HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY 2014 To All Veterans

Dear Friends and Comrades,

It is that time of the year to celebrate Memorial Day and remember those that have put themselves in Harm's Way to defend their country and the people in it. There is only one person that is the recipient of three (3) Air Force Crosses which is 2nd only to the Congressional Medal of Honor. His name and rank are Col. James H. Kasler that is the veteran of the WWII, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. He flew combat missions in all three of those wars and he was considered "the hottest pilot" in Vietnam. Col. Kasler was on his 91st combat mission in Vietnam when his wingman was shot down and he was trying to provide cover for him with the possibility of flying in and picking him up. That was not to be because he was shot down, also. He spent from August of 1966 through March of 1973 as a POW in the infamous Hanoi Hilton POW Camp where he suffered unimaginable torture. He recently passed away and had his funeral services on Friday, May 16, 2014 at 11:00 A.M. at the Crown Hill Funeral Home &  Cemetery here in Indianapolis. I went to the cemetery on Saturday, May 24, 2014 to place flowers on his grave as a remembrance for this fine patriot for my Memorial Day celebration. 


How can you be so beautiful in so many different ways?

It is because you are a lover of life.

When you are a lover of life that love manifests in a million, billion, no a trillion ways!

And, each of those ways creates a new beauty in you!
