We Will Remember Them
« on: November 11, 2017, 08:09:30 AM »
High Flight

John Gillespie Magee, Jr

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.

In memory of F.L. John Sterne, D.F.C.... and all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.... We Will Remember Them !!!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Amen.  Thursday I had the privilege to meet a WWII veteran.  Not many of those guys left.
