Too many people will never understand this either.

These guys and , all Veterans are the only reason people are free in this country.

Thanks to all who have put their life on the line, and to those that left it there.

GOD bless the Troops.
Past
Present
and
Future.

Now a little off topic
I served my three years in the army in the Cold War era.
9-57 - 9-60
No one was trying to kill me.
I feel guilty when someone thanks me for my service.
As most of my Friends served in Viet Nam.
Air force
Army
Marines.
And one Friend spent several years as a P O W
Those are the ones
and the folks serving today are the ones to be Thanked.

Nothing to feel guilty about shadecorp, in fact, just the opposite. You served your country honorably and that's something to always be proud of. It's treating our veterans with less than respect that people should feel guilty about!!!!

Shadecorp, you signed on the dotted line, you raised your right hand, you affirmed the oath of serviced. If all these statements are true YOU SERVED AND ARE DESERVING OF RECOGNITION! I am not concerned with DATES OF SERVICE.

I was a member of the U.S. Navy for 2 months and 26 days (Summer of 65) I was discharged as too immature, I still feel I would have served to the best of my ability at whatever post I was assigned. My wife served stateside for 2 years as regular Army and 15 as National Guard, We served, proudly and would have done more, if you did not burn your draft card, or run to Canada, I see no shame!

Callmaker, you beat me because of my typing speed!

The only thing that bothers me is when I am called a hero.
I don't feel I am I was a guy who joined the military (USAF) because they wanted me so I went
I feel the real heros were the ones that came bock in a box, but I would do it again if I had too.
Bless the USA.
