“Our Greatest Generation”
Today marks Memorial Day here in the United States. It is a day that many treat as the unofficial start of summer, but it really has much more meaning than that. These two veterans are survivors of the bombing of Pearl Harbor from World War II—Our Greatest Generation. These two like millions of others have and are sacrificing their freedoms for the sake of ours in the United States. Rarely are you able to say “Thank You” to these real heros—as we do not interact with them on a daily basis like we do with those in stores, restaurants and etc.—but they need our thanks for what the have done. Make sure to say “Thank You” the next time you see a soldier, as every day they are on duty.
Happy Memorial Day everyone!
“A Plane Self Portrait”
This week is Armed Forces Week throughout the United States. In Milwaukee, it was hosted at the Air National Guard’s 128th Air Refueling Wing and Mitchell International Airport. In brief, it was a mini fly-in where on display were airplanes old and new. To name a few, there was a KC-135 Air Refueler, C-5 Galaxy, KC-10, C-130 Cargo Planes, RC-135 Recon/Communications Aircraft, a P-51 Mustang, Gruman Seabee, F-5E, F-16, as well as other aircraft. This photo was taken of the front of a Canadian RAF Vintage Trainer. If you look close, you can see a few of the aircraft I mentioned in the reflection.
