    We currently have our oldest daughter, and 3 grandsons under our roof while dad (our son-in-law) is in the sandbox and daily see the strains on our daughter and grandsons............
    Would you extend my thanks to them for their sacrifice for me?

    Good job being a real parent Paco.

    As a Navy Vet (Vietnam era), I pray daily for our troops and hiss at the horse's @$$es that treat our brothers (and sisters) like crap.

    May God bless you all, and thanks for your service!

    I can see my 7 yo Son as a Ranger, he is tough and meticulous. He has already pulled one of his own teeth when it was ready to come out, which would still freak out my 12 yo Son.

    The real cost of freedom is never cheap.We have liberal revisionist trying to rewrite history saying events never happened or it was greatly exaggerated !
    Time has a way of softening terrible past events as seniors become more forgiving in their advanced age.
