    I gotta bump this.

    It's too amazingly informative to be missed on Memorial Day.

    I posted this last year around Memorial Day.

    Only one person (Ross) acknowledged it since then. I find that hard to believe.

    Check it out guys,

    I'm glad you guys like it.

    It really works great. It's so easy to find anyone you look for.

    We lost a lot of great people back then, just like in most other wars.

    Bless them all!

    Bear

    PS: I think when I posted it last year it got by people too fast. Once a thread gets off the first page, it sometimes disappears.

    In the excitement of the holiday weekend it is easy to forget why it is a holiday

    Here it is again!

    It works so easy!

    Just click on this link.

    Then click on your state.

    Scroll down to your town, or any town you want to check.

    then click on the name....... it should show you a picture of the fallen Hero, or at least his bio and medals.

    Thanks to Bear and to all of the Vets here on this site. For those of us fortunate enough to live in a town with folks in the military, here are a couple of things that Mrs. Scar and I do in order to say thanks

    In the grocery store I have a checker that knows me and if I am behind a military family I give her the hi sign and when she is finished ringing up the groceries, she tells them that the order has been paid for by someone wanting to thank them for their service.  When my turn comes she just adds the order to my bill

    In a restaurant, if we see a soldier we ask the waitress to give us the check and not to tell them who did it.

    This has been a very rewarding for us. We also are fortunate because our grocery stores have collections to support our bases on a regular basis.

    Again thanks to all of our vets

    Thanks Bear.  I am another who visits this site occasionally.  So far I have been lucky enough not to find the name of a close friend or buddy.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I'm not quite that lucky in this instance. I lost a bunch of buddies while I was there. Also a couple of classmates, including a best friend who was a squad leader. His whole squad was MIA for about 2 weeks. They were all found to have been ambushed.
