Dave, what is defined as a korean war veteran?  or a Vietnam War Veteran?

If you were in the 2nd ACR in Germany during either of those war years, are you a War Veteran or Cold War Veteran?

If anyone has the true definition, (not perception) please tell me and where did you find the information.

I'm not getting notices either, Harry.

Harold, I still haven't cracked that nut yet. I can't figure any way of getting the file size smaller without ruining the clarity of the text and photos. Even then the file size is really big.

Good Saturday Morning Troopers and Oldtimers ... ..

Many thanks for the Birthday wishes. Turned out to be a good day, had Apple Turnovers and Ben & Jerry (Dairy Free) PB & Cookies Ice Cream for an afternoon snack then a Wine Cooler later in the evening. Reached the age of 73!

Cathy is doing fine. Completed the prescription of Ibuprofen (3 days) and still taking it easy on the leg. Rising heat and humidity, and rain, are keeping us from the usual amount of walking per day. She has a follow up DR appt in 2 weeks.

My Brother will be flying in (from Texas) on Tuesday, for a 4 day visit. Looking forward to seeing him.

I do hope that all are doing well. Prayers for any concerns and for news of Wayne.

Enjoy your day, Take care ... ..  Toujours Pret!

Happy Birthday Frank,  You're catching up with me real fast.

Dave, Is there anyway you can put it in as album of the day on the various 2nd AC websites?

I think "DISTURBED" SINGING SOUND OF SILENCE OVER ARLINGTON WAS A BIG TEAR JERKER

I not be getting any notice of postings here.  Gremlins, perhaps?
