Being over a hundred years old, he had discovered people wanted to talk to him, especially now; everyone knowing well his time was near. He honored and remembered the many friends who had suffered from Agent Orange or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Such a small plaque, he thought, to honor those countless thousands. Their deepest wounds unhealed-with pitiless fates impatiently lying in wait to savage minds and bodies and rot away their spirits. Indeed, too many had later died as a result of their service-a pain without measure. His eyes were drawn skyward, following a nurse’s gaze ever searching for the dust-off chopper that would never come, and sighed in resignation that salvation was not upon the wind that day. If you bump into an Old Geezer On the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Geezer on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady.. Old Geezers trust strangers and are courtly to women. Old Geezers hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection. Old Geezers get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don’t like any filth on TV or in movies or in e-mails.
He could just see the length of The Wall, from the beginning to end of the war. Without realizing it, he sat at attention…as some forgotten sergeant had instilled in him eons ago, and with a start was momentarily angered when someone broke his thoughts and stuck a tissue in his hand. He instantly resented their assumption he would once more blubber like a woman. Maybe it would be different this time-but they knew him too well. And then he sat alone at the edge of the grass in the park-like setting…his eyes brushing The Wall’s black granite…feeling the presence…drawing strength and a comforting peace that it always gave so freely. TAPS often takes dogs to locations within the community as an opportunity to socialize the animals and bring visibility to adoptable pets. Volunteers can be assigned a variety of tasks during off-site events from helping to set up the events to cleaning up from the events after they are over.
Now they are looking to purchase and installed plaques for the gates, and this is where they need our help. Our goal is to raise $30,000 to buy and install service emblems on the gates at the entrance of the cemetery. Any extra money raised will be used for continued beautification of the cemetery in honor of our veterans. The president had come to say goodbye and place a memory at The Wall. He stood reverently, filled with gratitude, reading a few names, touching one here and there. We haven’t forgotten the price that was paid…we will remember your sacrifice…the cost of freedom… He paused for one last look at The Wall, and thought how fitting a place was this hallowed ground for the last man standing to have crossed-over from. His eyes swept the length of The Wall and filled with mist…I just want to thank you, one last time…welcome home sons…welcome home. The chapter gave a donation to the Wiregrass Honor Flight Committee for the flight or our WWII Veterans to the Memorial in Washington. The idea originated with a group of veterans who are motorcycle riders and hold an annual Veterans Day poker run and the Vietnam Veterans #373 based in Clayhatchee.

They are currently looking to place an emblem for each branch of the armed services on each side of the cemetery entrance gate. The gate is a key focal point upon entering the cemetery and was built to receive these plaques, but is currently without them because of the the cost. They paused briefly at the southwest entrance, and he could see The Wall in enfilade and just make out the black granite of the monument’s center where it Veda and pointed toward the Washington Monument. Only a decade ago there were still a few misty eyed old men looking for a buddy’s names…but no longer. He savored a quiet melancholy moment as his helpers chatted with media covering his birthday visit to The Wall.

How quickly The Wall grew in height with names overwhelming and never ending, until suddenly his chair was swiveled facing center. The Wall somehow seemed taller than he remembered. They waited as he knew they would, while his eyes found the name that was more than just a name to him. He thought, You’re still here…in my place…just as you have been all these many decades. He bowed his head slightly and they eased him back to lawn’s edge. The name blurred with an old man’s vision as he remembered that day for the countless time and wondered anew why he made it home, and they had not. With a nod, they rolled him forward slowly down the pathway, and in his wake he listened to the trailing sounds of shuffling feet, like a herd of recruits rote-stepping across a bridge. How once we marched like giants down trails of darkness…and like brothers fought till there was light. He felt like a point man leading a squad as he followed the list of flowing names like markers along the road of life. He was at The Wall and thrilled, and nothing could spoil this day, even though he still didn’t know what the media wanted from him, or expected him to say. Maybe they want me to do something dramatic, like croak, in time for the five o’clock follies, he grinned. Screw´em…I’m gonna live forever-or maybe not, he thought. He felt tired and exhausted from this gusty day, this week…this life…with its ever-present aches. He felt like a grumpy, gnarly, barkless old tangled tree too many bears had itched against. But he was mostly just grumpy-tired of being tired. We also gave our yearly scholarship to an Iraq Veteran who was the son of a Vietnam Veteran.

