Politicians wasting money

These Supreme Court nominee interview sessions are a total waste of time and money. (1) The nominee avoids answering the “sensitive” questions, and ever if she were to answer them truthfully, it would not make a difference. (2) With the GOP controlling the Senate, the nominee’s approval is guarantee...

Re: Future Reunions

Further proof that “it’s over”?
Facebook is supposed to be the “gem” of social media and the 6th 31st 9th Infantry Facebook page doesn’t seem to be attracting very much activity at all.

Re: Future Reunions

I must admit that after our updating the Obituary section and notifying almost 500 men on our 6/31st roster, I expected to see increased activity on this website. However, we didn’t get even a handful of men signing into the guestbook. One thing, however, is very clear....you have provided, hands do...

I wonder with the lingering effects of Covid 19, along with us all getting older, if the reunion days are in the past?

As some of you are aware, I had an accident on June 10, 2018 which resulted in a fractured knee. I have been working with the VA since then in an attempt to get a knee replacement. As of my latest appointment on Aug 25, I have given up on the VA. Below is an attempt at my voicing my displeasure with...

The reporter told him, correctly, that his comment was false,...

They both show signs of early dementia. At least Biden knows what the 19 on COVID-19 stands for and that Colorado is not on the Mexico border. Biden has certainly made some gaffes but not even close to the number that Trump has made. In addition, I believe that the Washington Post now has Trump up t...
