    Good post! It makes me sad thinking about how the greatest generation is leaving us Noe and how tough those guys really were.

    Jim, thanks for passing that along. With few exceptions, every currently serving person and veteran I've met will go very far out of their way to honor someone like Bud. More here.

    If any of you know a vet that would like to spend some time with active duty personnel, don't hesitate to ask. They'll appreciate the opportunity, and find a way to make it happen. If you don't know where to start, stop by a recruiting station and they should be able to point you in the right direction.
