In remembrance of my Grandfather Snarr, who served in the US navy during WWI.

In remembrance of my father, Jim White, who served in the US navy during WWII, and was in the first wave to land on Omaha Beach.

In remembrance of my father-in-law, Bill Rice who was a medic at Omaha Beach.

In rembrance of so many of my friends who were lost in Viet Nam.

And a special thought for every mother, lover, wife and child...to anyone, from any nation, who has lost a loved one(s) to war.


We get by with a little help from our friends

To my uncles who served in WWII, Benny, James, and Raymond and my father who served in the Korean and Viet Nam War. And to my brave Grandmother who had to see them off and not know if they ever would come home. You're right, Dove, to those who gave their tomorrows so we could have our todays.
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

In memory of my father, who served in a Highland Regiment in Korea, Aden and Palestine.

To my Uncle Alex, who served in the same regiment.

To my Uncle Robert - a prisoner of the Japanese at 19, and was forced to worked on the Burma Railway. He came back a broken man in his mid-twenties and was never the man he could have been.

To my Uncle Willie, who served in the Royal Navy and was torpedoed on the Murmansk Run and spent time in a German PoW camp.

'We shall remember them'.

Whenever I hear the lament 'The Flo'oers o the Forest' being played, I remember ALL the fallen, of so many nationalities. Young lives lost to us.
