Discussion in 'Honor, Service and Valor' started by John Cox, Jan 27, 2010.
I added a couple of recent photos of Uncle John. The truck is John in our local Veterans Day Parade.
Welcome Sir, Look forward to reading your posts.
Hello John and wellcome
Welcome to the Forum, Mr. Cox. I hope you will enjoy it here.
I look forward to reading any memories of your experiences. I don't believe we have had the opportunity to interact with a naval Veteran before. Thank you for your service.
PS I hope you are feeling well again, soon.
Sorry about the post,Hi Jhon it's a honor to have you here!
Welcome to the forum sir.
I look forward to your stories from the war. Thank you for your services and heroism for the sake of freedom. I'm looking forward to seeing you around in the forum. thanks again for joining us and sharing your story.
Looking forward to reading more of your stories.
MR Cox It is my pleasure to answer you and honor to speak with you. To bad you're a sailer, that is OK, I served in USMC for 9 years and change and did a few tours in Viet Nam. My conflict was much different than yours and the kids now have even a different war. My father was a soldier in WWI and spent his time in Europe (France). Have his discharge papers. They were hand written and he got $167 to return to the USA.
God take care of you and let's hope this country has some good leaders and they don't let us down. Would appreciate and few words back.
WELCOME AND A HEART-FELT THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE.
I look forward to reading your story.
My hat (Navy dogbowl) is off to you, WOW the Franklin, the ship that wouldn't die!!!
I hope you are feeling better.
Mr. Cox- What a wonderful thing it is to share your stories about the War. Both my grandfather's served in WWII and one served in both WWII and the Korean War (Air Force).
Neither one of them EVER talked about the War and now that I'm older I'm left to try and piece together their history. They both have passed on.
It's very admirable of you and much appreciate.
Thank you for your service!
I too would like to welcome you. My favorite area of WWII study is the United States Navy in the Pacific. I've had an affinity for the Franklin since I was a small boy and saw a movie about her struggle. I don't remember the name, only that William Bendix was in it.
I look forward to reading your experiences.

Sorry, rather new to the board. And from boards I have been on in the past this one is set up much differently. Thank you for the "alert". At any rate I am still thankful to this veterans service and would appreciate a little slack, as I get used to this board. Still your post doesnt change the fact that I am thankful to every veterans service no matter the significance. Thank you for pointing out that the last post was in March of 2010, hopefully I am not too late to thank this fine Veteran.
And I might add that Mr. Cox only had 3 posts in all, and that his last activity on the forum was February 4th, 2010 at 01:32 PM. He might have moved on.
Please don't take this as an attempt to discourage thanking our veterans for their service. They can never be thanked enough.
