    I've not been able to carouse my favorite gun boards for a week or so due to the recent loss of a good man, a Korean War vet (Army 1955-1957) a great friend, and grandfather to my children, and the man who taught me how to survive in this crazy world we live in today.
    My father (81) passed away at the VA hospital in Phoenix on the 1st of March of Pulminary fibrosis.
    I will miss him.

    Rest In Peace dad.

    God bless all who served this great country and who have gone before us, and those who have served, or are serving in our military so that we may live peacefully in this great land.

    I know how you feel Dwe. Lost my Dad on New Years eve. 92 year old Infantry WWII. Liberated the camps, walked out of a bombed building the only one alive, hit by a sniper when the guy next to him took a direct hit in the head, survived cancer, hip replacement, and transfused 4 units of blood when they nicked the artery on his gallbladder surgery. Born on St Pats day he would have been 93. Loved his country his family and never talked about the war until a year ago. Tough as nails and a true Ball Buster. RIP POP

    Condolences DWE, my Dad went home to be with the Lord back in 2006. Lost my Mom in 1989. The memories and stories continue their legacy boldly into the future.

    I sell those polishing rags to you guys as a tribute to my Father. He used to love selling those at gun shows. In a way, I have become him.

    Thoughts and prayers brother. Tough to lose those that you love. Lost my father 20 years ago way too young. Never met his grandkids. damn shame.

    If I can finish up this life being half the man he was....
