Sheldon, you are very proud of your Father and it shows. Wonderful woodworking project with the scroll saw, a little machine that I am still trying to figure out. This is very good work Sheldon. Nice miters on the frame also.

Marines, Army I don’t care, I’m proud I served. My dad lost 2 brothers and was wounded badly in WW2. I got drafted during Nam. I did’nt agree with the war but I did my job, and proud that I did. 70 – 72 . US ARMY. I was an RTTY Operator kept me in the rear with the gear. Radio Teletype Operater. I thank the kids I see now days at airports or wherever, because thats really a sore spot with me. I came home one weekend from AIT, was going to surprise my family. I ended up walking 20 miles because no one would give me a ride. I got a lot of one fingered salutes, and cusses out the windows but no rides. Finally about 2 miles from my town I got a ride from my brother in laws brother. mike GOO_RAA

Your dad, you started out with then someone down the comments changed it to your brother. Thanks for everyone’s service to out country. Wish I could do it all again, just don’t think I could do it any harder though. Dang good job there Sheldon. I think that if my head was opened up, little EGA’s would pour out. Semper Fi!
