Thanks very much, Kathy!

*HUGS*

Sorry for my extended absence - I've been hobnobbing with some Marines on another forum.

Sorry your payroll was such an ordeal - I figured that a Wednesday holiday would not be tasty for you. Put your feet up and have a nice glass of wine!

THE SOLDIER’S CODE




Gen Dwight D. Eisenhower addresses troops of the 101st Airborne Division 5Jun1944 prior to D-Day Normandy

The Soldier’s Code

1) I am an American fighting man. I serve in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

2) I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender my men while they still have the means to resist.

3) If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

4) If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me, and will back them up in every way.

5) When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am bound to give only name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies, or harmful to their cause.

6) I will never forget that I am an American fighting man, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, August, 1955.

Workday was not too bad - not very productive, though. The infection is responding to meds. The arthritis is spreading. :(

The heat is the worst I have ever encountered outside the Orient. 'Nam was incredibly hot - in the elephant grass the temps went up into the 130's - air temp outside in the high 90's.

On our flight out to Taiwan in 1963, (my father was assigned to a medical research unit there) we hit the deck at Agana, Guam at about noon - over 100 and humid. I went into the men's room to shave and I was sweating profusely through the exercise. No relief until we got back on the plane. Then we hit Clark AFB - hot as Hades until the sky opened, but little relief - it was like being in a steam bath.

This evening at 9:00 p.m., I was all but swooning on the short walk from the van to my house. We're not used to this kind of heat here. We're praying for snow!

Must retire – the 0500 Reveille approaches relentlessly.

The Bugler, his grim visage replete with an evil sneer, already mounts the parapet.

Do poor Tom some charity, whom the foul fiend vexes!




Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!

Hubby wanted to have it ready yesterday, but it needed more
cement to anchor it than he had and took longer to dry.

It does look very nice flying high like that! :)

Yeah, I always get to see them from my location but it's much better close up even if you have to sit in the rain. My son came down for a while but he was in no shape or disposition to go over to Moku Olu to watch.

MORE FOUR TOPS HISTORY:

The band initially continued as a three-piece under the name The Tops, before Theo Peoples (formerly of The Temptations) was recruited as the new fourth member. Peoples eventually took over the role of lead singer when Stubbs suffered a stroke in 2000 with his position assumed by Ronnie McNeir. On July 1, 2005, Benson died of lung cancer with Payton’s son Roquel Payton replacing him. Levi Stubbs died on October 17, 2008. Fakir, McNeir, Payton, and Harold “Spike” Bonhart, who replaced Peoples in 2011, are still performing together as the Four Tops. Fakir is now the only surviving founding member of the original group.

MORE FOUR TOPS HISTORY:

All four members of the group began their careers together while they were high school students in Detroit. At the insistence of their friends, Pershing High students Levi Stubbs and Abdul “Duke” Fakir performed with Renaldo “Obie” Benson and Lawrence Payton from Northern High at a local birthday party. The quartet decided to remain together, and christened themselves The Four Aims. With the help of Payton’s songwriter cousin Roquel Davis, The Aims signed to Chess Records in 1956, changing their name to Four Tops to avoid confusion with The Ames Brothers.

FOUR TOPS HISTORY:

During their early Motown years, the Four Tops recorded jazz standards for the company’s Workshop label. In addition, they filled in time by singing backup on Motown singles such as The Supremes’ “Run, Run, Run.” The Tops also did backing vocals for the group who is known as the equivalent to The Four Tops (Like The Supremes are known as the equivalent to The Temptations), Martha Reeves & The Vandellas on their 1966 hit “My Baby Loves Me”.

FOUR TOPS HISTORY:

In 1964, Motown’s main songwriting/production team of Holland-Dozier-Holland created a complete instrumental track without any idea of what to do with it. They decided to craft the song as a more mainstream pop song for the Four Tops, and proceeded to create “Baby I Need Your Loving” from the lyric-less instrumental track. Upon its mid-1964 release, “Baby I Need Your Loving” made it to #11 on the United States Billboard pop charts. However, the song proved to be much more popular on trend-setting radio stations in key U.S. markets; Baby I Need Your Loving was a strong top 10 hit on both WMCA in New York, and WKNR in Detroit—stations watched by radio people all over the country because these stations broke new artists and songs. After the single’s success The Tops were pulled away from their jazz material and began recording more material in the vein of “Baby I Need Your Loving.”

FOUR TOPS HISTORY:

After scoring their first #1 hit, the often-recorded and revived “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)” in June 1965, the Four Tops began a long series of successful hit singles. Among the first wave of these hits were the Top 10 “It’s the Same Old Song”, “Something About You”, “Shake Me, Wake Me (When It’s Over)”, and “Loving You is Sweeter Than Ever”. Four Tops records often represented the epitome of the Motown Sound: simple distinctive melodies and rhymes, call-and-response lyrics, and the musical contributions of The Funk Brothers.

FOUR TOPS HISTORY:

August 1966 brought the release of the Four Tops’ all-time biggest hit, and one of the most popular Motown songs ever: “Reach Out I’ll Be There”, which hit #1 on the U.S. pop charts[2] and soon became The Tops’ signature song. It was almost immediately followed by the similar sounding “Standing in the Shadows of Love”; its depictions of heartbreak reflected the polar opposite of the optimism expressed in “Reach Out”. It was another Top 10 hit for the Tops.
