Humor in Uniform
When David Hedison took lunch off the set one day, and still in 'Captain Crane's khaki's, a couple of sailors saluted him. Big change for a Seaman 2nd Class.
During the filming of 'The Enemy Below', Robert Mitchum kept teasing David  that it was  'Rudder' instead of 'Ruther', (It's a Rhode Island thing)despite the fact that David, being the professional he was (and is), had pronounced it properly.

The Words of Freedom


Carol Foss

Before I was born, they were there,

The Words of Freedom.

They speak of my right to determine my own destiny,

To argue and debate without being imprisoned for it,

To worship as I believe without being exterminated for it.

To be entitled to justice.

The words of freedom were fought for in blood.

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, for all mankind, for all time.

Strong words. Strong freedoms.

But paid for with a price, even now.

Even the longest lives are short.

Memories fade into obscurity.

But the Freedoms will continue.

And of those who pay the ultimate sacrifice?

Their names are written in the clouds.

Of peace.
