Another flyer who went upstairs http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif .

There are fewer than 200 living World War I veterans in USA, I fear the day the same will occur with WWII veterans. The only one I personally know died some years ago.

When I hear of the passing of one of these great men it moves me not to sorrow but to thought. I think of what they went through, how they suffered, and how it has shaped our world today. How much different would our lives be without their sacrifice? I am thankfull that Col. Morgan lived to see old age, but ever mindfull of the millions who did not. And so to Col. Morgan, and all who have passed, you have my greatest respect and admiration. I salute you.

Anything I can say pales in comparison to the deeds he and his fellow veterans did. I salute him and all.
