Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day to all my fellow veterans, those who have served our Great Nation. I will never forget my fellow veterans who gave their all, especially Lt. Cmdr. David Callahan killed while serving in Viet Nam. He was a very good pilot that was killed in a landing accident aboard the USS INTREPID, a Carrier serving in Viet Nam. I can still see his face in my mind after all these years. Worse Lt. McNabb was shot down shortly thereafter and taken as a POW. We lost 2 pilots out of my squadron on the same deployment to Viet Nam. Long time ago, but the pain still exists. I was very happy to have served with both of these pilots. Dave

Dave, thank you for your service to this great nation, and also to those who suffered injuries…especially to the soldiers who payed the ultimate price…

Rueben

You are most welcome. I too appreciate all veterans and the ones we lost. It's not just the ones who died, but all of the wounded warriors that we should be grateful for. War is he'll during and after as many carry the scars both mental and physical. Dave

My father and 2 of his brothers (my uncles) were all in WWII. My dad and (1) uncle were in the USN. Both on destroyers in the South Pacific. The other uncle flew 25 sorties over Germany. They all came home without so much as a scratch. My father always said it was my grandmothers prayers that kept them safe.
