The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need by providing homes close to a loved one during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.

There are currently 31 houses located on the grounds of every major military medical center and several VA medical centers. These houses will play a critical role in caring for casualties from Operation Iraqi Freedom. Donations will be used to help meet the cost of lodging for a family whose loved one was injured in Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom. There is a limit to the number of families who can stay in a Fisher House and program is committed to help provide lodging for families who must find commercial lodging, because the Fisher House is full.

Good morning to all of our military and troops at home and abroad. Thanks for all you're doing for our country.

Good morning Linda, how's it going? Those pancakes sure taste good.

Good Morning Radix! The Hawaiian Pancakes sound different. It would be interesting to try some.
Good morning to our military and good morning to the whole Canteen crew.

Warm up exercise for today . . . . .

One night, a police officer was stalking out a particularly rowdy bar for possible violations of the driving
under the influence laws. At closing time, he saw a fellow stumble out of the bar, trip on the curb,
and try his keys on five different cars before he found his. Then, sat in the front seat fumbling around
with his keys for several minutes. Everyone left the bar and drove off. Finally, he started his engine
and began to pull away.

The police officer was waiting for him. He stopped the driver, read him his rights and administered the
Breathalyzer test. The results showed a reading of 0.0. The puzzled officer demanded to know how that
could be. The driver replied, "Tonight, I'm the Designated Decoy."

Today's FEEBLE attempt at humor:


A couple was relating their vacation experiences to a friend. 

"It sounds as if you had a great time in Texas," the friend observed. 

"But didn't you tell me you were planning to visit Colorado?"
"Well," the husband said, "we changed our plans because, uh..."
His wife cut in, "Oh, tell the truth, Fred!"

 He fell silent and she continued, "You know, it's just ridiculous.  Fred simply will not ask for directions."

Today's classic warship, USS Cecil J. Doyle (DE-368)

John C. Butler class destroyer escort
Displacement. 1,350 t.
Lenght. 306'
Beam. 36'7"
Draft. 13'4"
Speed. 24 k.
Complement. 186
Armament. 3 5"; 4 40mm; 10 20mm; 3 21" tt.; 8 dcp.; 1 hedgehog.

Cecil J. Doyle (DE-368) was launched 1 July 1944 by Consolidated Steel Corp., Orange, Tex.; sponsored by Mrs. O. P. Doyle; and commissioned 16 October 1944, Lieutenant Commander D. S. Crocker, USNR, in command.

Cecil J. Doyle carried out her first mission while still in shakedown, when she cruised on an air-sea rescue station during the flight of Government officials to the Yalta Conference. On 30 January 1945, she rendezvoused with HMS Ranee, and guarded the escort carrier through the Panama Canal and north to San Diego. Cecil J. Doyle continued on to Pearl Harbor and Eniwetok, where she arrived 28 March to join the Marshalls-Gilbert Patrol and Escort Group. Her escort duties took her to Guam, and Ulithi, where on 30 April she was transferred to the Carolines Surface Patrol and Escort Group. On 2 May, Cecil J. Doyle 's commanding officer became Commander, Screen, Peleliu, protecting the great anchorage in Kossol Roads.

While on patrol, Cecil J. Doyle several times rescued downed aviators, and on 27 May 1945 bombarded a by-passed Japanese garrison on Koror Island.

On 2 August, she was ordered to the rescue of a large group of men in rafts reported at 11°30' N., 133°30' E., and bent on top speed to be the first to reach the survivors of torpedoed Indianapolis (CA-35). It was Cecil J. Doyle's melancholy duty to radio the first report of the cruiser's loss.


She rescued 93 survivors, and gave final rites to 21 found already dead. Remaining in the area searching until 8 August, Cecil J. Doyle was the last to leave the scene.

From 26 August 1945, when she sailed into Buckner Bay, Okinawa, the destroyer was assigned to occupation duty. She sailed with hospital ships to Wakayama, Japan, to evacuate released prisoners of war, then screened carriers providing air cover for landing of occupation troops. Through 12 November, she cruised on courier duty between Japanese ports, and after drydocking at Yokosuka, sailed for San Francisco, arriving 13 January 1946. She was decommissioned and placed in reserve at San Diego 2 July 1946.

Stricken from the Navy list on July 1 1967, she was sunk as target off California December 2 1967.

Here's my hopefully-not-as-feeble-as-tomkow's ateempt at humor: This guy (we'll call him Gerrad) bought a computer, even though he had never even used a typewriter before. After investigating the computer, he decided to call the help line. A friendly voice explained step by step how his new machine worked. All went well until the voice told him to press the space bar. After studying the keyboard, Gerrad said; "I've got the latest model and it doesn't have a space bar." But after further explanation, he managed to find it. A week later, Gerrad again had problems and called the help line. An instructor was then sent to his house for training. But after a few minutes, Gerrad's head was spinning. "You don't need to go any further," he sighed, I don't understand a thing." To cheer him up, the instructor said: "Hey, there are people who understand a lot less than you. Last week we had someone on the phone who didn't even know where the space bar was!"
And before you ask, Burka Man, I DO NOT want to by a burka.
