Thank you Veterans!
« on: November 11, 2014, 08:29:31 AM »
For your voluntary service to our Nation, those of us who didn't/couldn't serve, thank everyone of you who answered the call and were/are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to procure the freedoms we all enjoy.

We also humbly remember and honor those who've paid the true cost of our freedom; God bless their families and friends deprived of their presence.

Thank you & God Bless you all-

Thinking of all who have and do serve on this day of remembrance.

Thank you all and God bless. We are truly grateful for your sacrifices.
I'm getting ready to go be in the service here at home.

Lest we forget.

I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

I heard a statistic yesterday that bruised my soul.

We lost 58,000 soldiers in Vietnam.  Since then more than 150,000 Vietnam vets have committed suicide.  And now, on average more than 20 veterans a day  currently commit suicide.  Most of our soldiers returning from the box are under 30 years of age.

incredible.  A thanks seems hardly adequate

Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

Here's a link to a video shown to students at our school today, after a ceremony in honor of Veterans Day.  This is the first year I've taught that we were in school on Veterans Day-made it worthwhile to be in attendance!

Thank you to all on this site and everywhere who have served and gave of themselves to secure our freedoms.

Thank you veterans. From the "Greatest generation" to the current warriors protecting our nation and it's people. We humbly thank you for everything you have done in the name of freedom on our behalf. May your places in heaven be assured, and the remainder of your lives filled with joy and happiness. God bless you all.

Thank You to all you Veterans that have served or is serving, our country.

Thank You to those up above, that died in battle, for giving the ultimate sacrifice.

Thank You to those still around, that have been there and done that, for little to no thanks, and very little pay.

Thank You to those I have come to know as brothers, on this forum, for having the balls to sign on the dotted line, where I did not.

Thank You All Veterans for being tough SOBs. If you weren't, we would be speaking a different language....and that's a fact!!

My family and I owe all who have served and/or are serving a huge debt we can not repay. Thank you all for your service and sacrifice.

My respect and gratitude go out to everyone who has ever put on a uniform and vowed to defend this great country.

Right next to them on my list are the spouses of those great people. The next time yall thank a veteran in person, turn and thank their wife also. It takes a special kind of woman to commit to that lifestyle. And stay there through it all.

Words are inadequate, so I'll settle for saying "thank you for your service"
