Pre-War, Post War, in our passion is a defining period that separates the way our boats were made, sold and designed. Today we take a moment to stop and think about the insanity of it all. And remember those that have given everything they have for us to be able to enjoy the freedoms that we cherish every day. There is no humor in it, just humbling gratitude and deep respect. So, today we remember, we pause, we salute, we cry, we love, we respect, we most of all thank the men and women that have fallen. We also thank the families that have sacrificed their sons and daughters. I wish we could live in a world that is more defined as Pre Philips Head, and Post Philips Head.
Well said Matt, and we fly our colors proudly for all the reasons you stated. Thanks to all of our veterans and happy Memorial Day to WoodyBoaterville!
We remember and never forget
My admiration and respect to all that have served but especially my dad, father in law and uncle who were all navy men in WWII and now my niece who was just commissioned as a navy nurse.
Thanks Matt for the “BIG POLE” picture!
Happy Memorial Day!
In memory of those that served.
Too windy here to put the flag up…Just watched a picture on the weather channel of the wayside park a 1000 feet down the beach from where we are right now at our place in Carrabelle, Fl.
This is the same beach where the troops trained for the Normandy invasion and later for landings in the South Pacific.
To all our American friends, Happy Memorial Day.
Every year, during Memorial Day weekend, I watch “Saving Private Ryan.” The movie is still a powerful reminder of what many people have sacrificed for our freedom, and for the freedom of people around the world. We owe our sincere thanks to all of those who have given their lives so that others could be free.
Kentucky that is such a GREAT movie and as you say a real reminder of the sacrifices made by the people of our country.
If I recall correctly it was based on a true story, with some artistic license I am sure.
If memory serves correctly, the closest real story to it is about the Niland family, who had four brothers serving. Two were killed, and one was lost, presumed dead. The army brought the fourth back home, and later on, the other brother was found in a POW camp.
“Its never large enough” picture.
Thanks for using one of my favorites. We were heading out to lead our July 4 parade on Lake George that year, with the biggest flag my wife could hold.
No airshows here today. Near-by based military pilots often put on “un-authorized” shows. Zoom…Zoom….Goosebumps.
My family and I’m sure many Woody Boater families are full of veterans. It’s a special day.
My wife still calls this “Decoration Day.”
Salute to all.
