USS America: A Tribute




HAPPY VETERANS DAY!
(or Remembrance Day or Armistice Day to others of you)

Okay, this may be a tad jingoistic, but the time I served aboard America were three of my proudest.

  1. I think that, given your time in the military, you're allowed to be a little jingoistic. You didn't serve in my military but still, thank you for your service.

    1. But, I ALWAYS liked serving with your military. Like Canada's, it was always a pleasure.

  2. Thank you for your service, Al. I'll always have a special place in my heart for military members, past and present. It takes a special kind of person to serve.

    1. At first, I wanted a job and chance to see and do neat things. Later on, I felt that it was the right thing to do. No regrets.

  3. Nothing wrong with being jingoistic a bit, especially since you served. Thanks.

    1. I loved every chance i go to work with Canadian air forces. They were great people who taught me what "moose milk" was.

  4. I can see why we didn't go with Remembrance Day, 50% of Americans couldn't spell it without help.

    Happy Veterans Day

    1. I think that's what they call it in Canada.
      Those smarty pants with their hockey, Celine Dion, and spelling.

    1. Not sure why, but I was all day.
      Plus, my uniform still fits. So there's THAT.

  7. My love and pride for/of you are immense.
    Incidentally I had to look up "jingoistic." Here's what I found "the practice of jingoes" and "bellicose chavinism." Sometimes I wonder about this Webster fellow.

    1. I once had a nun accuse me of having a "scatological" sense of humor. Since I didn't know what that meant, I had to look it up. To spare you...in essence it means "pertaining to excrement."
      I think I was offended.
