The 59 Veterans Honors MOH Recipient Ralph Puckett Jr.!

WE SALUTE THE BRAVEST OF THE BRAVE!

Today it is our pleasure here at the 59 Vets Project to celebrate former Army Ranger and retired U.S. Army Colonel Ralph Puckett Jr. who led the defense against six Chinese assaults on a frozen hill during the Korean War.

He is presently the oldest living recipient of the U.S. military ‘s highest decoration: the Medal of Honor!

His act of bravery was truly up and beyond the call of duty and extraordinary. He is what we call the bravest of the brave. And we are honored and proud to salute him. 🇺🇸️💖🇺🇸

Loyalty is Everything!

Today is a great day to celebrate POET’S Day and share every ounce of it with loyal friends whoever and wherever you may be. So, here is a revisit of my favorite song and written poem on the subject of loyalty–ripe and ready for this celebratory day!

The ultimate loyalty song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XH9HtJBWMzE

My best loyalty poem:

DESERT LOYALTY

Once you found yourself alone…far from trust and paradise,

Bereft of all those you gave every ounce of loyalty to.

Though now these sands are harsh and hot–they are as cold as ice!

And rife with the rage of a world that has turned against you.

Yet time after time another promise has come along…

Heard from the lips of ardent friendships that swore to be true.

Instead, you were left to die…like silence murders a song,

Or as wind does over the sand…to leave the desert askew!

Then here upon this barren plain you happened upon me.

To find and save my life when I was at death’s very brink.

Still, though I humbly thanked you and swore eternal loyalty,

You no more believed me…though I wrote it in mortal ink!

Now over time and other lifetimes the desert has fed

More betrayal to you, and too much disdain of me, I think.

Still, I have waited years to be thirsting and almost dead…

Ah, to find water and give you the first and only drink!

— Patrick the Poet

Happy

For this POETS Day and to usher in a happy weekend, Here’s a happy song and poem for everyone. For as you know, happiness is like love–something you can never have too much of!

The most happy song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-diB65scQU&t=1s

And a poem from moi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-diB65scQU&t=1s

HAPPY

Regardless of skill or aptitude,

Or what errant fate may want to see,

We can choose to change our attitude

To one that is cheerful and happy.

For yes, life can be unforgiving

And spent in quiet desperation.

But I choose to continue living

A life of happy expectation!

— Patrick the Poet

MORE GREAT READING FOR YOUR EYES & MIND!

Soon, we expect intrepid poet-writer Kristen McHenry to be dubbed The Sestina Queen, the sestina being probably the most challenging type of poem for anyone to pen. But in this week’s post, as interesting and creative as it usually is in so many ways, it also showcases her other artistic talents as a painter and visual artist.

It’s all so enlightening and fun to read and absorb, and you really should go here and not miss it: https://bit.ly/3ZsgzYy

TWO GIANTS OF MEN!

SALUTE TO WWII VETERANS FAMOUS & NOT!

It is our sincere pleasure to share this amazing tribute post from professional keynote speaker John Fenzel on LinkedIn. It contains a picture worth a million words!

“Just a guy with 39 successful combat flight missions on his resume about to dig in with a guy who was a machine gunner at Omaha Beach on D-Day behind the plate. Two giants among men.

“Yogi Berra, No. 8, and Ted Williams.”

We remember you and we salute you!
