    To all vets and current active military

    Thanks for all you have done for us. Thanks for your sacrifices and pain. Just want you to know you all are heroes.
    Also thanks to all those who face danger day in and day out on American streets (Police, Fire Fighters, EMT/Paramedics), and to those who vote. Thanks to all those that try to keep the ideals of the Founding Fathers alive.
    Thank God for all of you.

    God Bless America

    +1 to all the original post , and for my part
    (Police, Fire Fighters, EMT/Paramedics)
    ( which i have done all of over the years ) Thank you for your thoughts on this day .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    I will endorse the sentiment 100% - well said, and let us never forget any of them and what they do for us.

    it has been many years since I served, but I would go back in a split second if they would take me. My privilege of being a citizen in this great country can never truly be repaid in just one lifetime!

    +1 to what blacksan shared. When I went back in during DS1, my thought was, let's get this done now so my son won't have to. I find that most fellow vets have felt the same. My regret then was that they wouldn't let me jump out of airplanes any more. If I had the opportunity now to take the place of some other mother's son (or daughter), I'd jump at it. I still know a few tricks . . . . As Apollo Creed once said, "It's a shame we gotta get old, eh Stallion?"

    All the way!
    Cheers,

    Thank you all.

    I also give big thanks to those of wars and "police actions" in past.

    When I heard guys complain about the satellite internet being down or satellite phones or MRE's - I'd remember my Dad talking about how they didn't have any of those luxuries in WW1 or WW2 or many other military actions. I appreciated all the things we had. Could have been a lot worse...
    For God, Family and Country!
