What a great tribute! Thanks for posting it, and thank you for your service NKP_Vet. I want to cry as well when I think of what the traitor in the White House is doing to our military!
I’m proud to say that my dad was in the Army, uncle was in the Navy and my son is a Navy veteran. A second cousin died in Okinawa and a great uncle was MIA in WWI in Belgium. My grandad - an immigrant from Poland, joined the army. I am proud of them and all who serve. We owe you and all who served a debt of gratitude.
My kids’s HS band every year has a concert where they do the anthems and ask the vets in the audience to stand when their anthem is played. Big applause.
49th TFW vet...ping
Bring back the golden eagle and the old flag of the US Army..
388th TFW vet...ping
Husband was 388th TFW, Hill AFB Utah from 1979-1981.
Bookmarked for lurkers, and for me when I need to focus on values that matter. Served in US Army, Corps of Engineers.
In all history there were only two people willing to lay down their lives for freedom, Jesus Christ and the American soldier.

That is when I was there, June 79 till Nov 82. I was in CRS, ECM shop.
woww... it is a small world! I was an ECM Tech stationed at Holloman AFB, Alamogordo, NM...1977-1980
Through my genealogy research I have found documentation showing that a member of my family has served in every American war from the Revolution, to Afghanistan and Iraq. The only wars I cannot find a record for are the Indian Wars. My Civil War ancestors fought for the South.
I am the gg grandson of Duncan Black, 1843 to 1921. He
served with the 15 NC Infantry. Was present for duty at Appomatox when Lee surrendered to Grant. His brother Daniel enlisted with him and died at Bristoe Station, VA on 16 Oct 1863. Bristoe is not far from Manassas. Had another great uncle, Travis Porter, who was with the 3rd NC Infantry. He was captured on the 3rd day of fighting at Gettysburg, taken prisoner to Point Lookout POW Camp, where he died in Dec 1963. All of my ancestors fought for the South. The family on both sides have been in North Carolina since the mid 18th century, when they came over from Scotland and settled in NC. Long live the memory of the brave men, on both sides, who fought and died for they believed in.
Were you ever able to obtain records from the National Archives on them? I had two brothers (I am descended from their sister) who served in the Palmetto Sharpshooters. One served with the Regiment through the entire war and surrendered at Appomatix. His brother was seriously wounded during the Seven Days and sent back to South Carolina to recover. He was found to be unfit for duty in his regiment and he requested that he be detailed to the local sherrif to “apprehend conscripts and desertors.” I have a copy of the paper he sent forward requesting this transfer. The document is interesting because it starts with him, then up through the chain of command, all the way to his division commander. Each commander in his chain signed off on his request, then the document went back down the chain to him. What was interesting to me is that the process hasn’t changed. Several times during my military career I made requests up the chain of command with each commander signing off on the request. The process remains the same; my ancestor used a blank piece of paper and I used some Air Force form, but the process is identical. Didn’t mean to be so long winded but some of the old documents can be fun to read.
Hi Daryl, I was TDY to Holloman, guessing back in 81/82 to learn how to build Harvest Bare shelters for use as avionic shops, then we set up base at the old Wendover base on the Utah / NV border.
A-10s for you?
I worked on F-4 Phantoms.
My husband did several things while we were there. Most of the time commander of EMS then deputy chief of maintenance before he retired. He spent some time TDY in Cold Lake Alberta too. I was a freshman at Weber State at age 37.
Yes, the whole family loved Utah.
