Happy 4th of July to my Fellow Americans!

Recommended Posts

Enjoy the 4th everyone. I hope you get to see some fireworks, BBQ a hot dog and watch some baseball or hit the pool. 

 

:salute:

You too Jason!  I’m working out of town today on a farm owned by a WWII veteran. He’s got some great stories. He was infantry in the armored division in France and Germany from 44’ until the end of the war. He told me about dogfights he seen and getting bombed and strafed by the Luftwaffe. He’ll be 93 this month and is on a tractor raking hay as I’m writing this :biggrin:  I thought I’d share that with you guys. Happy 4th!!!

Just came back from our local July 4th parade - fire trucks and cheesy floats raining candy. Aah, it doesn't get any better than that.

And it's one of few days when it's OK to start drinking beer before noon. ;)

Very cool. Stories like his are gold.  You're lucky to have the chance to hear them in person.  When you guys finish up for the day, you ought to ask if you can record a story of 2 while you guys are relaxing with some cold ice tea, if he hasn't already done something like that.  Several museums would love to have that video or audio.

Either way, enjoy your time with him, and tell him thanks for what he went through, from another grateful citizen.

Turns out - 4.7 centered in Ridgecrest - quite a ways away - Happy 4th!

Happy Fourth. 

 

It was good to see your president acknowledge the importance of air power in the Revolutionary War 🤣

Well, Jean-Piere Blanchard didn't demonstrate a balloon on the American continent until 1793, so that's not exactly feasible...

OMG yes, when he said that I thought "Wait, are they restarting serial production of the M4A?" Awesome!

Maybe he was thinking about the latest Tank Battle update?
