A Pollywog Creek Veterans Day Sabbath
Uncle Stanton, Mother, and Aunt Dorothy
and their parents “Bum Bum” and Mary Gardner
With special appreciation and thanks to the veterans I know and love: my husband Louis, my deceased parents Jim and Eleanor, Uncle Stanton, Uncle Jim and brother Mike; Louis’s deceased father “Speck”, Uncle “O”, Aunt Waleta and brother John, and our many friends, including Beverly, Tom, Charles, Win, Bill, Alan……
The following photographs were taken by Louis yesterday at the United States Seal Museum in Ft. Pierce, Florida.
Lt. Michael Murphy
(PLEASE read more about Lt. Murphy here.)
Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell
One of Michael’s fellow SEALs did make it off the mountain ridge — he was one of Michael’s closest friends. Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell of Texas, author of a riveting book called “Lone Survivor,” put it this way: “Mikey was the best officer I ever knew, an iron-souled warrior of colossal and almost unbelievable courage in the face of the enemy.”
from President Bush’s Medal of Honor Presentation to Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, U.S. Navy
Once God has spoken;
twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,
and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.
For you will render to a man
according to his work.
