Thanks Ron

Services for Real Estate Pros with The Real Estate Investment Institute 1retiredsage

A friend of ours, all of ours Ron Withers has retired so we don't see him in the Rain very often. Fortunately we can keep up with his and Adrienne's active retirement on face book."

Ron reminds us yesterday was:

"Today marks another Anniversary of the Raising of the US Flag on Iwo Jima. Raised on February 23, 1945. If there was ever one photo that captured the hearts and souls of American's....this is the one!

Thanks Ron

That of course reminds us of:

 

Sad isn't it that the media skipped this!

You are so right the media does not remember, nor want us to either.

Great video William. I do remember the Ira Hayes story but it was a good refresher.

Gary,

I first heard about Ira Hayes in boot camp. As I grew older I realized that his story is so uniquely American! No Americans were ever treated worse than our aborigines, no group! For more than half our history we shot them like vermin. But, just two generations later still being mistreated when the chips were down we all came together!

Ira Hays was an American hero! Where but America can we find such behavior? Where but America do even the lowliest come to the aid of every one just because they can? Ira Hays represents the best of America, his story though shows the worst.

Brenda reminds us yesterday was also when Sanaanna attacked the Alamo. Remember the Alamo! I say don't forget Ira Hays!

Bill this is my first time seeing this video and hearing this story. I wish this type of history could be remembered by all Americans.

Bill thank you for the update on Ron.  I had not seen him blog for a number of months now, and did not realize that her had retired and moved on to a new phase in his life.

Bill ~ I've only been playing in the Rain just a little over a year and did not know Ron.  Glad he is enjoying his retirement.  I just loved the video of Ira.  Thanks for bringing that to our attention!

Bill, what a wonderful tribute to Ira. It is sad that heroes like him have been forgotten. I live close to Iwo Jima Monument and Arlington Cemetery. I will be visiting Ira at section 34 soon to pay him my respects.
