Veterans Day ...Nov 11

Veterans day is fast approaching. It is on November 11 and here is what I want everyone to do in appreciation of our veterans and the sacrifices these men and women have made to insure the freedom of this great nation.

Between now and NOVEMBER 11 I want everyone that reads this or hears about this post to come to this post and show your appreciation for the service of these brave men and women. I want you to say ''Thanks Vets'' or ''Good job Vets'' or just something simple like that to show that YOU KNOW where our freedoms come from. If you will do this for me, I, Seajay the Sailor Man, do swear that I shall forgive and forget all I.O.U.'s for the ten cents that so many of you owe me for using my wonderful ideas. I further want you to understand that, though I am a Veteran, I am not doing this for me. I am nothing, I am doing it for the men and women are the real heros. I am doing this to honor the brave men and women that have put it on the line for the freedom of this great nation. I do it for the Men and Women of WW2 and Korea. For the Veterans of Viet Nam and the many ''stick fights'' like Granada and Panama where our Veterans lost life and limb and for the brave men and women fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan and the thousands that have come home missing an arm or a leg and especially for the men and women that didn't get to come home alive. Any Veteran will tell you that the ''real heros'' are the ones that lost their lives in defense of our freedoms. God bless our Vets....

Please, between now and November 11, Please, everyone come here and show your gratitude to the men and women of every service, every stripe and color represented in our Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, Marine Corps and every Reservist that has fought for this great country and willingly put their life on the line for our freedom. Remember this ......


God bless our Veterans......

Nuff said I guess, It's up to you now......

I served in the US Navy from 63 to 67. Like seajay said, I am nothing compared to the veterans who fought for our country. Pray for them often, the soldiers on active duty in Afganistan and Iraq. I never served in a combat area, so I con only imagine how terrible it is. I have two great nephews serving in Iraq and Afganistan and I pray for them and all the soldiers fighting these useless wars.

If it were up to me school kids would have to memorize these figures:

United States military casualties of war - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

or for a more official source:


Can't seem to get the second one to work, google American War and Military Operations Casualties: Lists and Statistics

You should end up at the Naval Library.

Come Christmas, Willa and I hope to adopt several and send some stuff from home. I send silly stuff like a toy train, battery powered remote control cars for racing. silly puttie, tinker toys, building blocks and ''goofie lips'' and ''hill billie teeth'' and yo yo's. When our troops tire of the toys they give them to the kids over there......

Seajay and to all the other Vets THANK YOU. As we drive around this great country of ours, we say Thank You each and every day to our Vets.
We have a tire cover that reads
US flag
We have had Vets and their families come up to us, thanking us, for remembering them. The reason we have the tire cover is because to many people in this great Country take for granted what our VETS have done for our Freedom.

If you happen by the Viet Nam Memorial in Washington, D.C. or are lucky enough to see the "traveling wall" please take note of Panel 18E, Line 119. Name is John V. Chutis (s/sgt, USMC).
John was with Mike Company, 3rd Bn, 3rd Marines, 3rd Marine Div. During the battle of "The Hilltops" surrounding Khe Sanh, Mike Company started the day of the assault with 161 men. At nightfall there were 80.
From what I read at Texas Tech's extensive Viet Nam material, it was a slaughter on both sides.
John and I grew up together from first grade through high school. Occasionally, in my dreams, I see John as we were in our (together) misspent youth.
JOHN V. CHUTIS...2 Oct 41 - 30 Apr 67. Just give John a touch of your hand, he'd like that. You may Google him @ John V. Chutis, Viet Nam Wall.
