http://www.ptboatforum.com/cgi-bin/MB2/netboardr.cgi?cid=101&fid=102&tid=516



A very special thank you to those WWII PT BOATERS that paved the way for all of us. The sacrifices you endured made it possible for future generations to enjoy all of the freedoms we have today. This thank you certainly goes out to all Military Veterans and those boys today that are fighting to protect our Country. As you go to bed tonight, say a special thank you to all Veterans. God Bless you all.........

Thank You Frank and Michael. Those are kind words for all us old time P.T. Vets. The Navy took 3 years out of my life but I have always thought it a privilege and honor to have served our wonderful Country. Our service time brings back many memories and I am very mindful of those who did not return and enjoy the benefits and freedom that I have been able to enjoy. We only hope that future generations can have the same opportunities.
Thanks Again!

Well said Frank...I echo that statement with my thanks as well. It can be easy to forget that a hobby or a passion that we all share here on this forum came at a price paid for by those PT sailors living and dead. God bless you and the USA!

I'm sorry Michael, no offense taken or intended at all! I wasn't trying to leave our allies out...God Bless Australia as well. Aussie men and women paid the same price after all, right?

Thanks for your comments about my site BTW - I appreciate it!
