Succeeding Rob Simmons, he has won re-election goldstars
from Liberals & Conservatives, alike, so far:
"...A good man.", they said.
Stop for a moment, and consider
the Grand Weaving of it all; the burden and
privilege of being President; the
issues and actions that cannot be evaded, and
confronted daily, blessed or cursed.
Half these issues were not even considered
" the business of government",
except in the most ideal sense,
he makes it look like the "Kidz on the Block".

And Homecoming for People.....Jubilation!
I went to a VFW fund-raising dinner for a Veteran of the Iraq war,
with carbon steel legs below both knees, wife and 3 fine little boys!
When it was my turn to meet and greet them ,
I did the polite greetings to the family, but then,
the tears came to my eyes, and I blurted to the wife:
" God Bless you! The day my husband came home from war,
fine and ambitious for our lives, truly,
will always be the happiest day !
I would not have cared if he was
'upside-down and backward' - he was HOME!"
My words to her all came out in a second,
and I blushed and covered my mouth in embarrassment,
and blinked the tears away.
But the wife was instantly thrilled.
She showed that same jubilation and appreciation
in her face and in her heart ,
as I felt not all that long ago...
to have her man home, in fine general health,
and loving her and their boys.
She smiled as big and as true as a smile gets
and she thanked me for what I'd said
and gestured heartily that I'd better NOT be embarrassed.
She did not care, not one jot, that her husband's legs
were now carbon steel!
They carried her man just fine!
He was home and life was good!
Large-scale troop Homecomings !

Airmen MIA From Vietnam War are Identified
The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) announced today that the remains of four U.S. servicemen, missing in action from the Vietnam War, have been identified and will be returned to their families for burial with full military honors.
They are Maj. Barclay B. Young, of Hartford, Conn.; and Senior Master Sgt. James K. Caniford, of Brunswick, Md. The names of the two others are being withheld at the request of their families. All men were U.S. Air Force. Caniford will be buried May 28 in Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C., and Young's burial date is being set by his family.
Remains that could not be individually identified are included in a group which will be buried together in Arlington. Among the group remains is Air Force Lt. Col. Henry P. Brauner of Franklin Park, N.J., whose identification tag was recovered at the crash site.
On March 29, 1972, 14 men were aboard an AC-130A Spectre gunship that took off from Ubon Royal Thai Air Force Base, Thailand, on an armed reconnaissance mission over southern Laos. The aircraft was struck by an enemy surface-to-air missile and crashed. Search and rescue efforts were stopped after a few days due to heavy enemy activity in the area.
In 1986, joint U.S.- Lao People's Democratic Republic teams, lead by the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC), surveyed and excavated the crash site in Savannakhet Province, Laos. The team recovered human remains and other evidence including two identification tags, life support items and aircraft wreckage. From 1986 to 1988, the remains were identified as those of nine men from this crew.
Between 2005 and 2006, joint teams resurveyed the crash site and excavated it twice. The teams found more human remains, personal effects and crew-related equipment. As a result, JPAC identified Young, Caniford and the other crewmen using forensic identification tools, circumstantial evidence, mitochondrial DNA and dental comparisons.

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ.
2. The American G.I.
One died for your soul, the other for your Freedom.
