[QUOTE=dieselclacker;1366001][QUOTE=Ray,IN;
FWIW, this years stats say there are fewer than 1% of us who have served in the Military


Ray, I thought your 1% figure sounded a little low, so I googled the numbers, and around 7% of the U.S. population are armed forces veterans, and about .75% of the population are in uniform at the present time. There is thread on the veterans forum that has a more complete breakdown of the numbers.[/QUOTE]

Thanks for catching my mistake. I wrote it wrong,as you correctly said. My 1% should have been as you stated, "in uniform". 7% is still a small percentage; they are the best and bravest of the 100%.
I sincerely hope all veterans were recognized today. You have my respect and gratitude.

During the football games today, I was also watching "Band of Brothers"........I must have seen it a hundred times, and each time I see how our troops sacrificed so much for our freedom.
Another Veterans day has come and gone, I home we will never forget.
