Nice and a great tribute. I noticed the initials on the cross, a friend or relative from the Vietnam era? Dan

Not around here they don't mind if you call it a tat, maybe other places do though. Thank's speedydeedy.

Excellant tat Cole.
My family has a long history. My great great grandfather served in the civil war. I found his name on the rosters.
My grandfather served in world war II, he was at the battle of the bulge.
At the bulge he was captured by the Germans twice, but both times managed to escape and evade.
He also served in Korea. He was decorated greatly for his service.
He retired a master sgt. with 28 years.
My uncle John served in Vietnam with the marines, he arrived in '65 and left in '66. He was supposed to be a sniper, but was instead made RTO.
My father put 32 years in the military, and retired a master sgt.
He came hair line close to going to Vietnam, but at the last minute the orders for his unit was changed and instead he was sent to Okinowa Japan.
He did serve in desert storm however.
I myself wanted to get in the service, but since I was diagnosed with scholiosis when I was 11 which is a curvature of the spine and it went on my medical record. They told me then due to having it I could never serve in the military.
