CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (Jan. 14, 2008) The first major snowfall of the New Year blankets the USS Constitution. Despite the weather "Old Ironsides," remained open for free public tours. At 210 years-old, USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, manned by 67 active-duty United States Sailors and visited by nearly half a million visitors annually.

ROCKUMENTARY: FEBRUARY 22, 1964

Where were you? I was a junior at a third-rate Catholic prep school in New Jersey that had pretensions to being first-rate. Our principal was a priest who was flamboyantly effeminate; we called him “Mabel” behind his back. The vice principal, nicknamed “Pudge”, was a priest from Brooklyn who believed in JFK, LBJ, FDR – and GOD, in that order.

So what were you up to?

Cue the Rockumentary theme!

San Remo Golden Strings: “Festival Time”

This band was simply Motown’s Funk Brothers backed with pickup musicians from the Detroit Symphony.

#10 – Diane Renay: “Navy Blue”

Bob Crewe had written “Silhouettes” for the Rays in the Fifties and had rung the cash register when he and bass man Bob Gaudio produced and wrote for the Four Seasons. This song was written by Crewe and Eddie Rambeau, who would have a hit of his own a year later. I talked to Joe Labriscia of the Four Seasons in 1971 about Crewe’s contributions to recording a song. He said that Crewe would walk in, make about 30 seconds worth of suggestions, and then walk out. But Crewe’s suggestions were exactly what the situation required. He was a professional.

This was Diane Renay’s only hit. She was just 17.

Capt. Robert H. Dunlap, USMCR (MOH)

From Today in U.S. Military History:

20 & 21 February 1945 – Iwo Jima, Volcano Islands, Japan

Citation: "For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as commanding officer of Company C, 1st Battalion, 26th Marines, 5th Marine Division, in action against enemy Japanese forces during the seizure of Iwo Jima in the Volcano Islands, on 20 and 21 February, 1945. Defying uninterrupted blasts of Japanese artillery, mortar, rifle and machinegun fire, Capt. Dunlap led his troops in a determined advance from low ground uphill toward the steep cliffs from which the enemy poured a devastating rain of shrapnel and bullets, steadily inching forward until the tremendous volume of enemy fire from the caves located high to his front temporarily halted his progress. Determined not to yield, he crawled alone approximately 200 yards forward of his front lines, took observation at the base of the cliff 50 yards from Japanese lines, located the enemy gun positions and returned to his own lines where he relayed the vital information to supporting artillery and naval gunfire units. Persistently disregarding his own personal safety, he then placed himself in an exposed vantage point to direct more accurately the supporting fire and, working without respite for 2 days and 2 nights under constant enemy fire, skillfully directed a smashing bombardment against the almost impregnable Japanese positions despite numerous obstacles and heavy Marine casualties. A brilliant leader, Capt. Dunlap inspired his men to heroic efforts during this critical phase of the battle and by his cool decision, indomitable fighting spirit, and daring tactics in the face of fanatic opposition greatly accelerated the final decisive defeat of Japanese countermeasures in his sector and materially furthered the continued advance of his company. His great personal valor and gallant spirit of self-sacrifice throughout the bitter hostilities reflect the highest credit upon Capt. Dunlap and the U.S. Naval Service. "

Sgt. Ross F. Gray, USMCR (MOH)

From Today in U.S. Military History:

21 February 1945 – Iwo Jima, Volcano Islands, Japan

Citation: " For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as a Platoon Sergeant attached to Company A, 1st Battalion, 25th Marines, 4th Marine Division, in action against enemy Japanese forces on Iwo Jima, Volcano Islands, 21 February 1945. Shrewdly gauging the tactical situation when his platoon was held up by a sudden barrage of hostile grenades while advancing toward the high ground northeast of Airfield No. 1, Sgt. Gray promptly organized the withdrawal of his men from enemy grenade range, quickly moved forward alone to reconnoiter and discovered a heavily mined area extending along the front of a strong network of emplacements joined by covered trenches. Although assailed by furious gunfire, he cleared a path leading through the minefield to one of the fortifications, then returned to the platoon position and, informing his leader of the serious situation, volunteered to initiate an attack under cover of 3 fellow marines. Alone and unarmed but carrying a huge satchel charge, he crept up on the Japanese emplacement, boldly hurled the short-fused explosive and sealed the entrance. Instantly taken under machinegun fire from a second entrance to the same position, he unhesitatingly braved the increasingly vicious fusillades to crawl back for another charge, returned to his objective and blasted the second opening, thereby demolishing the position. Repeatedly covering the ground between the savagely defended enemy fortifications and his platoon area, he systematically approached, attacked and withdrew under blanketing fire to destroy a total of 6 Japanese positions, more than 25 troops and a quantity of vital ordnance gear and ammunition. Stouthearted and indomitable, Sgt. Gray had single-handedly overcome a strong enemy garrison and had completely disarmed a large minefield before finally rejoining his unit. By his great personal valor, daring tactics and tenacious perseverance in the face of extreme peril, he had contributed materially to the fulfillment of his company mission. His gallant conduct throughout enhanced and sustained the highest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service."

