Ten Hut RIP my dear Monkeyman
Thank you for the honor of being your online friend. I will miss you tremendously.

Friday, 1 June 2007
Dale Peters in IL has been recruited to join Randy "Doc" Barne's Honor Platoon.
Posted By Robert Hanafin at 2:06 PM


All Readers of my Blog,

I don't know if anyone ever knew Dale Peters from Chicago, Illinois who posted a Blog of his own on VFA and ensured a few of our Blogs were forwarded across the naton on various Veteran listserves.

Regardless of the views and direction the collective we must take on IRAQINAM now, Dale Peters along with Randy "Doc" Barnes of Kansas City, MO (who left us in 2006) were viewed as worthy strategists in helping the Democrats take back Congress in 2006. Both rallied Veterans in the mid-West, organized caravans, fought for Veterans benefits, while opposing the War in Iraq.

Both were also proud members of both Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), and Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA), in fact it was their inspiration and encouragement that persuaded this Retired Officer to become a member of VVAW in 2006, and I never protested the Vietnam War though I was in it and opposed it.

To the point, in the event you did know Dale Peters, I wanted you to know that Brother Peters passed away in Chicago this past Wednesday, and Dale desired his passing and funeral to remain low-key and as low-profile as Dale tried to be.

Apparently, it was Dale's wishes to have a very low keyed service.

The best I know is that there will be a service tomorrow, Saturday, from 1 - 2 at:Modell Funeral Home7710 S. Cass AvenueDarien, IL 60561630-852-3595

If anyone resides in or near the Chicago area, you may want to pay your respects. The address for sending cards or flowers is ABOVE.

Dale was an Illinois state organizer and leader of Veterans for Kerry in 2004, and a favored target of free republic who kept a dossier including Dale's VVAW FBI file from the late 1960s - early 70s.
Dale and I have worked closely on the Veterans for America (VFA) Blog until I noticed that he disappeared a few weeks ago and started looking for him.

At one point the freepers and other right-wing nuts even accused Dale Peters and I of being one and the same going on a campaign charging Dale of impersonating a commissioned officer.
http://newsblogs.chicagotribune.com/news_theswamp/2006/...

Frankly, that was done on both right and left-wing Democratic sites like Democratic Underground, and the liberals all time favorite Daily KOS whenever Brother Dale Peters joined me and other Independents in taking an INDEPENDENT STAND that went against both parties for the best interests of Veterans, troops, and military families carrying the burden of the War on Terror all by our lonesome.

Let this Mustang be bold enough to tell those who helped kill Dale two things. First, if anyone seriously believes that LOYALTY to any ONE political party will end or win IRAQINAM, YOU are in for a rude awakening. Don't trust ANY politcal party nor have loyalty to any one or two party system. The faster America achieves a multi-party political system the better. PLEASE take this from a long-time conservative Republican who voted for Reagan and never looked back until John Kerry.

The other is let me assure you and all are Welcome to check with VVA, because unlike most Nationalistic organizations (the American Legion and now VFW included), the VVA requires one provide a DD-214 for membership, that Bobby Hanafin is a Mustang, even if one does not agree with my politics or views on IRAQINAM, and I am a member of VVAW, because I do not blindly support ALL WARS.

That does not means that I BLINDLY OPPOSE ALL WARS, because someone has to do America's dirty work for us, and as a career military man I would be a HYPOCRITE to tell VVAW members otherwise, but having a military (volunteer or otherwise) does not mean American leaders need to or must turn it into a Professional Killing Machine that is offensive by nature. The American sheeple are not cut from such cloth as Radical Islam, and most of us who experienced Nam know this.

Such sad news - his posts were so heartfelt and smart, he sounded like such a great guy.

It's not uncommon for one spouse to follow another shortly. My great-grandparents did this, just six months apart after living into their 90s (he was a WWI vet). There is something about this that strikes me as a cosmic kindness.

Rest in peace, Monkeyman (and Monkeywoman). You won't be forgotten here. :patriot:

211. RIP to a fellow Vet
I always made certain that I paid attention to/read Monkeyman's DU posts. I was never disappointed. He will be missed on DU and untold other places, in the cyber and non-cyber realms. RIP and Blessed Be, MM/Dale.

Withywindle, your comment, "It's not uncommon for one spouse to follow another shortly," was right-on. I can attest from personal experience as my parents passed away 6 weeks apart (my Mom died on 12/25/05 and then my Dad passed on 2/14/06) They grew-up together in a small rural Ohio town, went to the same schools K-12. and ended up marrying in 1944 just before my Dad (a Navy corpsman) shipped out to the Pacific theater. -- Michael

124. In the early morming rain,
another Medic died today;
each must go his own way,
in the early morning rain.

(from an old Army cadence that I would sound off occasionally)


There is a time in all of our lives when we realize that our time has come, and we are prepared to leave this plane and travel to the next. I believe that when we reach that next plane, we meet up w/those who have gone on before us, and it makes for a one hell of a good moment.

