A big heartfelt Thank You!!
« on: November 11, 2011, 07:16:20 AM »
To all of our Veterans, my Dad (Vietnam), my Grandfathers (WWII), and to all that have served, I would like to offer my gratitude for my freedom. Happy Veterans day.

Vietnam, 1966-67. Thank You for the thoughts, and here's passing it on to all the others. Public support is as important as the veteran.

thanks  USN (FMF)  '77 to '96.  broken service active and reserve  ;)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

My words would be inadequate to give you vets a proper thank you.  You are the true patriots.  But, non-the-less....

THANK YOU VETS!!!!!!!!!!!

God bless the vets and the USA!!!!!!!

American blood spilled to protect the freedom and peace of people all over the world.  320,000 USA casualties in WWI, 1,076,000 USA casualties in WWII, 128,000 USA casualties in the Korean War, 211,000 casualties in the Vietnam "conflict", 57,000 USA casualties in "War on Terror".  Benghazi, Libya, 13 USA casualties. These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".
