    I, too, was proud to serve, although I got my release from active duty before Vietnam.

    One thing we all can do is to make sure that the Jane Fonda's of the Country, and her ilk, are never again permitted to publicly disrespect our troops without paying a heavy price, in terms of non-violent responses, for their actions.

    US Navy, September 10, 1986 to December 15, 1993. Medically discharged due to knee injuries incurred onboard ship in Feb 1992.

    Desert Shield / Storm Veteran. Combat Veteran Jan 19, 1991 in the Persian Gulf.

    As a Vet, I would like to say Thank You for your Thank You to us. It is nice to hear it now and then and nice to know that there are still people out there who appreciate what we all did. Every Vet counts as much as every other, peace time service or war time.

    Great Lakes eh MIke - well wife and I are gonna be there April 6 for step son's graduation. He has in a short time developed into a remarkable young man.

    He goes from there then to Pensacola and is probably gonna be aircrew if he follows his choices. He and I have had 6 years of friction - punk vs step dad :wink ........ but this is changing him into a real man with responsibilities - the transition is amazing. We are very proud.

    Well as a Canadian, I am glad that you guys are doing your best over there in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention some the guys taking part in the “East African big game hunt” in Southern Somali!

    Also a thank you to the aircrews, field hospitals and the hospital staff in Germany who have all done a wonderful job caring for Canadians wounded in Afghanistan.

    Likely another thread, but anyone thought how ½ million + new combat veterans are going to change US society?

    Memorial Day, a Time to Remember

    Hi again everybody!

    With the weekend of remembrance now upon us, I thought I'd try to reactivate / resusitate this thread once again to say thanks.
