The people walking in the backround gave it away. I was in DC when the Memorial was under construction but I haven't see the completed Memorial yet. From your pic; it looks good. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Can you tell from the relief if the jeep depicted is a Bantam, Ford or Willys??

Re: OT New game, Where\'s LEVE...Nope where\'s Raduc

Before we leave DC this week, my daughter will donate bone marrow to a cancer patient.
I cant tell you how proud and nervous I am.
We don't know much about the recipient, but I heard he is 40ish,married with two kids.
Much pain is a certainty and she does not know this person.
I know a hero.

That is a great story indeed, God Bless your daughter for being both brave and compassionate!!/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

As to what kind of jeep in the relief, it looks like it may be depicting a Willys MB or a Ford GPW, which is really a safe guess on my part as those were the two most produced models.

Actually I can't tell you how proud Both Larry and his wife are of his daughter. (and nervous too.......thats his "little girl) We had a long talk on the phone about a week ago and that was a big part of it. KUDO's to you for raising such a great girl. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Re: OT New game, Where\'s LEVE...Nope where\'s Raduc

Thanks for the nice words and support guys.
I'll try to keep you updated.
My legs and feet are tired even though my wallet is getting lighter.
The hotel wanted 10 bucks a day for a cable, but I'm getting a wireless signal free for while it lasts.
The procedure is Friday, so they have one more day to drag me around DC.
LOL, I'm having a blast.

Re: OT New game, Where\'s LEVE...Nope where\'s Raduc

My daughter's procedure is done. She's pretty tuff, but she says, "My back feels like its broken". That's something since one of her sayings is, "Pain is weakness leaving the body". They took 1.3 liters (1300 ccs) of marrow. From what I understand 500-1000 ml is normal for a donation and 1500 ml is the most they can take. I guess she was giving to a very sick male.

That's great news, Larry! I hope she comes out of it OK. And that the recipient does well too.

Hey Larry, since I don't get a chance to go to the shindigs you guys have out that way, you ever go to the bash? I was thinking I sure would pony up a few bucks for special award. It is not every decade you hear about such a giving soul!

A very nice thought Scott, but she says "No thank you".
She's back with us in the hotel and very sore. Our flight home is tomarrow.
Thanks folks.

BTW... She made that bone marrow donation on her 26th Birthday.

My kids' mom (ex-wife) had a bone marrow transplant in March. It is much more rough on the recieving end but she is very grateful for people that go through the pain of donating.

You sit in the lazy-boy and watch tv for days with a broken leg in the air and see all the excitement I miss. That was a short game. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif Congratulations to your daughter on her bravery, compassion and selfless act. Not only does it say alot about your daughter, it says a lot about her parents and the way she was raised. And what greater gift is it to help someone else out on your own birthday? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif A belated Happy Birthday to your daughter from a Canadian.

Update:

Airforce daughter tells me the recipient is now making new marrow with her cells, doing well and has been released from the hospital. Looks like it may work.

My daughter says the only pain she has now is when she is doing sit-ups. LOL... the idea of sit-ups hurts me.