For those who have borne the scars of battle, for those who have served to maintain the Peace; for those who have sacrificed their time in making their corner of the world just a little better, I stand and salute you. You are not muted by the grave, for you are remembered for your courage, levity and honor. The days grow shorter as I reach that line you have already crossed, the nights a re a little colder, now that you are no longer here w/your warmth, the world is a lesser place now.

Stand tall for a moment and remember.

Monkeyman's passing will leave a huge void on DU and in the lives of all who knew and loved him. I always looked for his posts, and will miss him dearly.

God Bless You, Monkeyman! You touched my soul. I'll always remember you!

162. If I recall ... he had recently lost his life-long partner
:cry:

years ago I read that often that the surviving partner of a long relationship often dies within the year of the death of that partner. I am deeply sorry for both losses. RIP. :cry:

and we face the spirit for our lives, imo, and from the likes of your description of this man, he has a special place in the heavens! what a TOUCHING tribute to him, I have tears welling in my eyes, and I haven't done that for a tribute in a long time...

I find it great when a man with great character and what people consider brave macho qualities stands up for peace and compassion.

My prayers to those who knew him well...

I am speachless. I am shocked. I am gut-punched. I feel like I did the day Bain Wisemann got shot down. So unexpected. So out-of-the-blue. So Viet Nam.

RIP Dale

BTW: When I signed on to DU in May 2001, I had no idea we would bury so many members. We need a composite. Maybe even a separate forum to honor this growing legion.

199. Crossing The Bar
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.

232. Monkeyman, RIP.
A brilliant and prolific member of Democratic Underground.

An avatar was mentioned above, and I thought, I don't think we have a veterans rights avatar, and to create one would be a good way to honor Monkeyman. Unfortunately, I'm not the computer graphics type but I think the typescript of the Democratic Underground along the lines of "Support Veterans Beyond Battle," although my intent is hardly to dictate the text or form of such an avatar.

271. The number of those who will miss him and his influence in this world says so much
When someone passes and it leaves such a great feeling of loss to so many, that is a testament to the good they accomplished in their lifetime. Many people will mourn the loss of Dale Peters. Some of those people will carry on his work as best they can in his absence. His legacy will be the work of those people, the ones he touched that will never forget his efforts.

May we never forget what he stood for and believed in.

For those who deign to carry the burden of others who cannot, such is a life well lived. For he who fixes his gaze first on obtaining wealth, power, and fame, will never know that the wealthiest man in town is he who has the most friends.

Monkeyman picked up the heavy burden of others and carried it well. With his passing he has not laid that burden down, but rather passed it on to the rest of us to continue the journey.

Job well-done Monkeyman. We will take it from here.....

(Thanks for posting this Sapphire)

284. Be at peace Monkeyman
Very sad news. It's some consolation that he was able to witness Bushco starting to crumble in earnest and disapproval ratings levitate as the majority of the public finally caught on to reality. Until the last couple of years it seemed these rethuglicans were going to be able to get away with anything they chose and no one and nothing could stop them. However far we still have to go, I'm glad for any of us who lived past those times to the present day when Bush is largely regarded as a loser and an albatross around the necks of the GOP candidates. And Monkeyman did himself proud by being an activist who did his part to help bring this about.

327. Sad sad news
It is said that only the good die young, and I'm starting to believe it. RIP to Monkeyman. My thoughts and prayers are certainly with his family and friends. And to both of you, Mr Hanifan and Mr. Peters, as well as all others, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. As you stated, someone has to do the "dirty work".
:hug: :cry: May the rest of our fighting men and women come home unscathed and soon.

333. Good-bye, Monkeyman.
I will really miss you here at DU. You were one of the few that I sought out. So often, you and I unintentionally posted the same vidoes or articles. I feel like I've been socked in the gut at the news of your passing. May you be reunited with your wife.

342. A salute to
a brother in arms and peace. Very sad.
KING. What's he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin;
If we are mark'd to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.
God's peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more methinks would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
We would not die in that man's company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian.'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispian's day.'
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
(Shakespeare, Henry V)

343. Oh, no!
:cry: I always loved reading Monkeyman's heartfelt and insightful posts, and he did so much good work for his fellow veterans...the world will be a sadder and poorer place without him, I think. :( Rest in peace, my friend. :patriot: :cry:

Peace, my heart,
let the time for the parting be sweet.
Let it not be a death
but completeness.
Let love melt into memory
and pain into songs.
Let the flight through the sky end
in the folding of the wings over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle
like the flower of the night.
Stand still, O Beautiful End,
for a moment,
and say your last words in silence.
I bow to you
and hold up my lamp
to light you on your way.

~Rabindranath Tagore
