    I liked this story. I am sure if he asked or would have asked they would have told him no traveling. So he just heads on out.

    My wife's grandfather was L company 501st 82nd airborne and was asked to jump at one of the anniversary jumps a few years ago. He told them no thanks he did want to be there the first time.

    Mine was to, he was an amphibian tank commander of some sort. He never talked about what he saw and went through there. I cannot imagine it myself.

    D-Day Landing Sites Then and Now: Normandy Beaches in 1944 and 70 Years Later

    This shows how much is still the same, and how times have changed. A friend shared this with me.
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    Happiness is contagious; Be a carrier!
