    It would be really nice if when these post were made in a 'general' area, the poster would realize this is the main page of QRZ and is of world interest. With that in mind, people who read this probably would like to know WHY this is of importance around the world.

    If there's more data that can be posted, please do so.

    Until my father passed away in 1985 I did not realize how quickly his generation was leaving us. The WORLD owes a debt of gratitude to the men and women who helped to bring WWII to a conclusion. Appropriately, within the Amateur Radio community we show our respect and gratitude by acknowledging their service as they leave us and, I hope, as we continue to meet them on the air.

    High Flight

    Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
    Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth
    of sun-split clouds, - and done a hundred things
    You have not dreamed of-wheeled and soared and swung
    High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
    I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
    My eager craft through footless halls of air...
    Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
    I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
    Where never lark, or even eagle flew-
    And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
    The high, untrespassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

    My Grand Father was the first born us citizen on my dads side to German parents that meet on the boat to Ellis island. He enlisted at the start of WWll. He was at D-Day and served as a translator attached to a radio unit I can remember watching fireworks one forth of July with him seeing him white knuckled and shaking from them. He never spoke of the war what I know of his service I know from the rest of the family. Many people do not recognize the life sacrifices this generation made to keep us free. We should all take a moment not just on 911 but regularly to remember those that have given there lives to keep us free. I am reminded of this quot.

    "I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom. Yours very sincerely and respectfully, Abraham Lincoln."

    May the Major's family and friends find peace, may our heavenly father comfort them as he welcomes his son home.

    As America felt that cool December 7 day and then on that crisp September 11 morning. Let us

    Mike, in the last century there were 3 major events that affected just about everyone in the world. First was World War I, next was the depression and finally the Second World War. Many folks in the Major's age range experienced, possibly all 3, to some extent. The Major had a long life and probably had many friends all around the world, both ham and non-ham. For his ham friends world wide there is no better place to post the word of his passing than here on QRZ in this forum.

    For you to become active again on the low bands you may want to consider combining your love of sking with SOTA. Summits on the Air would be a perfect fit and allow you to make QRP contacts (perhaps with an Elcraft kit or something of your own design) and then enjoy a down hill run to finish the day. Think about it.
