Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!



Missing Man Setting

"The Empty Chair"

By Captain Carroll "Lex" Lefon, USN (RET), on December 21st, 2004

"In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture. The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER."

Many Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding Capt. Lefon's Chronicle Of "The Empty Chair."

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS AND OUR BELOVED NATION!



The Star Spangled Banner – Verse Four
(Click)


Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Please let me know by Freepmail if you would like
to be admitted to or released from my music ping list

Only for “REAL” emergencies. Like backed up toilets.

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...hope you’ve made it through the week unscathed. Commutes ok on Friday?

I made it! I’m finally starting to feel like I’ll live. Rough week. Really need this weekend. Possible freezing, so I need to bring in the hoses, and make sure all is well outside.

Thanks, Connie, for the tributes to our troops. *HUGS*

Hope you finished out your week with a nice, easy commute.

My haircutter needs to travel to Oklahoma next week, so my regular Wednesday haircut is tonight.

I am off...back for tunes when I get home.

Good evening, Kathy!

*HUGS*

An easy commute in this morning - a rough commute home. That's the typical Friday pattern here in the Federalplex. What I can't understand, after all these years, is that if the morning commute is so easy, where do all these people come from in the afternoon?

I'm glad to hear you're finally feeling better. I was under the weather last night - did not attend choir and went to bed early. Feeling much better today.

We've gotten down to 40 here - unusual for this early in September. Still, it won't be long before we have to turn the outside water off - I hope I remember to this year - we've had our pipes break more than once due to our forgetfulness.

I hope you have a great - and restful - weekend. Tomorrow afternoon we go up to Mrs. MacNessa's brother's - 25th Anniversary - renewal of vows and celebration. Twenty-five years ago I sang at their wedding. I slipped in the liturgically incorrect song "Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms" as a meditation. I'll sing it again tomorrow as my SIL, Renee, walks down the aisle. I thought that would be a nice touch, and my BIL agrees. Renee has no inkling of any of this, alhough I guess when she sees the mob of cars she'll know something is up.! :)

Good evening, ML!!

***HUGS***



It's great to see you this evening! I hope you can find a way to stay cool! There are many things I can endure, but heat is not one of them! Would a cool bath help?

At age 30, Lou Beethoven was experimenting with the art of the sonata. The Opus 26 sonata had not one movement in genuine sonata format, but he didn’t advertise it that way. This time in the Opus 27 sonatas, he went for truth in advertising. The two sonatas are labeled “Sonata Like a Fantasy”, which indicates that Lou is experimenting freely.

The first piece of this group, the Piano Sonata in E-flat, Op. 27/1, is one long arch of sound with the movements joined by the marking attacca subito, which means “jump into the next movement without stopping”. It starts out with an andante first movement, i.e., walking pace, in 2/2 time. This is a pseudo-theme-and-variations exercise, and the theme is rather stately yet a bit playful at the same time.
Variation #1 plays around the theme and jumps into C Major for the second half.
Variation #2 breaks the theme into pieces.
An episode at 3:29 jumps headlong into C Major, the time signature shifts to 6/8, and the marking to allegro.
At 4:14, he brings back the theme and winds it down gently.

The surprise comes when he segues into the second movement, a scherzo in 3/4, which is marked allegro molto e vivace, very fast and lively. It’s a dark movement in C minor. The trio section oscillates between A-flat and E-flat before returning to the opening theme.

Lou segues into the slow movement in A-flat, 3/4 time, marked adagio con espressione, a marking we’ve seen before. This is a stately and contemplative interlude, a short conversation with God. He trills his way into the next movement...

A rondo finale in 2/4 and E-flat marked allegro vivace, fast and lively. This dance is a warmup for the finale of his Archduke Trio which was to come 15 years later.
At 15:02, he brings back the slow movement in E-flat to help unify the piece and then jumps into a presto coda.
