother William at 14E and also the 9 names that I served with.
