I smile I do love him,Picked up my great uncle to Bbq today ,he was a 187th rakkasan Korea.

And a friend of his from the old soldiers and sailors apartments. They both career military my great uncle 1950- 1977 and his friend usmc 1949 - 1970 both were senior NCOís upon retirement. Both later served Vietnam in infantry units and my great uncle later with teams on his second tour. Today weíre Bbq a party for them in honor of Korean War. Itís just my way in hey I respect them. See I got lucky never had to go war as kid in infantry. What I was told Collin Powell talked asshole regan out of ground troops Central America. If true I owe him General Powell a thank you.

Upon picking them up they were outside old soldiers apartments seeing them I smiled. And they both were wearing with pandemic mask the hat and t shirts Korean War. I ordered and dropped off for them last Saturday. A first marine hat and t shirt and a 187th rakkasan hat t shirt. As they climbed into Tacoma I asked them is it big band night here at the apartments. You both dressed to the nines. I got a reply from the retired marine fuck you kojak as I have been shaving my head bald in pandemic.

So we stopped at tobacco shop to get two cans each of tops tobacco and two tubes each of filters. I got my great uncle a rolling machine for cigarettes for Christmas. Then to the beer distribution for 3 cases of Pabst blue ribbon. And old Milwaukee 3 cases for the gunny.

Upon arriving at house they immediately started on the deviled eggs and now are both drinking playing nickel dime poker with the boys. And they have go outside to smoke. I lit the grill weíre doing honey bbq chicken beans corn coleslaw baked potato today. I gave my uncle a new pair of sneakers I ordered two pair off Amazon as we both like to walk for exercise.

I told my boys make them have good day these guys are a different breed. And donít let your great great uncle talk you into wild cards shit playing poker. You get what the house deals you. I love them both old warriors.
