    I was eleven in ‘69. He married my mom, a divorced mother of two plus mother of his newborn (so scandalous, I know) in ‘63. He adopted my older sister and I in ‘69.

    And I’m still going to ask him, because it will make him happy.

    Did anyone catch the Trump speech in front of members of the military on this Memorial Day. A draft dodger giving a speech like this is bad enough but as always, he had to double down to make it even more vile. He talked about how great the economy is doing under his ADM and that the fallen soldiers would be happy about that. Imagine! Someone on Yahoo commented: "Leave it to Trump to put the ME in MEmorial Day!" It was disgusting and bizarre.

    Well, it would make me proud to know I served in the same unit as your dad.

    His tweet, I shit you not.

    Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!

    You from a military family? I salute them also. We are all brothers in arms.

    Glad you found that because I was expecting righties to tell me it didn't go like that and that he meant something totally different. You know, alternate realities.

    In the Marine Corps infantry we have a saying,

    OOH RAH! And Carry On Marines.
    My dad was 3rd Bn 5th Marines, 1st Marine Division, Combat Zone.
