Aunt Jen Posted May 21, 2015 Share Posted May 21, 2015 The military commercial thread got me thinking.. It takes all of us. It takes people in all the Armed Services, officers, enlisted. Long-timers, short-timers. It takes people to build infrastructure so our economy can work, fire-breathing dragons to ram-rod industry, nurses to care for us, people to sell us chilidogs at Dodger games. It takes people who argue, for it's through struggle that we find out American way. We're all in this together. My husband, Painless http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_F_Ware_Jralways felt a little guilty that he was never actually in the military. On Veteran's Day, in church, I could stand (Navy), but he could not---while my time in was si short compared to his 34 years in the SkunkWorks, Lockheed. In 1941, he had just taken his job at Lockheed, before Pearl Harbor. During WW-II, he flight test engineered Hudson Bombers and P-38s. Over time he did such ad all the Connie variants---some data of which we used at the NSA----C-130 Hercules, f-104 Starfigjter, TWO AIR FORCE ONEs, the U-2, and SR-71--flight tested at Area 51. I am so proud if him I could bust--a humble man, who couldn't stand on Veteran's Day in church. I just wanted to say: it takes all of us, to all of us.
