You really are lucky, not just to survive the crash, but to have a military that is looking for witnesses.  Our military chain-of-command follows a different formula:

 

1) deny there was a crash.

2) admit there was a crash but deny it was a military aircraft.

3) admit it was a military aircraft but assert no military personnel were injured.

4) admit military personnel were injured but assert they were off duty at the time.

5) admit they were on duty, but then discharge them as unfit for service (injured) & deny liability for their injuries.

6) when the s**t storm hits the news, blame them for filing the wrong paperwork.

We hear you on that last comment--- there are times when we really wonder about the gov't. attitude towards our servicemen. They brag them up and want them to serve, then if they get hurt--??--  well, "who the heck are you, and why should you get support?"  Not much justice there.

The U.S. Army does that too. Its like the doctors have a quota for screwing soldiers. I've seen them lie and distort test results. They've been really bad with the Reservists and National Guard that have been to Bushs' wars. Many were limited to two years VA benefits even though they know that the problems are for a lifetime.

 

In 93 a bunch of us at the VA hospitol were talking. One of the guys said it had been 25 years since he came home from NAM. When do the nightmares stop he asked. An old guy said that it was 75 years since he came home from France and they haven't stopped yet. Its a helluva price to pay!

Cheeses me off that the vet's get discarded like they are nothing.. Everyone in office makes four or five times the amount a service man/lady makes. With out these great service men/ladies  we would be under Hilter rule..  I would love to see those in office serve for two weeks over there.. NOT in a chair either.  in the field. 
 
Sorry for my rant.. it's a soft spot in my heart. My wife usually leaves the room when someone brings it up...

I can't say there isn't a soft spot in my heart,but...... Let's not forget the original intent of the post. I'm glad N-S is still with us and gets to enjoy the new addition to the family.

Agreed.  I didn't mean to Bogart the thread.  Congrats on the new comer!  Enjoy the early years.  They are tough when you are in them, but they are awesome memories.

As i had said in my first post.. Im glad he is doing better.. Family is all there is that bonds us.. Not just family you are born into.. I'm 100 percent behind the Service folks of the USA and Canada..  Im just sickened by how most of em get treated after they lay their life on the line..

So I have decided to build the crib and furniture for the baby room, I have been looking at ideas on-line and I am working on developing plans. Also on the plans table is to eventually build an all terrain stroller/wagon with independent suspension that can be modified as the child develops to eventually be a rock crawler/dune buggy

That sounds cool! If you don't mind, take us along as you build these!
