“I long to accomplish a great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.”

– Helen Keller

*** History Of 9/11 Attack On The Pentagon Published

The Department of Defense has announced today that the Historical

Office of the Office of the Secretary of Defense, in collaboration with the Naval Historical Center and with the assistance of the Army, Air Force, and Marine Corps historical offices, has published a detailed, carefully documented history of the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the Pentagon.

Copies are available today for sale from the U.S. Government Printing

Office at 1-(866) 512-1800 or online at

“Pentagon 9/11″is the most comprehensive account to date of the attack

and its aftermath, examining both the impact of the deadly assault on

the Pentagon building and its occupants and the compelling rescue and

recovery effort that followed.

Five authors, led by Office of the Secretary of Defense Historian

Alfred Goldberg, worked from more than 1,300 oral history interviews to produce a sweeping narrative in words and pictures, including many

previously unpublished photographs, that provides graphic testimony to

the scale and force of the attack and the strength and courage of

survivors, rescuers, and responders who fought the fires, ensured

security, and cared for the dying and injured.

Publication of this important volume coincides with the sixth

anniversary of the Sept. 11 attack.

*** Four retired Navy Chief's are walking down the street window shopping. Then they turn a corner and see a sign that says “Veterans Bar” over the doorway of an entry into an establishment that doesn't look all that well kept up. They look at each other then go in. On the inside, they realize in this case, they could judge the 'book by it's cover.'

The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, “Come on in and let me pour one for you! What'll it be, gentlemen?” There seems to be a fully stocked bar so the men all ask for a martini. In short time the bartender serves up 4 iced martinis – shaken not stirred and says, “That'll be 40 cents, please.” The four Chiefs stare at the bartender for a moment then look at each other – they can't believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis and order another round. Again, four excellent martinis are produced with the bartender again saying, “That's 40 more cents, please.”

They pay the 40 cents but their curiosity is more than they can stand. They've each had two martinis and so far they've spent less than a dollar. Finally one of the men says, “How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a dime a piece?”

The bartender replies, “No doubt you've noticed the decor in here. And the outside ain't nothin' to write home about. I don't waste money on that stuff. But, here's my story. I'm a retired Master Chief Boatswain's Mate and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the lottery for $45 million and decided to open this place for real veterans. Every drink costs a dime — wine, liquor, beer, all the same.”

“Wow. That's quite a story.” says one of the men. The four of them sipped at their martinis and couldn't help but notice three other guys at the end of the bar who didn't have a drink in front of them and hadn't ordered anything the whole time they were there.

One man finished his martini and, gestured at the three at the end of the bar without drinks and asks the bartender, “What's with them?”

The bartender says, “Oh, those are retired Air Force colonels. They're waiting for happy hour.”
