This man died today, he may look like any other old person but he was the last remaining combat veteran of The 1st World war. He joined the navy at 14 and had a 41year military career, published his 1st book at 108 and he was 110 when he passed away. No matter what your view on war, people like this deserve all our thanks. Governments start wars and the people fight them.
RIP Claude Stanley Choules.
so so so much respect
"I wanna thank country radio, and pop radio because the fact that all those different genres of music played songs off of my album makes me not have to think about genre when I’m writing songs and allows me to just think about writing songs. The way you take ownership of them the fans, with caring about them and doing covers on YouTube and I just love how you make it your own. I love you, don’t ever change. Thank you so much.”
I won’t change
Wow it really gets you thinking
I feel like I owe him something, and I hate owing people. Maybe if I had thanked him at some point, I’d be feeling less conflicted now. I thought about it a couple of times, but the opportunity never seemed to present itself. And now it never will. Because we’re going to be thrown into an arena to fight to the death. Exactly how am I supposed to work in a thank-you in there? Somehow it just won’t seem sincere if I’m trying to slit his throat.
TGIF! Get ready: next week we’re re-celebrating our legendary Timberweek on LNJF.
