    Default Been really busy

    Been really busy and missed this date in history. Lets turn back our clocks to May 17 1987.

    35 sailors died in the only successful missile attack against a US Navy warship. The remainder of the small crew fought gallantly for their lives and their ship. As ships often do, she brought her crew home.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    Rest in peace.

    Never forget that these military people are out there every day protecting the freedoms that so many take for granted.

    I was in 4th grade in 1987 and I don't remember this happening. However after viewing the pictures it is a harsh reminder of what all of our service men and women are faced with. My thoughts go out to the families of the service men and women who gave their life for all of us. The feeling of reading about this kind of stuff, hits you just like when we read or hear about a fallen or injured fellow firefighter.
