Thank you so very much for bringing the story to this blog – a forgotten patriot indeed .

Reminds me of the song by Johnny Cash: Ira Hayes.

Yes, I remember. Something like 30% of vets are unemployed/homeless/mental illness and VA not helping for one reason or another.

That’s quite a collection you have there, Carl. Momentous days indeed.

They are special indeed !

Carl, these are wonderful. Thank you for sharing them.
I have to look through others I have for theme posts.

This is a nice set, Carl.

I saved first day covers for about three years.

Nice stamps and first day envelopes. They are like little artworks.
May 26th, 2013 at 09:58
Oh and the full color ones certainly are.

This makes me SMILE!!
Hi Paul. 7 AM still going.

Hi Mr. DaG, May I keep a copy of the Manila Stamps to share to the first generation in my family to start up a conversation piece from the elders?
May 25th, 2013 at 14:23
Certainly. In the meantime I’ll see if I have anything else Philippines to send.
May 25th, 2013 at 15:21
You are the Bestest! Thank you.

Just a small note to CAT, ‘He who does not remember history, is doomed to repeat it’ I’m sorry for your losses, but if we forget the lessons that WWII taught us about dictators and ruthless henchmen and their persecution of people like your relatives, then it could happen again.. We can do both, remember and concentrate on the now so that the past will not be repeated..

On a good day 10 kids would bring their book to class and maybe 4 did homework, 3 of which were copied from the one that did it. This generation has no sense of history or geography. I am not optimistic.

That is why we can’t “just forget about WWII and think about the now”

Nice Carl, thanks for sharing your personal collection with us..
But do you know what I noticed? In 1992 the cost of a first class stamp was thirty-two cents. The cost of that same stamp today is forty-five cents, in thirteen years, with inflation constantly on the rise, the Postal Service has raised that price by only ONE PENNY per year, on average. I can’t think of any other area of society or any other entity that has kept their price increases to a minimum as much as the U.S. Postal Service. I do have a vested interest being a postal employee, but I’m tired of hearing the disparaging remarks. Thanks for (unwittingly) providing the forum for my rant.

I still think it is cheap and am amazed how quickly things sent/arrive. For local it is usually next day. I dread the possibility of all the things that can get done to you by online banking and am glad I can still send a check in the mail.
May 25th, 2013 at 15:29
I’m with you on that.. But, I just got my cable/telephone/computer bill in the mail, and realized that they are now charging me $2.99 to send it to me.. I’m seriously thinking of changing my provider..

My family is directly connected to the holocaust of WW2 … gypsies were considered dirt then as they are now … I wish everybody would just shut up about WW2 and concentrate on the NOW … so angry …

There is so much suffering today from war and malnutrition and orphaned kids. I agree that a lot of this “don’t forget” energy should be avenued into today’s crises.
