    Default Coming Up On 76 Years

    20 (4).jpg

    Usually I (along with others) make these special days known. 51 years ago today, I lost my best friend on the flip. He was 5' from me and was due to go home in 8 days.

    I figured I would let this Memorial Day pass with D-Day+76 years coming up until I saw this. Omaha Beach, 85% casualties in the 1st 15-20 minutes.

    ONCE YOU HIT A CERTAIN AGE, YOU BECOME PERMANENTLY UNIMPRESSED BY A LOT OF CRAP.

    I HIT THAT AGE 20 YEARS AGO.

    Totally agree with Zak.
    I remember going through the 1972 Viet Nam draft lottery; I drew a high number (329) and was classified 1-H.
    My wife tells me I waste money on the PowerBall lottery and I'm not lucky............

    Thanks for that heartfelt dedication/reminder Rick. Losing your friend must have been tough. I can't imagine.

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.
