    “Drop and give me 20 for Chesty Puller!” is forever etched in my memory. That and the knowledge of what those 20 were doing to the shine on my boot. 20 more for that.

    Re: The Greater Generation:

    Clicked on the highlighted term, yet no definition was found, but then it clicked in my head. Agree, the “greater generation” was my Grandfathers generation.. He was of poor immigrant parents, born in 1902. At the end of the horse and buggy era, he made and sold crystal powered radio sets on the streets of New York at age 14. He met Marconi. He started as a ditch digger for the American Telegraph and Telephone Company. Yet with only a 6th grade education, his career was remarkable. He even guest lectured at Harvard, and received an honorary EE degree. His team of engineers threw the switch that made the very first intra-net connection between the IBM and Hewlett Packard machines. And he retired just before the Moon landing as a VP. He, and Chesty Puller saw it all. And now we are seeing the end of it all.
