    This is basically just for me. Remembering our Allies. CEF.

    My maternal Grandfather was a Canadian Scotsman. He lied about his age and served as a forward scout in the First World War. He also fought in WWII. He was a mensch. His medals and his revolver are cherished memories. RIP Grandpa Buchanan. I realize this is American, but he loved Amazing Grace on the pipes. I sincerely hope he can hear it.




    Makes trivial squabbles seem petty, doesn't it?

    I am humbled. And appreciative. However if you make me cry one more time today Borneo it will be very difficult to maintain a macho personna. Great video, great words, thanks.

    A Canadian Friend is a Piper. When he plays this, it makes my skin crawl. It is very humbling to me. Very touched by this.

    That photo montage with the bag pipe music SCREAMS what Memorial Day is about! I have a very difficult time having respect for our government that does not take care of our veterans.
    I am one.

    Tears. Went to the funerals of playmate's dads, then older friends during the Viet Nam era, then same age friends from conflict in Granada and Africa, then younger friends, friends of my children, and children of my friends who have been killed in the Middle East. What is WRONG with DC? Just another reason for hating ourselves for doing nothing.
