“Am I a hero? I don’t know. Yeah. I’ll be a hero. I’ll go for that. Yeah.”
Wednesday Hero profiled the Code Talkers way back in 2005. But this week it is honoring Cpl. Lloyd Oliver. Cpl. Oliver was one of the original 29 Navajo Code Talkers. He joined the Marines in 1942 at the age of 19 because he wanted to serve his country. Which he did, proudly, for three years. In 2001 he received the Congressional Gold Medal for being one of the original 29 Navajo Code Talkers. He passed away on March 16 of pancreatitis. Cpl. Oliver was only one of two remaining original Navajo Code Talkers.
Not only have we lost a great man, a brave man, but a piece of history is another step closer to being gone forever. We must keep them, and their place in it, alive for future generations.
These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

Goodness… Life has a way of throwing loops at us when we
least expect it…
Sunday we were to host the Carnival of the Cats (Cotc). Due to
unforeseen circumstances I blew it..
Nikita Cat at Meowsings of an Opinionated Pussycat picked up the carnival for
us. Nikita you have our sincere thanks…Mog again our apologies.
For future Cat Carnivals visit the Catblogosphere, up to date info on everything cat!
I feel terrible missing this! Being sick wears me out to the depth of my soul.
I know the brats have been bummed not to share their beautiful faces with you all
So just for a quick hello and we are back…
Tigger, Sir Woody, and SonnyBob send purrs and scritches to all.
We send thanks for the prayers and support of our friends….
