Default Mets Yankees Game March 10th

My wife's Uncle was honored during the 7th inning Stretch this past Saturday, he is a 93 year old WW II veteran who served under General George S. Patton. It was great to see him honored along with his brothers also

Thats awesome! My uncle served in wwII too. He had the botom part of his leg blown off BUT, his buddy picked him up and the leg, and ran him to safty. Long story short, that guy saved my uncles life and his leg!

Hes 95 now

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

I have a neighbor who is one of the last living senior officers from the war. He survived a kamikaze attack that killed everyone else on the bridge except for him; he survived because his helmet protected him from the shrapnel. The other day I was talking to him and I noticed he was missing part of a couple fingers, so I asked him if that was related to the kamikaze. He said “No, that was the Battle of the Yamaha!”; Yamaha being the company that manufactured his lawnmower. He’ll be 99 this summer.
