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)
