To start our president cancels a visit to a WW1 American cemetery…..
President Trump and first lady Melania Trump cancelled their trip to the Ainse-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial in France on Saturday due to “scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather.”
The details: The Trumps were scheduled to participate in a wreath-laying ceremony and moment of silence, the Independent reports, to commemorate the more than 2,000 U.S. soldiers that died there during World War I. French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau all went ahead with plans to visit World War I memorials. According to the White House, Chief of Staff General John Kelly and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joe Dunford would visit in their place.

I send a shout out to all veterans on this day and to say a heart felt THANK YOU…..your sacrifices will be remember by me and my family forever.
Keeping with a small tradition here on IST I post a video of the unit I served in while in Vietnam for 2 and half years….I was a LRRP for the 9th Division…..
It is a lengthy video but well worth the view.
Even though the LRRPs were absorbed by the Rangers….I care not I was a LRRP then and will die a LRRP.
For your musical delight I shall leave you with the songs of my time…..
I leave you now….I have things that must be done on this day….thanx for all your support and I appreciate each and every one of my followers.
