    Default Thanks to all Military and Veterans

    On this day 11-11-11, I want to personally thank all you veterans out there for all your service to keep us free. While times are rough, at the current moment, I don't believe I would want to live in any other country . Well.......except maybe Fiji.
    On this Veterans day be it known that some of us US citizens truly appreciate your sacrifices to defend this Great Nation.


    You can see I trained all these smiley guys well. Like our troops.

    Thank you as well, just spent quite a few days in the airport on my way back to Afghanistan and there were so many people that smiled and said thanks. Definitely a lot better than what some of our Vietnam Vets had to deal with...Hats off to all military past and present!

    My first cruise back from the Gulf of Tonkin, they were demonstrating in San Fran to not let us dock and calling us all kind of names. I am glad the country is giving the vets these days proper respect. It has taken a while for me to be able to accept the thanks. I did what wanted for my country because I wanted to and would do it again no questions. But lately it is good to hear the appreciation for the service. My biggest concern is for the government not to forget the ones that need the VA Medical community, the government seems to forget over time.

    The government doesnt forget they just dont care. They got what they wanted out of us.

    To all Vietnam vets I just want to take a second and say welcome home. Most were never told that when they got home. From one veteran to all the others WELCOME HOME
