When your grandfather was epic, but he just didn't know it... #grandparents #grandpa #cool #epicgrandpa #wetbar #drinkingbuddies #greatestgeneration

Me and Lowell after cutting down a tree and I finally got him to smile. Notice I’m drenched and he didn’t break a sweat #greatestgeneration#85stillgoingstrong

Yup. Its like that. Don't tell me that we aren't the greatest country in this world.

Pardon me for a sec, just having a moment of patriotism.

Going on a private tour in the Netherlands and Belgium with our dear friend Colonel Ed Shames - already more than nine years ago - is still one of the most remarkable and memorable times ever for me.
Would have loved to see him again this week but sadly he had to cancel his trip a while back for personal reasons. And that's understandable.
Ed is still hanging tough at the blessed age of 96. "I'm as old as sand", he once joked. I hope he will get at least to age 101 - the number of his airborne unit - in good health! "Boy, that would be something", he said and laughed when I told him that.
During the commemorations this week of the 74th anniversary of Operation Market Garden, my thoughts are also with him, his beloved wife Ida and their family.

USS Saratoga. Believe in Hawaii.

11 days folks!


“Almighty God...
Lead them straight and true;
give strength to their arms,
stoutness to their hearts,
steadfastness in their faith.
They will need Thy blessings.
Their road will be long and hard.
For the enemy is strong.
He may hurl back our forces.
Success may not come with rushing speed,
but we shall return again and again;
and we know that by Thy grace,
and by the righteousness of our cause,
our sons will triumph.”

An album I used to listen to CONSTANTLY! The summer this came out, I remember being on the barricade at @vanswarpedtour and the bass slide at the beginning of “Dismantling Summer” hit and the band was just playing it so hard, and so passionately the stage started shaking!!!

In an instant, the quiet of the night was shattered by the thundering of a low flying, two engine Japanese bomber. Just moments before, Jack had been leaning against the ship’s back railing, bored, and thinking of being back home. Startled by the sudden noise, he looked up, peering directly into the barrel of a Japanese tail gunner’s machine guns. If the gunner squeezed the trigger, Jack would be killed instantly. But, to his surprise, the gunner did not fire. The plane continued past, flying the same low flight path it used to sneak in, until it was out of sight. Gone just as quickly as it had appeared. For years after the war, the image of that machine gun, trained on his face, would haunt Jack’s dreams. Jack Rogers, born in San Diego in 1923, served in New Guinea and the Philippines as an Amphibious Engineer. Jack survived the war and, a talented artist till the end, went to work as a commercial artist, as well as an art instructor at Spokane Falls Community College. Mr. Rogers passed away last year at 94 years old.
A long life worth living! #ww2 #wwii #military #veteran #ww2vet #wwiivet #greatestgeneration #army #war #history #hero #american #spokane #pnw #northidaho #oregon #northidaho

Was great being back in Eerde for the ceremony, commemorating the town's liberation 74 years ago. It's been two years to date since my last visit. So I thought I'd "remake" my picture of two years ago, which I reposted yesterday. Go check it out if you want.

WWI New York class battleship USS Texas docked at the San Jacinto battleground just outside of Houston, Tx. This was the flagship for the D-Day invasion of German occupied Normandy, France during WWII
