Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Etched in granite on the face of a Vietnam Veterans Monument in Buffalo, New York, are feelings that should be etched in ourt hearts:

They answered when called;
Asked for little and got less;
And made us richer for their sacrifice
But poorer for their passing..
In remembering the dead,
We embrace the living.
For we ought to remember
Better than we do.

    My uncle was a chief petty officer us navy assigned to repair ship USS Vestal AR-4 he was a electrician.He was aboard the Vestal during Pearl Harbor,and the Vestal was berthed rite next to the Arizona when it exploded.His ship was one of the ships that got underway during the attack.His ship was saved and it since was a repair ship was the first one in drydock for repairs.It was heavily damaged.The crew did repairs and salvage on thousands of craft during the war.
   Both are gone now and are heros in my book.Several cousins also served.Myself i would of liked too but my eyes were not that good so i couldnt enlist..
