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.

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?

It was some of the best times of my life, it has it’s down side but you get to do and see things that you could never do any other way.

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.
It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.
