I received this email today. Yes I am bragging on my son:
The younger one dropped by to say Happy Veteran's Day also.Dad,
I've realized that I've never said anything to you on Veterans Day. It's because I didn't really know what to say, but I guess there is only one thing to say to a veteran on Veterans Day.
Thank you. Thank you for your service. Thank you for making it out of Vietnam when many others didn't. Thank you for being stationed all over the Pacific and bringing your expanded world view back with you. Thank you for retiring in your early 40's so you could be around to help raise xxxxxxx and I.
Thank you for being a great dad.
Happy Veteran's Day to all.
"Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"
Great kids!! You should be very proud of them.
Duty, Honor, Country...MEDIC!!!

Very heartwarming indeed.

Thanks for your service Tiwee (sir), so that the torch could be passed on so that others could carry on the good fight for this nation. I have no children, and am about to become an uncle for the first time while deployed. I hope that in the future my children, nieces and nephews can look at me with pride as a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan.
Looks like you did a good job raising your children, congrats.

Government is out of control
"If gun laws in fact worked, the sponsors of this type of legislation should have no difficulty drawing upon long lists of examples of crime rates reduced by such legislation. That they cannot do so after a century and a half of trying -- " Sen Orrin G. Hatch
