Good idea! Thanks Vets!

Because my daddy was born on November 11 we often teased him that the nation took a holiday all because of him. He was a paratrooper and an all around great patriot.

Our family is grateful to the vets and their families for all they do and all they give.

I also fly our American Flag everyday but this thread got me to thinking. I always felt bad about not taking the flag down at dark since I didn't have a light shining on it. Fixed that today; when to Lowe's and bought a small solar powered light and fastened it to my flag pole! Now I feel correct in honoring our flag the proper way!!!!! Thanks for making me think!!

Thanks to all the brave men & women who serve or have served.

Without blowing my own horn, I try my best each day to do something, talking with my children / grandchildren of how important service is, reminding others, as a business owner, free service from my company. Supporting the local veterans organizations. Anyway possible.

I am thankful that I wasn't drafted for the Vietnam war. Many of my friends were. Only one returned, my best friend fron Jr. High School. Wounded physically & mentaly, held in dishonor at home. He held in high regard our America, even though he & many others were let down, even untill his passing in 2007.

Due to that experience, I regret not having my opportunity to serve. My friend wrote from Vietnam - don't volunteer! I regret that those who have are many times placed in danger by "misguided politics" are unappreciated, cared for. To their credit, our military performs despite "misguided poliics". Thankfully now they are not spat upon when returning home.

Thank You all Veterans & recruits. We citizens do really appreciate your sacrifices. I encourage all to do whatever it takes to improve your care & picking up the pieces of your lives when you get home. I will continue to do all I can.

Thanks Again, for being courageous, but keep safe as you can.

This is intended to be as supportive & appreciative as can be.

American Patriot

To all veterans from any branch of service, I want to personally thank you for giving me this freedom that I have and I know first hand that it comes with a high price. Younger brother killed Viet nam. Older brother wounded Viet Nam-Purple Heart-myself lucky I guess US Army 1967-1969 Drafted but still proud to go and my youngest brother joined the Marine reserves. All 4 of us boys {men} were in the service within a 5 year span at the same time. My real hero is my MOTHER for all the pain and heartbreak that she endured during this time. 4 sons at one time has to be rare but it was our duty to go and serve, at least thats the way we felt. So once again want to say thankyou and hope you all return home safe.

"A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to, and including my life." Author Unknown

To all fellow veterans, I salute you for your service.

Thanks and may God bless the men and women who serve our country now and in the past.
Freedom is not free, so many have given their all for it. May they rest in eternal peace with our heartfelt gratitude.

I thank all veterans for their service to this great country. I especially thank my youngest daughter, Captain Lori Kirkland for her service. She is recovering from hip surgery due to an injury in Iraq.
