I Am Thankful...

...To the Almighty One (He knows who He is), for making all the things that I am thankful for, possible.

...For my lovely wife, and two beautiful children, a girl and a boy.

...For the Founding Fathers, of the U.S. and for the Framers of our Constitution.

...For the Men and Women in Uniform and Armed Forces who uphold the Constitution.

...For the "Embeds" and "Milbloggers" (again, you guys know who you are) who show us the greatness of the US military.

...For Instapundit. If Glenn would not take a break between his posts, I would never leave his site.

...For YouTube, CombatVids and their imitators, for keeping me busy the rest of the time.

...For the Democratic society we live in.

October Video

Here are some great video clips, as a treat.

VBIED no more. Gotta hand it to the Air Force.

Some really good Terry Tate Spoofs. You have to see the original Terry Tate in order to fully appreciate these clips.

A great Israeli weapon called Corner Shot. The name speaks for itself, check it out.

Finally, twin 9mm auto glocks, seriously, I think I just crapped!

It's not the end of the fight against pork, but it's certainly a very significant step. Congratulations to everyone involved!
Indeed.

Frederick C. Rimmele, III. Dr. & Naturalist

Exactly five years ago on 9/11/01 at 9:03AM United Airlines flight 175 flew into the southern side of the South Tower of the WTC and all onboard died on impact. One of those on board was Fred Rimmele, or the Ponytail Doctor as he was known to some of his patients.

What drew me so much to this victim who was obviously loved by all, was the "All American" aspect of it, if you will. What I mean is, that unlike some of the Police and Firefighters that may have had some sort of glamour to the way they died, many of the rest of the victims where regular folks that lived life respectfully in their own decent way. That is special. It is sometimes overlooked but it makes that point all the more important.

When that plane impacted the South Tower, it did not just kill 51 innocent Americans, it shattered the dreams of those that loved them. Each one as an individual had their whole life ahead of them, with dreams and plans of a future. Be it a family, be it professional but it was a future nonetheless. If you want to be able to relate a little of what it feels like to lose a loved one, just imagine what you have planned for this week. Now imagine if your week would be the same without that loved one. If that still doesn't impact you, now multiply what I said by a lifetime.

Frederick Rimmele was 32 when he died. He was from Marblehead, Mass. and was a doctor at Beverly Hospital in Beverly, Mass. he was extremely dedicated and even made after hours phone calls to his patients, he was also known for his sarcastic sense of humor. He loved the outdoors, and his hobbies included bird watching. . He is survived by his parents and by his wife, Kimberly Trudel. The family requests that memorials be made to the Nature Conservatory.

For those that don't know what 2996 stands for and/or haven't seen any memorials for the victims of 9/11, here is a link straight to the source of the creator of this great idea.
