    Well add the Civil War and over 600,000 KIA when you add up both sides. And many think the virus times are so very bad. Imagine being a rebel that survived the war... That war was just plain nasty on all accounts but a hundred times worse ifin you and your family and kin folk were on the losing side. No anesthesia for combat wound surgery, there was a reason doctors were called "Saw Blades". To quote that preacher in John Wayne's "The ALAMO", "All a man gets is a time to live and a place to die". Semper-Fidelis.

    Well I have read all the posts for this thread now for my response. After paying my respects and prayers for my squad leader and a few other MARINES/GRUNTS that paid the ultimate price in 1968 Vietnam and then to finish with a salute shot to them.

    I always eat well on holidays, especially Memorial Day. I am always reminded of C-Rats on certain days, it's an unending payback of food taste.

    So I have already watched "Patton" and the newer version of "Midway" which I really liked. I'm gonna watch some of these(pictured) films tonight. For sure the "Evening Parade" as it has the "Silent Drill Team" and both the USMC Band and USMC Drum and Bugle Corps. No movie about war ever has it all correct but there's always something that triggers memories in me when it comes to Vietnam movies. Siege is one of my favs. FMJ is great but I just don't relate with HUE and city fightin' as our unit was always out in the jungle just snoopin' and poopin'. Platoon is great until you have that in house fightin'. That crap would never happen in our unit. You do what your squad leader or platoon seargent told you to...PERIOD.

    Well where I live there aren't any mosquitos, I haven't been bitten by one in at least 35 years. There really isn't any flies either but that's just because of the nice area up in the hills and a dead end circle. The latter just prevents more lame-o cruisers and low lifes from bothering with the area and throwing out garbadge and old food.

    I live at the very start of foothills leading to the Santa Cruz Mountain Range around 23 miles south of San Francisco and maybe 30 miles west to the ocean. There are bees, butterflies, and ants in the area.

    Well you got a job, your making a lot of smackeroos so you have some more money for filet-mignons, and some fine 15 year plus aged scotch. Heck maybe you could even buy one of those Blackstone outdoor pizza ovens as shown on this thread.
