I just wanted to have us all stop and think about all of our veterans tomorrow Monday the 11th. Sometimes we just think of veterans day as just another day off or as a federal holiday that makes it possible to have a 3 day long week end .
Veterans day is meant to honor all of those have given so much to there country and to us as citizens of our great country. Remmeber what all of these great men and woman have done to serve, they surrender there lives to serve and protect our country, and it’s people leaving loved one’s,comfort and freedom to do as the wish behind. These fine individuals go where there told go and live in substandard living quarters with little pay in locations that have terrible climates where danger and death can be around every corner.Many of these hero’s returned maimed for life or don’t return at all giving the supreme sacrifice for their country .
I for one sincerely thank each and everyone of our veterans(and those who serve now)for your personal sacrifice ,bravery and dedication to our people and country. God bless you all.

I’m not sure I could say it better—thanks Jim for this post, reminding us that freedom isn’t free, and our brave men and women in the military deserve our thanks and gratitude for giving everything they own to protect and defend our great nation.

Thanks Jim, I was Signal Corps, Vietnam 68-69. I was there against my will. It took 15 support people to keep one man in the field. With my MOS I could have ended up a field radio operator. I thank my luck I dug ditches for buried cable.

It was a pretty dumb war as most of them are.
