Pat Tillman...A GREAT AMERICAN!
Take time to remember all of those who have given everything so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have today,
Happy Memorial Day. BEAR DOWN!!!
Here's a little something to memorialize today also:
Also, here's a little history about General John Pershing -- the namesake of the versatile Pershing Missle; one of the most feared cold war weapons -- that points to a part of history that is lost and forgotten that also involves a young General George Patton and the desert southwest. I cringe at the site of the Pancho Villa statue in downtown Tucson:
In this St. Petersburg Times report, a picture of Mexican General Obregon, with Pancho Villa center and Pershing on the right taken in Nogales, Arizona. Behind Persing's left shoulder is a very young George S. Patton.

Thanks for the links Jerry.
Anytime to remind myself about Pat Tillman (And all soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice and those who sacrificed) is a good time but especially on this memorial day! Thanks Wildcat_Brad.
Oh yeah you too Jerry I always enjoy your vast knowledge on great links!
Nice posts, gentlemen. I spent part of the day reading my grandpa's World War II letters to friends and loved ones back at home. Pretty special.

One of the most overlooked things on Campus is the bell and artifacts from the USS Arizona in the Student union.

"We have a tradition of kicking Bill Walsh's ass" - Teddy Bruschi
Wineknow, the bell itself has a story and tradition attached to it. It was almost destroyed:
