There will be no roundup today.
There will be no Shelf post.
Today there will be a tribute to a friend, a member of the family.

This is for an Airman who is now in the wide blue yonder, and always in our hearts.
One of the truest patriots I knew, and one of the best examples of what a man should be.

This is for you, Airman- may you continue to soar...
We love you

Links to two broadcasts in your honor:

Live Broadcast of The Bob Hope Show on D-Day June 6, 1944- especially listen to the airman singing "Off We Go, into the Wild Blue Yonder." (link to VicandSade.net)

Finally: John Wayne's reading of "America, Why I Love Her" (Thanks- link to fiftiesweb.com)

I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception
Oh, I know it's a penny here and a penny there, but look at me. I worked myself up from nothing to a state of extreme poverty.
"I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there's purpose and worth to each and every life." Ronald Reagan

To your "Airman"-

Thank you to you and your family for serving our country.

There are many Americans who appreciate the services of our current and retired military.
With gratitude in our hearts our condolences to the family.
