Just a salute

to those of my old unit that did not return

Contemporary period (when I served on the DMZ, 1970-71)

Reorganized in the spring of 1958 in Fort Benning, Georgia, the division improved its training before returning permanently to Korea in July 1965 to ensure security in the region. On November 2, 1966, soldiers belonging to the 21st Regiment of the 2nd Infantry Division were killed by North Koreans in an ambush. The following year, 16 US soldiers were killed in the demilitarized zone. In 1969, four additional soldiers were killed. On August 18, 1976, two officers of the division were beheaded by North Korean guards.


A few photos to share

There was a Hawk nest across the street and the parents have been frequent visitors to my yard. Apparently, the young are out of the nest now and my yard is being used as a flight and hunt training ground. What I assume are the young have been in a couple of my trees for the last few weeks, on low perches, screaming their heads off. I have slowly approached them daily, and now they allow me to get as close as I wish. Estimate I have 100 close ups of these beautiful birds!

In this one, I imagine he is contemplating how edible I might be, lol.


Another spectacular sky three days ago

My wife calls this the angel, I think it may be an alien spaceship with tentacles (considering recent topics on GD)

Look closely for the moon and airplane to Miami, I missed the better alignment nearer the moon

A little closer now
