Air force, huh? You threw me with that term, as I had no familiarity or first-hand memory of it.

Yeah, if you had something other that C-rations or K-rations...you ate better. And, we spent many a night in fox-holes or underground bunkers. But...occasionally, circumstances improved.


We did have C-rats on deployment and they were a lot better than MREs - the early MREs. I sat in an air conditioned room surrounded by radio equipment and it was so cold we wore our parkas even in the summer. That's the extent of my hardship in the military which was really no hardship at all.

Our chow halls were definitely the best.

No, not my first time away from home, but it definitely/eventually proved quite the shock.

A 'zoomie,' huh Okay.


That's what they called us - AF. We generally had an easier time of it than the others. Much better food and better barracks.

My new avatar was taken a couple of days ago...in early Winter of 1968...just before I headed overseas. It is the only one of me in Dress Blues that I could put my hands on. I was eighteen.


If it was your first time away from home it must've been a shock. For me it was no big deal because I was a zoomie. lol

your opinion of uniforms just lowered my opinion of your opinion


My Dad looked pretty sharp in his. The Navy is a close second. How's that? But still second.

The lovely Sgt. Major is, as it happens, in town with my cousin Mary...but, I'll tell her when she gets home. Unless I forget.

Not necessary, AuntiE, as I already have The Sgt. Major trained fairly well.


Would you say that when she could hear it?

The Southern Poverty Law Center has lost all credibility when it took a hard left turn. They even posted an "Extremist File" on Ben Carson. They only took it down because of the backlash.

You can do better than that. That was very lame. If you want to insult someone be creative. You can use google to find some good ones such as - you are 10 pounds of manure in a one pound bag. There are a lot of good ones.

I don't like the lyrics either and do like your take on the word hallelujah.

There is a Christmas version that IMO is much better by Cloverton.

I've heard about this baby boy
Who's come to earth to bring us joy
And I just want to sing this song to you
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
With every breath I'm singing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

A couple came to Bethlehem
Expecting child, they searched the inn
To find a place for You were coming soon
There was no room for them to stay
So in a manger filled with hay
God's only Son was born, oh Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The shepherds left their flocks by night
To see this baby wrapped in light
A host of angels led them all to You
It was just as the angels said
You'll find Him in a manger bed
Immanuel and Savior, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

A star shown bright up in the east
To Bethlehem, the Wise Men three
Came many miles and journeyed long for You
And to the place at which You were
Their frankincense and gold and myrrh
They gave to You and cried out Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I know You came to rescue me
This baby boy would grow to be
A man and one day die for me and you
My sins would drive the nails in You
That rugged cross was my cross, too
Still every breath You drew was Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

It is from POLITICO as should be apparent from how the word is in all caps in the article. I apologize, I often forget to dumb down posts so the right wing fringe can understand.


You should include links so its not plagiarism. And then people can read the whole thing.
