Thank a vet.

In light of this holiday weekend remember to thank a vet for there service. Go to a parade and thank a vet, put your right hand on your heart as the flag goes by thank a vet. Remember our freedoms are not free some one died for our rights and freedoms thank a vet this weekend. Take time during this weekend and thank a vet. Take time during your barbeques and a thank a vet. I know all of us know at least one person that has served our country. Take the time to thank them for that service.

Thanks to all our vets. As one member's sig says: All gave some, some gave all. We have what we do today in large part to past and present vets.

Thank you.

I would like to say THANK YOU to all the service men and women, both active and veterans. It is your service that allows all of us to be free. Stand proud, and hold your heads high. Every one of you has earned that right, and also should have the respect of every American.

Kind of a sad story in this regard. We've had a few soliders die in Iraq of late, and the community has come together for each. Full honors at the funeral, emergency vehicle processions, people on overpasses, the works. It's been great. A co-worker of mine is a Vietnam vet; he said nothing was done for almost all of the vets from his era that gave the sacrifice. He's glad it's changed now, and so am I...

So a special thanks to the Vietnam/Korean vets. It seems sometimes your sacrifice isn't mentioned as often as it should be....

JPHelzer is right too- the older vets, many of which are now leaving us and who have made the biggest sacrafices, did not get the welcome and support that we do now.
Its great that the country has stood behinds its services as well as it does now, even with those that should be objecting to the reason of the action, not those doing their job...
