THIS DAY IN WWII:
THIS DAY IN 1965:
|Saturday, September 18, 1965 - What?? NADA?!?|
|“One can never tell
what will be the result of faithful service rendered, nor do we know
when it will come back to us or to those with whom we are associated.
The reward may not come at the time, but in dividends later. I believe
we will never lose anything in life by giving service, by making
sacrifices, and doing the right thing.”
Heber J. Grant
From Patty Andrews Mays ('61) of VA - 09/1715 - "Thank You":
|Thank you so
much, Carol, for your quick response to this. My brother
is quite ill and is struggling so hard to get stronger and
better. He wants to stand up so much and does not have the
strength to even try.
Susie Overton Jones from his class letting the rest of
the class members know. He was very quiet in high school and
did not have a lot of friends, but who knows? People come
through in time of catastrophic illness and any cards he
gets will brighten his spirits.
You're so welcome, Patty! Again, Raymond's address is: Raymond Andrews, 104 Pioneer Lane, Yorktown, VA 23692.
From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 09/17/15 - "Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant":

Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder
Off we go into the wild blue yonder
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At'em boys, giv'er the gun!
Down we dive spouting our flames from under,
Off with one hell-uv-a roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame,
Nothing'll stop the US Air Force!
Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder
Sent it high into the blue
Hands of men blasted the world asunder,
How they live God only knew!
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
Gave us wings ever to soar,
With scouts before and bombers galore,
Nothing can stop the US Air Force!
Here's a toast to the host of those who love the vastness of the sky,
To a friend we send the message of his brother men who fly.
We drink to those who gave their all of old,
Then down we roar to score the rainbow's pot of gold.
A toast to the host of men we boast the US Air Force.
Off we go into the wild sky yonder,
Keep the wings level and true!
If you'd live to be a gray haired wonder,
Keep your nose out of the blue!
Flying men guarding our nation's borders,
We'll be there followed by more,
In echelon we carry on!
Nothing'll stop the US Air Force!
