    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Amen First Sgt!

    Thanks to all our Veterans, living and departed, and their families for the sacrifices they made for our country. When you see a man or woman in uniform, thank them for their service!

    God bless them!

    I wish I could be there with you to help out. Stay safe!
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    With no desire to divert attention and accolades from any and all Veterans, I wonder how many participants here know that this holiday was originally known as Armistice Day.

    It originally marked the end of WW I (ONE--1918) which occurred on November 11, --famously, the eleventh day of the eleventh month, at the eleventh hour.

    I'm old enough to have known a few who served during WWI, though they passed in the 1950s and 60s.

    Armistice Day - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia An interesting read.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    I know and I also knew a few vets from WWI, from our family and neighbors. Also had lot of WWII vets. As a kid, I love to sit back and listen to the vets compare their experiences.What a history lesson that was,never forget it.
