Back then, I worked on the F-4 Phantom II. The F-100 was affectionately known as the "lead sled." It has always been my personal honor to have been around and saluted pilots as they taxied down the runway before going to full military power as they took off in formation.

God bless you and especially your unwavering service to our Country.

He was a patriot and a hero. So many good men served in that war and were treated terribly by a generation of 60’s radicals, many of whom now infest our national institutions.

To think that John Kerry, who, before Congress, called men such as these murderers, is now the nation’s top diplomat is galling in the extreme. Damn this vile president and shame on the Senators who voted to confirm an appointment so foul.

Thank you Col. Day. Your service to our country will not be forgotten, including the Swiftboat campaign.

Oh that we had military leaders today like him.

How unfortunate that he had to witness McCain turn into the traitor that he has become. It must have bee quite disappointing.

Sorry for the repost but if you want to read a good synopsis of what Bud accomplished with the "Misty FACS" try "Bury Us Upside Down" written by Rick Newman and Don Shepperd. Sadly, there is a "foreword" written by John McCain..you can ignore that part.

One More Roll

We toast our hearty comrades who have fallen from the skies, and were gently caught by God´s own hands to be with him on high.

To dwell among the soaring clouds they´ve known so well before, from victory roll to tail chase at heavens very door.

And as we fly among them there we´re sure to hear their plea, "Take care my friend, watch your six, and do one more roll for me."

Thank you #4 and the other posters. Blessings and gratitude upon Bud, his family and all our vets.

And thank you #12. Though I may disagree with his politics, Sen John McCain III (unlike that liar Sec. Kerry)was a true hero (with the other American POWs) during the Viet Nam War. Their service, suffering and sacrifice should never be diminished or ridiculed.

Sorry numbers 12 and 21 but getting shot down does not make one a war hero. Besides graduating nearly at the bottom of his class in the Naval Academy, he was involved in the loss of several aircraft. One accident was ruled pilot error another was likely also. These incidents would have ended any other pilot´s career. It never hurt McCain that he was the son of a Navy admiral, Chief in the Pacific. Add to that he was caught up and guilty in the Keating Five scandal. Keating always told his lawyers..don´t worry about McCains´s testimony " he is a wimp" .

HAIFA, Israel – Bird-brained terrorists in Lebanon have taken a suspected Israeli spy into custody – an eagle that was outfitted with a transmitter that allowed conservationists to study the raptor’s migratory patterns. In the latest case of Muslim militants seeing a secret agent with wings and a beak, Iranian-backed Hezbollah forces are keeping the eagle under lock and key after it was found by hunters near the town of Ashkout, northeast of Beirut. The bird had a ring around its leg that bore the name ‘Tel Aviv University,’ written in English, as well as a receiver device attached, according to

The 22 children who became ill Thursday after eating lunch at a San Diego school cafeteria made themselves sick on purpose as part of a game, school officials confirmed on Friday. According to San Diego Unified School District spokesman Jack Brandais, a group of students at Audubon Elementary School in the Lomita area were playing a game of “dare” in the cafeteria, urging one another to put different ingredients into their milk to see who could keep the milk down without vomiting. Brandais said the ingredients included hot sauce, salt, pepper, carrots and other vegetables being served at lunch.

Appearing on a local Windy City Sunday morning talk show on the radio station WLSAM, Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said special interests that lobby politicians to influence their opinion on gun control are the real problem. “If there was a special interest influencing police work, I believe that would be called corruption,” McCarthy said.

Clinton, in what may be her final set of testimony as secretary, pointedly challenged Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson when he claimed the department could have "easily" determined what happened that night by interviewing staffers who were evacuated.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.
