Hubby joined at the very end of the Vietnam era. We did not get much slack, at least not till we got to Norfolk,  VA. Huge bases there, but everywhere were signs in peoples yards saying ......
Sailors and dogs keep off.
This went on for years.......till the Navy threatened to move the Navy completely out of Norfolk!

GOOD WEDNESDAY, Mar.29th MY FRIENDS!

Had a good trip to Boise last night. Picked up our ceiling fan and light kit. Now hubby has to make an appointment with the electrician to install it, because he has to run electrical wiring waaaaay up there, doing it from a crawl space in the ceiling. Don't really have an attic.
Then we had dinner at Marie Callender's in Boise. Which was good, because we did not want to get stuck getting out of Boise during rush hour!
Now today it is raining and very overcast! Glad I got all my stuff done yesterday when it was sunny and nice.
ANYWHO....hope you all have a great day today.

The 70's were a strange time for America.
Politicians did little to build up the image of our troops.
College Professors were  indoctrinating their students with anti war propaganda.

The youth of America was so caught up in protesting the war that they forgot that it was their peers and friends that were
fighting the war.
I was caught in the middle of all of it as I was a member of the National Guard.
I was treated very different when I was in uniform.
My Unit Commander told us that we were to go straight home from drill and to not go to public placed while in uniform.

I am so glad that America has changed it's attitude toward members of the Armed Forces.
Of course one of the big reasons for the change in attitude is the support from so many of the former soldiers.

I would love to have a copy of this CD. There are several songs listed here that I don't have. I would really enjoy listening to these.

An interesting list with rare tracks, although some are just copies culled from TV shows. I am a little bit uncertain as to # 14 and # 15 what that might actually be (my gut feeling tells me these are also tracks from "JD Sings" and not outtakes from 1970). In any case, though, compiling and selling these is a violation of existing copyright laws, and it actually spoils the chance that Sony (or other record companies) might release such rare takes in the future.

NCIF and MacGyver tonight

So, I'm watchin' NCIF and Bruce McGill is the the guest star. I love watching Bruce in anything he does but I loved him most in MacGyver as 'Jack'. MacGyver's best friend. Maybe!
In NCIS, Bruce played a Vietnam vet attending a reunion. He was to visit the 'Wall' in D.C.
MacGyver's episode was first season and had a Vietnam 'vet' with flying issues.
It stared Key Lenz, another love of mine from 1970.(another story)
The NCIS story had Bruce's character coming home to a heroes welcome. Much deserved! 
If you recall, in the early 1970's, most vets were attacked, spit on and hit by the public.
I was ashamed of this behavior by these people and condoned their actions. You see, my father was a Vietnam vet and I am proud of his service to our country. I was too young to totally understand the political views of our nation, but I understood that if this country was in a fight for freedom, I was behind it 100%!   
I was ashamed of how our vet's were treated(still am) and would kick each and every jerk that desecrated our vets for their actions!
I know this is negative thoughts but I can't help how I feel for all the vets who sacrificed their lives for this nation in helping another nation for it's freedom!   
Just sayin'!

Undercover Angels on BYUTV(Brigham-Young Uni)

I caught this show on this channel BYUTV.

It's about millionaires and billionaires that want to do good for underdeveloped countries.
These people go under cover and make up a story about why they are there.
I like this show but I have a few reservations about the concept. Don't get me wrong, great idea, but it has a time limit, one week. Why? At the end of the week, they reveal who they are and what they are doing there.
The person has to find all the facts in that short time and come up with the best solution the help the community.
The first show I watched went without a hitch with the host getting emotional about the locals plight.
The second show had the politics get in the way, hence the time limit.
I'll keep watching with trepidation. 
Did I say I like this idea?
