you send me a suggestion or idea for a macro, please be aware that I
cannot pay for suggestions or ideas, and in any case, ideas are not
'copyrightable' so I may (or may not) use them in any manner
whatsoever. I will give you credit (your name only; no other
identifying information) unless you ask me not to do so, but that's
you send me a code snippet or functioning macro that you did not
create, be sure to let me know where you got it; otherwise, it will be
discarded. To use it, I will need the author's permission.

Some of my own
photos of Operation ShuFly,
the first major deployment of Marines into South Vietnam in April 1962,
are posted on that site (see here

Several of them

"Those who cannot
remember the past are condemned to repeat it." George
Santayana - U.S. philosopher, poet (1863–1952)
"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men
stand ready to do violence on their behalf." ... "The quickest way of
ending a war is to lose it." George
Orwell - English essayist, novelist, satirist and author of
"1984" (1903 - 1950)
"War is an ugly
thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of
moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is
much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to
fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is
a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and
kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." John
Stuart Mill - English economist & philosopher (1806
- 1873). Lest you think this quotation reflects a
conservative or "right-wing" position, Mr. Mill was an ackknowledged
liberal (in the classical sense).