You’ll find similarities between the types of bingo games online and in-person. Online games are likely to have many more types available than at a bingo hall. That’s because bingo games online are programmed for many eventualities. For in-person bingo, you’re dependent on the knowledge of the emcee at the bingo hall. If you want to play online, you do need to make sure that you find a legitimate website to play. Perhaps he had dozed, he thought to himself…but they were all so alive, so real! He had never returned to Vietnam, as many veterans had, and thought…truth is…I’ve never felt closer to it all than right here at The Wall. Another moment and he envisioned parked F-4 Phantoms, wing tip to wing tip, for more than a mile, and a string of Hueys thumping overhead like enraged geese…a door-gunner waved in passing. Air crews scurried about the flight line, and he could feel the ground quake with a distant B-52 strike. Men were joking and laughing as they boarded the Freedom Bird home…as silver canisters were silently loaded by forklift into a cargo bay. And then he could feel his muscles straining in calisthenics amidst thousands of others at boot camp. Mind drifting…his friend was suddenly dead and flown away into the night…tape across a locker…and another scar across his own heart. His eyes swept the sky in denial, searching for shadows of aircraft numerous as stars, and trying to paint the memory with a face. There are many types of bingo games and patterns that make bingo an exciting game that you can play for hours. Now that you know what these bingo games are, you can start to play and win.

The main difference between these types of games is the number of balls that are played. The number of balls could increase or decrease your chance of winning. The fewer balls in play, the more likely you are to win. These are among the top types of bingo games that you can play.

So many things we all remembered…now I alone remember…of life…of death…of war. And in that wordless moment following the final toast honoring all Vietnam-Thailand comrades, he felt the brotherhood was complete. The connection-made…the bond-forever…the torch-safely passed to the young men and women from the base. Years ago at summertime, while accompanying my nonagenerian, Mom Eden, to the Senior Center for lunch, we often saw Tony, dressed in shorts, walking at a fast pace, from his house to the Center, a half a mile away. ” to him and offered him a ride home, which he gladly accepted, but only after playing bingo.

To form a wine glass, players fill out the bottom row of the card. Then you have the stem of the glass, which is made up of a few squares in the center column. Then the glass flares out to the sides to form the cup. This is similar to the 90 ball bingo games played in the UK. A full house is where a player has all of the squares on a board. His makeshift entourage stood back…giving him space, as they called it, and for the moment grew quiet, each slipping into private thoughts of what The Wall and all those names represented. He knew some would smile as his eyes closed, thinking him drifting into another nap. But truthfully he found that sometimes, some places, he could actually see better, see further, with his eyes closed. He was twenty again…they all were so young…and each celebrating another day of life. Old reminiscences gave life to youthful memories and wandering fraternal shadows of his soul. I would give it all just to be there with them…one more time. His joy faded as thoughts morphed into night black as the deepest black-hole…his eyes following as a drifting pearl string of flares were consumed by the void.

The goal of this trip is to bring awareness to the SMVCA’s goals and to help our York County community. Forrest Mansur of Heritage Memorials will be doing a self-supported bicycle ride from Maine to Key West to benefit Southern Maine Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery Association Beautification Project. The Veterans Association has been working on this project for over two years and this is why Forrest has volunteered for this fund raising ride. They rolled him the few yards to see nearby old glory…and she was glorious, catching the cool breeze, rippling gently, as only such beauty could with dazzling colors perfectly backlit by the sun. He thought, if only you could talk…what stories you could tell. The flag always brought joy, and sometimes a lump to his throat, as it waved-to, ever so slowly, then-fro with a crisp snap. At another time…another place…we flew old glory and oh how we cheered to see her fly…but they made us take her down. The wounded, dying, dead warrior cradled in the nurses´ arms…her grief and compassion frozen in recognition that his spirit had left the body, and were it possible by will alone, she would have brought him back.
