freedom1--you're an idiot. Dave is a community leader doing what a leader should be doing. I'm sure you've never been in a position of respect or leadership, and never will be, but community relations is a big part of the job. Dave has a talent and he spreads a lot of joy with his musical ability. If you're worried about Dave doing his job, rest assured that Dave works far more than the 40 hours a week he is scheduled for since he has to spend a great deal of time dealing with loosers like you.

Freedom1- you know nothing. You are a petty little man who hides behind his keyboard and throws stones at people in respected positions. Go ahead and get your kicks trying to make yourself look important by implying that you know anything that isn't public knowledge. Small people like you feel so inadequate when compared to men like Dave that you have to take cheap shots at them and throw out baseless innuendos to make you feel like your miserable life is worth living. You are nothing but a sad little man.

This was supposed to be a remembrance of the tragic events that happened eight years ago, Freedom1 you managed to turn this into a free for all making a personal attack on someone. You have the right to free speech (thanks to those of us in uniform ) but please have the common courtesy to not use a 9/11 event to do it.

Remember 9/11, I know I will never forget.

I'm not a long time resident from Brazil but I was Indiana born and have served in the military over 20 years. As a Medic I was a member of the The Pentagon Rescue and Recovery Team and spent many days at DC and NYC crash sites in the days following 11 September 2001. I was greatly blessed by the ceremony and the music of P-150 yesterday. Thank you for remembering and honoring all that gave after the nation suffered after 11 September 2001. God Bless, Gerald Scott Flint, 932 AES, Scott AFB USAF and Director , Volunteer Medics Worldwide volmedics@aol.com
