    Wishing all Vets

    a happy and safe Veterans Day. Darn it, I 'gotta work. But I will be remembering many, my father above all. He was a patriotic Navy coxswain, present at Normandy, starting 6June44. RIP, Nelson, and, Thanks!

    Thanks ;) But Most don't do it for thanks..... I seen it as a duty to serve and an Honor above anything else I have done in my life.

    Had a Great Corp Birthday today as well....

    +1 It's not for thanks or glory it's because we love this country.

    Thank you very much for the Veteran's Day wishes. I too would like to pass on my thanks to those that served before me, those I served with and those that will serve after me.

    Because of those on watch my family and I can sleep well tonight.

    God Bless you and God Bless America.

    Be Safe,

    NosaM
