    A touching family grouping. Thanks for showing
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Wasn't Eugene Sledge one of the main protagonists in the "The Pacific"? I think I will give it a read myself.
