Hi Karen. Well, Well, Beauty and Courage. What an unbeatable combination that is. I have tremendous respect for Medics and nurses. I served from '51 to '72., Korea to Vietnam. Was enlisted for 7years and was a Staff sergeant ( Recon squad leader) and then went to OCS and was commissioned as a 2nd Lt. ( rifle platoon leader ). In 1960 I converted to Cmbt Engr. and ended up in that job. An interesting life, but I'm glad it's a past life.The military can be a great life, but it sure isn't the easiest job in the world.
I would like to thank you Karen for accepting the invitation. So, as I told you in the chatroom one day, the main reasons that I am listening to LI are, (to hear traditional irish music of course!!) , to get in touch with people from all over the world who I have something in common with them (the irish music), and as a result of those communication, to improve my english knowledge....
Karen, Welcome to Grúpa na Gaeilge! I'm pleased that you joined. I have a self-paced program so it should suit you just fine. Read through all the posts and get familiar with what is going on. Let me know if you need any assistance.
Slán go fóill!
Hi Karen...How is the New Year going for you? Its really cold here. Wish it was spring already. We had a little snow again. Seems like it snows every other day. The cold weather is sure taking alot of expensive fuel these days. Take Care, Irish Blessings!