Capt. Joseph J. McCarthy, USMCR (MOH)

From Today in U.S. Military History:

21 February 1945 – Iwo Jima, Volcano Islands, Japan

Citation: "For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as commanding officer of a rifle company attached to the 2d Battalion, 24th Marines, 4th Marine Division, in action against enemy Japanese forces during the seizure of Iwo Jima, Volcano Islands, on 21 February 1945. Determined to break through the enemy’s cross-island defenses, Capt. McCarthy acted on his own initiative when his company advance was held up by uninterrupted Japanese rifle, machinegun, and high-velocity 47mm. fire during the approach to Motoyama Airfield No. 2. Quickly organizing a demolitions and flamethrower team to accompany his picked rifle squad, he fearlessly led the way across 75 yards of fire-swept ground, charged a heavily fortified pillbox on the ridge of the front and, personally hurling hand grenades into the emplacement as he directed the combined operations of his small assault group, completely destroyed the hostile installation. Spotting 2 Japanese soldiers attempting an escape from the shattered pillbox, he boldly stood upright in full view of the enemy and dispatched both troops before advancing to a second emplacement under greatly intensified fire and then blasted the strong fortifications with a well-planned demolitions attack. Subsequently entering the ruins, he found a Japanese taking aim at 1 of our men and, with alert presence of mind, jumped the enemy, disarmed and shot him with his own weapon. Then, intent on smashing through the narrow breach, he rallied the remainder of his company and pressed a full attack with furious aggressiveness until he had neutralized all resistance and captured the ridge. An inspiring leader and indomitable fighter, Capt. McCarthy consistently disregarded all personal danger during the fierce conflict and, by his brilliant professional skill, daring tactics, and tenacious perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds, contributed materially to the success of his division’s operations against this savagely defended outpost of the Japanese Empire. His cool decision and outstanding valor reflect the highest credit upon Capt. McCarthy and enhance the finest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service."

To: AZamericonnie; All
For those of you playing along at home, a couple of weeks ago I featured John Mayall. Among the players who drifted through his Bluesbreakers are a few of the performers I'm featuring this weekend. Mick Fleetwood, John McVie and Peter Green were all Bluesbreakers alumni and the trio formed their own unit in 1967. Tonight I feature Fleetwood Mac, named for drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie. The band was founded by guitarist Peter Green who used his Bluesbreakers bandmates names to label and brand the group and for a while at least with Jeremy Spencer and Danny Kirwan they were one of England's premier blues acts until Green left to pursue a solo career.

Kirwan and Spencer shared guitar duties for awhile and John's then-wife, Christine came aboard on keyboards and vocals. Fleetwood then invited American guitarist Bob Welch to join the band without an audition to give them better exposure in the US and with Green's heavy blues format fading, the band became more pop oriented under Welch's direction. The Kirwan / Welch era established the band on the world's music charts and led to big success. Kirwan and Welch didn't always see eye-to-eye and it eventually led to the end of that period, but, they always held high respect for each other as well as being devotes of Peter Green.

Danny Kirwan left the band in 1972 due to artistic differences and an admitted alcohol problem leaving Bob Welch in the driver's seat as lead guitarist and principal songwriter, but in 1974, Bob introduced the band to guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and vocalist Stevie Nicks, both accomplished songwriters and as Welch departed for his own solo career, Fleetwood Mac began it's third, final and most successful incarnation with the newcomers. Over the years musicians the likes of Bob Weston, Dave Walker, Billy Burnette, Rick Vito, Bekka Bramlett and Dave Mason have come and gone, but the Buckingham/Nicks/Fleetwood/McVie core has remained through the turbulence of divorce, affairs and sometimes excessive drug use and infighting.

Recently I haven't been able to help noticing a resurgence in interest in the band. Most notable was an episode of "The Americans" late last season which heavily featured Fleetwood Mac songs. The show is about Soviet sleeper agents living as a family in the US during the Cold War and Fleetwood Mac's "Tusk" brought the 80's back vividly as the spies went about their covert deeds. Then came a new season of "American Horror Story" called "Coven" about a tribe of witches living in a New Orleans "finishing school". One of the witches who bears an uncanny resemblance to a young Stevie Nicks was enchanted by Stevie's music and for several weeks there was a steady diet of Stevie songs in the soundtrack. Eventfully the aging White witch herself made cameo appearances joining the all-star cast which includes Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett (as voodoo queen Marie Laveau). The most recent episode featured Stevie singing "The Seven Wonders" - which turns out to be the initiation ritual for the young witches in training. But no more spoilers! Lets get rockin' as I spin songs from 5 decades of Fleetwood Mac.


Big Love

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."
