A Thanksgiving Wish

May the blessing of a bountiful harvest spread over your homes and keep you from the wolves of hunger,

May the blessings of friendship spread over your lives and keep you from the lions of loneliness,

May the blessings of love spread over your hearts and keep you from the depths of hate,

May your paths always be smooth and level and keep you from the grasping fingers of temptation,

May your life be ever blessed with the love from family that will keep you in riches beyond measure.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Though we are mostly without this year, we must still be ever thankful for that which we do have.

Before I take my first bite of turkey on Thursday, I will raise my glass to toast you all, my shipmates and friends here and gone. And then I will toast to the last Thanksgiving...without benefits.


”It is a stain on this nation's honor that the Department of Veterans Affairs has become a deadlier and more difficult adversary to the American veteran than any they have ever faced on a battlefield."-- VNVets

"The concept that Agent Orange, and its effects, stopped dead in its tracks at the shoreline is simply too illogical, and too ludicrous to accept. What does that say about the Bush Administration and his Department of Veterans Affairs?"--VNVets

"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan--to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." --President Abraham Lincoln

"It follows than as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious."--President George Washington
