Kind thought, Patron. I’m no veteran but in the late 60’s and yearly 70’s I worked nine years in a Canadian Veterans hospital. I saw all those broken individuals who gave parts of their body and some their lives to give us freedom.
I stand up to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

Best,

Serge

Thanks Patron,
I will retire from the Navy on Dec 31 after 20 years and 26 days of service. It has been my honor to lead the finest men and women in the world serving in the United States Navy.
Thank you to all the brothers and sisters that paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Bertha -
I’ve been watching that too with a strong sense of deju vu. Sure brings back memories, but I’m having trouble believing that we were so damned young!! – lol

Thanks, David! I just feel blessed to that I have all the pieces & parts I had when I reported for Basic training.

I thank God for men like my Dad and my father-in-law … between the two of them, they had almost 700 days of front-line combat and were awarded a combined total of 9 Bronze Stars.

And it came to pass on the eleventh day of the eleventh month and in the eleventh hour the armistice was signed to end all wars in the year 1918.
Now being a Monday Morning quarter back I can see that it didn’t stop all wars, so I would like to take this chance to thank all my brothers and sisters in arms, for raising their right arm and repeating after me: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

Thanks for the post David. And thanks for the thanks.

-- Mel,

Yes thanks to all of the Veterans. I feel sometimes they can be over looked at times.

The other week I was receiving treatment at the VA hospital, my girls met me in the Cafeteria and there sat a gentleman across the room wearing a “WWII / Korean War” hat and I quickly thought of all of the things those eyes must have experienced. Simply amazed at the thought of this man’s service. My service likely paled in comparison :)
