IT IS A GOOD DAY
Band of Brothers Day

You may have served in combat or while preserving peace.
You may have retired out or you may have served for a short time. You may have been a draftee or a volunteer.
You may have served in the Corps, Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or the Merchant Marines, but you served.
You did your job honorably and for that i am proud to call you ‘Brother’.

You may have served during WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Nicaragua, Persian Gulf, Iraq or Afghanistan, but you served, you did not run.You have earned your DD 214 with those words "Honorably Discharged", two of the most noble words in the world.Again I am proud to know each and every one of you.

Today is Band of Brothers' Day; send this to all your brothers, fathers, sons and fellow veterans you know.
Happy Band of Brothers' Day!

To the cool men that have touched my life:
Here's to you!!

us navy- destroyer sailor,(volunteered) 1960-1964 . operated off the taiwan straits off the chinese coast. made it also to hong kong, subic bay, japan, south korea, formosa,and some other choice vacations spots, all free of charge of course.
after our tour was over in that area we were returning to long beach,ca. when we were diverted to the suez canal to proceed to cuba where the confrontation with russia was heating up. a few days later we were diverted back to long beach, apparently, NIKITA KRUSCHEV blinked and pulled the missiles from cuba.

to this day , not too many people realize how close we came to world war 3. if you were too young and did not realize what transpired in the cuban missile crises. then you need to see a movie named " THE MISSILES OF OCTOBER" with william devane as president john f kennedy. kinda long , but it will keep you glued, there was so much behind the scenes actions that occurred with spies, ambassadors into trying to stop the actual confrontation. this movie is not fictional, pretty close to actuallity.

Armiho, you are so right about the Cuban Missile Crisis. When I returned from Vietnam, I served my last year+ in Ft. Lewis, Washington. Ft. Lewis was basic training; I was a supply sergeant. Several of the drill instructors talked to me about being on the beaches of Miami, just waiting on ordrs to invade.
