    Agreed, but I dont need a special day set aside for it. I personally shake ands with and thank every vet and current military personel I meet every day. I deeply appreciate the men and women of our armed forces who put their lives on the line so we as civilians can live ours. I would LOVE to serve my country but I take meds for my ADD. Anyways, thank you all for securing our freedom which makes our country great.

    I wish they would quit insulting the vets with the loss of freedom, and in adding insult to injury, too many of these vets are jobless and homeless.

    Thank you to all our vets!

    While today is their very "special" day... they should be thanked every day.

    Thanks to all of our Veterans! [ (Thanks Grandpa & Dad ]

    I'll go ahead and say thanks for showing all the gratitude for all of our vets past and present and for those who make the ultimate sacrifice and are truly fighting for the rights we enjoy here back at home.

    I tried to get today off but no luck (USAF Vet)...My co-workers know I served so I had a 6-pack of Oberon Ale sitting on my desk when I walked in. Makes up for it I suppose.

    My own thanks goes out to my Brothers and Sisters in Arms new and old for continuing to serve our great country and for fighting for my freedom.


    This was sent around my Squadron one day and I have not forgotten this since I read it two years ago.

    IT’S THE SOLDIER

    It's the soldier, not the reporter
    who has given us freedom of the press.

    It's the soldier, not the poet,
    who has given us freedom of speech.

    It's the soldier, not the campus organizer,
    who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

    It's the soldier, not the lawyer,
    who has given us the right to a fair trial.

    It's the soldier who salutes the flag, serves under the flag and
    whose coffin is draped by the flag,
    who gives the protestor the right to burn the flag.

    ~~ Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC


    It doesnt say a lot, but it say it all.
