I have an on-line subscription to the VA's bulletin board/news service. Here are some stats that may surprise you..

"This fiscal year, VA expects to provide...

* health care to 5.2 million patients,
* disability pay to 2.7 million,
* survivors benefits to nearly 350,000,
* educational assistance to 500,000,
* home loan guarantees to about 300,000,
* vocational rehabilitation to 100,000,
* insurance coverage to 7.2 million,
* burials to more than 100,000
* headstones to 350,000.

About 24.3 million veterans are still alive. Since the nation's founding, more than 50 million people have served in the military, with
1.2 million deaths during wartime."

I found this interesting and thought I would pass it along.
If you would like to start receiving these news letters from the VA, simply go to

Happy Veterans Day to all
from a very proud American veteran of both Navy and Army
John

Thanks to all Vets and enjoy our day. By the way, I'm sending this from American Legion Post 283, Pickerington, Ohio. They let me use their ATM phone line to access my e-mail.

A very special thanks to our comrades that are no longer with us. . . God bless you all.

Happy Vets day, from a 10 year Navy (CTR1) vet.
