In Honor of Veterans Day 2016

November 11th, 2016 No comments

Tired strangers in a broken land
Watching to the west, together we stand
An oddly quiet line, drawn out in sand
Where the world we know, will go insane

Harbor closely now, all our memories
Always hold them fast against raging seas
Somewhere far afield, clocks are counting down
To the blinding fury of our coming storm

Think of me tonight, 
Dream of us as morning light
Finds me here tomorrow
Wishing I were home

It’s now or never there’s nowhere in between
Fighting in this desert hell and coming home again
It’s now or never, there’s no time in between
Dying here in no man’s land and holding you again

Wary avengers, fear the falling dark
And cradle quiet thoughts worlds apart

Remember us tonight
Pray for us as morning light
Cracks the dry horizon
To find us gone

It’s now or never there’s nowhere in between
Fighting in this desert hell and coming home again
It’s now or never, there’s no time in between
Dying here in no man’s land and holding you again

“Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory.”

~George S. Patton

Thank you to all those in uniform who have served, do serve and will serve to protect our nation, our freedoms and our citizens.

At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918:   “The war to end all wars” ended.

Hangar Talk with a Tuskegee Airman

May 22nd, 2013 No comments

My buddy Jake and I flew up to Keller Field in Port Clinton, Ohio (KPCW) last Thursday for lunch at the Tin Goose Diner. As we waited for our food, a gentleman came up to our booth to compliment our ride, N914E — as is often known to happen. It is a great looking Van’s RV-7A that Jake’s dad built in his garage.  We had a very pleasant conversation about the RV and flying. Then Jake & I proceeded to fill our pie holes. It was only on the way out that we learned that gentleman was Dr. Harold Brown, one of only forty living members of the 450 Tuskegee Airmen. What a great honor to meet him and come that close to history.
