This page I dedicate to my other half Dale!!!

Here is an actual pic of my hubby
with his dog Happy.
This pic is a little old, but he still looks mostly
the same, with exception he has a full beard now *G*

My hubby is, well a bear of a man *G*
and sometimes is as stubborn as a bear
but other times
he is as soft and sweet as a Teddy bear.
Oh now! Dale no faces you know it's true*LOL*
Actually Dale loves
the Bald Eagle,and that is what this page will
mostly contain,but I had to add the bear*G*
Dale also collects small toy
cars (such as Matchbox, and Hot Wheels)and a few other kinds.
He got started doing this a few years ago
when he started picking up
my sons car out of the yard, and keeping them*LOL*

Dale also likes to camp, fish, and hike.
His other favorite pass time is WWF,
and WCW wrestling
how boring *G* He is a structual welder by trade,
and also drives the company truck.
We both love animals
and being in the country.
He enjoys going to the Lock & Dam during the Winter
to watch the eagles fish *brrrrrr*
His heart is firmly gripped by country music (the older kind)
and gives me one of his bear looks
when I play my music*LOL*

Dale is a Vietnam veteran, he served one year in Vietnam.
From 1968 to 1969 he has both good
and bad memories from there.
He met a lot of people there, made more than a few friends,
as well as lost a few friends and as he
has told me some of them didn't
die in body but in mind and soul, and even though
he is not bitter, he wonders which death was the worst kind of death
there are parts that still haunt him,
and always will. He has also told me on many occasions about the Australians
that fought that war with our men,
he talked about their bravery, and their love for having fun *S*
Dale also told me that other than an American,
he would choose an Australian to back him everytime.
Dale told me that he had met very few people
as brave, loyal, and strong
of mind, soul, and heart *S*

Each day better than yesterday.


May you have the courage

Passing along timely information........time to remember.


Some veterans bear visible signs of their service: a missing limb, a jagged

scar, a certain look in the eye.

Others may carry the evidence inside them: a pin holding a bone

together, a piece of shrapnel in the leg - or perhaps another sort of inner

steel: the soul's ally forged in the refinery of adversity.

Except in parades, however, the men and women who have kept

America safe wear no badge or emblem.

You can't tell a vet just by looking.

What is a vet?

He is the cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia

sweating two gallons a day making sure the armored personnel

carriers didn't run out of fuel.

He is the barroom loudmouth, dumber than five wooden planks,

whose overgrown frat-boy behavior is outweighed a hundred times

in the cosmic scales by four hours of exquisite bravery near the 38th


She - or he - is the nurse who fought against futility and went to sleep

sobbing every night for two solid years in Da Nang.

He is the POW who went away one person and came back another -or didn't come

back AT ALL.

He is the Quantico drill instructor who has never seen combat - but has

saved countless lives by turning slouchy, no-account rednecks and gang

members into Marines, and teaching them to watch each other's backs.

He is the parade - riding Legionnaire who pins on his ribbons and medals

with a prosthetic hand.

He is the career quartermaster who watches the ribbons and medals pass him


He is the three anonymous heroes in The Tomb Of The Unknowns,

whose presence at the Arlington National Cemetery must forever

preserve the memory of all the anonymous heroes whose valor dies

unrecognized with them on the battlefield or in the ocean's sunless deep.

He is the old guy bagging groceries at the supermarket - palsied now and

aggravatingly slow - who helped liberate a Nazi death camp and who wishes

all day long that his wife were still alive to hold him when the nightmares


He is an ordinary and yet an extraordinary human being - a person who

offered some of his life's most vital years in the service of his country,

and who sacrificed his ambitions so others would not have to sacrifice


He is a soldier and a savior and a sword against the darkness, and he is

nothing more than the finest, greatest testimony on behalf of the finest,

greatest nation ever known.

So remember, each time you see someone who has served our country, just lean

over and say Thank You. That's all most people need, and in most cases it

will mean more than any medals they could have been awarded or were awarded.

Two little words that mean a lot, "THANK YOU".

Remember November 11th is Veterans Day

"It is the soldier, not the reporter,

Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet,

Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,

Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier,

Who salutes the flag,

Who serves beneath the flag,

And whose coffin is draped by the flag,

Who allows the protestor to burn the flag."

Father Denis Edward O'Brien, USMC
