A salute to all veterans, both past and present.

FREEDOM HAS A FLAVOR THAT THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW!" (unknown)

Two brothers and I went to Nam-we made it back. Our first cousin, an only child, wasn't so lucky. He was KIA 15 Oct 1970. He was like our brother. We won't forget, ever, Joe Jr. Thanks Vets-I salute you......

To go along with that thought; Remember.

Thank you for your post.

It's sad that so many younger people don't realize, understand, appreciate, or whatever the right words are for the price paid, over and over again, for their freedom.

My uncle served in the Pacific for 4 years during WWII.

Thank you one and all.

Add my family and me to the list of those thanking the veterans...

We would not have what we do today without their selfless efforts...

Hi walt, great to see you

I went today to 'check' on my dad, although, the way he looks these days shows he's on the road to recovery from my mom's too an early depature. We played Bingo, wao, a lucky day for me indeed..

Anyway, there we were, some winning some loosing, when somebody mentioned the fact about the long weekend- El Dia Del Veterano, in PR. [literaly translated would be The Veterans Day]- this is when my dad, who was in a navy ship for 3 years in the pacific, cut in and told one of his awsome stories about those days where he had, in a sense, the most intense, but best days of his life. Yeah, it was fun today.

But the storytelling wasn't over until after my cousing took us back to his days in Vietnam. Some would say he has never been the same. hm, he's a little bit of a short tempered, but not dangerous..and there's nothing wrong either with being opinionated..he's a great dad, and also a loyal friend. I'm really glad to have him around..

Warm reagards to all the veterans and their families.

Thank you for your service. Thank all of you that have served or are serving. We have lost family. Many of you have. They will not be forgotten.
