    Re:Happy Memorial Day

    Not really a holiday we start with "Happy".

    However, God Bless those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

    I once heard someone say nobody gives their lives for their country, itís taken from them. That being said, I hope everyone has a great and safe Memorial Day. Also, hereís a couple Viking related military images I had in my collection.

    This is the Vikings squadron of the 121st A.H.C. during Vietnam:

    And hereís a patch from the Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 225:

    To all those who have served, thank you. We can never say that enough.

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    Re:Happy Memorial Day

    As a 22 year Vet, I say thanks.

    Additionally, I would also like to say thanks to our countries first responders who, like my fellow service members, run to the fight and risk it all, instead of running away from it.

    They, along with our warfighters should be thought of as part of our nations finest as well.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re:Happy Memorial Day

    The Vikings had just completed their Organized Team Activities on Thursday when coach Brad Childress was informed he had an urgent call and one that was far more important than football. Childress' son, Andrew, was on the line.
    Childress' thoughts often focus on son
    You know, I mentioned our first responders in my last post, my apologies go out for forgetting another group, ....the families that are left behind as our valiant men and women go forward into harms way.

    I know my Mom and Dad are happy all 3 of us boys had successfull careers and made it home safe and sound.

    In the end, a big shout out to those who support our troops. We couldn't do it without thier loving support.

    Special Kid and Son
    Coach Childress raised a special son. There aren't a lot of children of millionaires in Afghanistan.
    A comment from a reader in the Chiller article who I beg to differ with. This isn't Vietnam. I see alot of our finest as they move towards thier deployments and they come from all kinds of backgrounds.

    One thing they all have in common. They heard the call to serve and volunteered to do it no matter what thier background.
