    Pappy Boyington Memorial Denied

    Can you believe the disgusting U of W in Seattle students who refused to honor Gregory "Pappy" Boyington an MOH awardee by turning down a memorial because he was a "rich white guy"? Pappy graduated in 1933 worked briefly as Aero Engineer Boeing,then Flying Tigers then joined Marines BAA BAA BLACKSHEEP a great F4U Corsair squadron in WWII.Pappy is one of Marine's Top Aces but had a drinking problem and ended up working in a Fresno liquor store bossing aok around.He was far from "rich" and was part Sioux.I pass his grave on visits to Arlington which I did today. He was POW tortured by Japs for 20 months, one tough cookie to survive WWII & Aok both.BTW- Aok will you post your NFI gains for the day,we are all happy for you even if you are a miserable sumbitch.

    • Plute,
      The U of Washington's decesion is a sad one. The WWII guys are dying off in great numbers and soon it seems they will be forgotten like last years news,,,,,Pitiful Fucking Deal for them and us!

      • O,
        Pitiful - What is pitiful about it? The soldiers of the Revolutionary War have been forgotten, the War of 1812, the Blackhawk War, William Henry Harrison battle with Tecumseh at Tippencaoe on Sunday 11 Nov. 1811, the Civil War, the Spanish American War, World War I,etc. Nobody is living when these wars were fought (expect a few during WW I,) so people don't remember them, and as the old saying goes, "Time nor Tide waits for no one." Tomorrow is a new day, with a new war - did somebody say Iraq - and what a waste - of course look at our, "Mission Accomplished," leader - what a waste.

      You know what My Novastar gains are.

      You are are a more miserable sumbitch. Pappy was sad all of the time that I saw him, but he was a great pilot and heroic, so that Washington thing is BUNK.

      Say Hi, Plute. I am sure that you did.

      Do not get in my space again.

      Love

      aok
