Rest in Peace Fred Olivi................

I am very proud to say that my grandfather served in the USAF during WWII. The stories he used to tell, the people he knew...

This is him;

If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?

We all owe Thanks to Mr Olivi but also as much to the powers both Military and Political that ALLOWED it to happen. Seems we went from Tactically Correct to Politically Correct. Which works? It seems if we kept with that initial Kick A$$ theory we could save lives in the long run. Get in and get it over with and get back to business. This blast 'em off the earth and give 'em all brand new while our own people don't have jobs,heatlh care,or places to live isn't going to get us too far.
My 2 cents worth.
