Day of Remembrance

Today as we remember this day of infamy, we also remember our men and women in uniform. This, for me, meant a day at the 911th Tactical Refueling Wing base for the annual air show. And it was spectacular! There's a reason America's military is #1, and they just showed us a slice of it. While we enjoyed the gigantic cargo and tanker planes opened for civilians to climb aboard and check out, the acrobatics of planes, old and new, showed us just what Amercian airpower could do. From old biplanes, to swift attack helicopters, to Cold War era jets, to modern aircraft it was a reassuring reminder of good old American know-how and ingenuity. The power and maneuverability of the massive C-17 to us is an awesome and inspiring sight, while to our enemies it is the hammerstroke that deals justice round the world. I am a fiercely proud patriot, and staunch supporter of our men and women in the armed services. The fact that I have several family members currently serving just swells my pride in my family, my country, and all that we hold dear. If you know, or see a member of our armed services, please take the time to thank them and show how they have our full support, at home and abroad!
