~ 2010 National POW/MIA Recognition Day ~
17 Sept 10


Jerry Wolf, a World War II Army Air Corps pilot and former prisoner of war, shares his story following a Pentagon ceremony Sept. 15, 2010, at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.

Observances of National POW/MIA Recognition Day are held across the country on military installations, ships at sea, state capitols, schools and veterans' facilities. This observance is one of six days throughout the year that Congress has mandated the flying of the National League of Families' POW/MIA flag. The others are Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day. The flag is to be flown at major military installations, national cemeteries, all post offices, VA medical facilities, the World War II Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the official offices of the secretaries of state, defense and veterans affairs, the director of the selective service system and the White House.

They pissed some people off seriously with the manipulation of the yen the other day.
They made a lot of enemy’s all over the financial world, and the desired effect only lasted 24 hours.

Let’s face it. The world is being run by rich cronies at this point in time.

Somebody stuffed it up Japans rump. I don’t know who.
I know that the dems here in America were angry.

So who controls these markets?
Looks like Obama and the dems have some serious financial society behind them. Japan got smacked down.

At ‘em boys, Give ‘er the gun! (Give ‘er the gun now!)*
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off with one helluva roar!**
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!***
Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!

Hi Hi Hi Hi. Today was a no-biking day due to poor air quality (nearby fires ... but not too near!) Please keep my wonderful DH in your thoughts and prayers .... he’s still in Ukraine and really sick with a respiratory bug. (A bunch of guys are sick!) He was started on a strong dose of Zithromax Thursday night (Ukraine time) ~ and we’re still hoping he can come home on Saturday (flying commercial.) Anyway, I’m off to bible study.... be back later! :)

Hmmm Let’s see.

I taught piano to someone who can’t speak English.

Taught “Wild Night” to a 9 Year Old boy.
“Come Together” to a 6 yr old,
And variations on a Mozart theme to a little Girl.

Also saw a LOT of Col. West Signs on Lawns in Pompano Beach!

Woo Hoo!

I will be attending a POW/MIA recognition event tomorrow at the Lebanon VA Medical Center.

I met a gentleman last year that was a POW of the Japanese, and the stories he told me were ... intense.

God bless all of those who were POW’s, and God comfort the families of the MIA’s who are still lost.
