The LuLac Edition #1002, Nov. 10th, 2009



To all of the veteran's from all of the wars, we thank you for your sacrifice. Here are a few Veteran's Day TV events you might want to consider:
Secrets of the Dead," PBS, 8 p.m. The ongoing efforts to find the remains of World War II airmen whose planes went down in remote or uncertain locations.
"The Way We Get By," POV
on PBS 9 p.m. A documentary on the "Official Greeters" of Bangor, Maine, a group of volunteers whose goal is to ensure that every soldier leaving or arriving at Bangor gets a personal thank-you for his or her service. More than 900,000 soldiers have been greeted by the team, and "The Way We Get By" focuses on why these volunteers feel their own mission is important.
"Tattooed Under Fire," PBS, 10 p.m. Special focusing on a tattoo parlor near
Fort Hood. Tattooing has become a ritual that reflects the psyches of soldiers heading off to combat — and the messages here are intensified by what happened at Fort Hood the last week.
"Return To Duty,"
MTV, 9 p.m. Ryan Conklin from "The Real World: Brooklyn" talks about going back to the Middle East for a second tour, again bringing the issue of veterans from the past into the present. C-Span will carry the annual Veterans' Day ceremonies from Arlington National Cemetery. AMC will show war movies all day, including "Patton" at 12:30 p.m. and the first two "Rambo" films starting at 8 p.m. TCM will show lesser-known war-themed movies until 8 p.m. These include "Tender Comrade," a 1942 Ginger Rogers film about women welders on the home front, and "Bad Day At Black Rock." The Military Channel will feature several specials, including "Medal of Honor" segments at 4, 8, 9 and 11 p.m.
HBO will run a special on Arlington National Cemetery at 7:30 p.m., followed at 8:30 p.m. by "Taking Chance," in which Kevin Bacon plays an officer escorting a dead Marine back home.


On this Veteran's Day we replay our "Uncle Willie" video.

This is Taps like you've never heard it before from an Andre Rieu concert. One of the most moving and inspiration versions I've ever heard. And this little girl is the one making this incredible sound.

From myself and my family I wish to extend my thoughts and prayers today to all the veterns who are serving now or have served in the past to allow us to have the liberties and freedoms that we have today.

Dear LuLac Reeaders:
On this Veterans Day, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all of the men and women who have served and who are serving in our Armed Forces. Our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen defend our democracy and freedom every day. Their willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice ensures our safety and preserves our liberty.
As a Lackawanna County Commissioner, I supported increasing the staffing and funding levels at our Veteran's Affairs Office.
As your next Congressman, I will be fully committed to ensuring that our troops have access to all the resources they need to accomplish their missions and to stay safe.
Our country is only as strong as our continued commitment to our veterans and that is why I support the expansion of educational benefits for veterans who have served on active duty. I also support lower cost mortgages and high quality health care for veterans.
We must never forget the immense sacrifices these brave men and women have endured on our behalf. Please join me in making sure that our commitment to our veterans matches the dedication they have demonstrated through their courageous service to our country.
And to all of our veteransoday and every dayhank you.
Corey D. Orien

Once again OBrien is an opportunists who never misses a chance. Had he been in the service he would have learned that you stay till your enlistment is up or the mission accomplished. He has accomplished nothing as Commissioner and now wants higher office without regard to his term as Commissioner. Kind of Sarah Palin like. This Vet wont vote for OBrien again!

Hey 1240AM: The guy O'Brien at least is demonstrating empathy for the Vets. Give him a break. O'Brien is getting people mad because he's not adhering to the old "wait your turn young man/lady" to run for office. Would you rather O'Brien be some ward heeler in Moosic and then when he turns 68 somebody "lets" him run for School Board? As a veteran I appreciate his comments.

Wait your turn has nothing to do with it regarding OBrien. Do the job you just got voted into and finish your term is the point.
12:40 is right. Its Sarah Palin like behavior. (Same goes for Doherty) There is a place for bright young men and women
around here, but first one needs to show commitment, follow thru and accomplishment! Also as a Veteran I appreciate anyone looking out for Vets. God knows we dont do enough.

12:40 AM & 12:15 PM, You both sound like solid Americans who chose to tell another American what he can or cannot do. WOW, talk about the American way. I just read where the new health care reform bill will cut 400 Billion dollars from Medicare and our wonderful Congress will not offer an increase in SS payments for the next 2 years but will increase the Medicare costs to seniors. Yeah right, let's beat up on O'Brien and give Kanjorski another two years to stick it to us. Wake up and you go for it Corey. This is still America regardless of what those two knockle draggers say.

Whats a "knockle" dragger? OBrien in my opinion is just another politico and full of crap, but I guess once in a while you must believe in someone or something. Please note those two knockle draggers both served America or so they say. Did you? Veterans get lip service from politicians and the media. Same as it ever was.
