Thank you for your service to our country. We wouldn't have our freedom if not for you.
I am a proud veteran and appreciate your kind words. I met a gentleman, monday in Publix. who served on board the ship which MacArthur signed peace treaty. Introduced myself, shook hands and thanked him for his service. If you are lucky enough to meet one, feel honored.
I use to go to the dog track and horses all the time in Fla with a co-worker and good friend who served in Korea..He's dead now but he was the unluckiest man alive and with a temper when he lost,all the time,but when the band played the National Anthem at the tracks he would stand at attention just like he did while serving..Guess it was in his blood..Great guy but a loser and with a temper..Not a good mix if you was his friend and with him all the time..RIP..
To all my fellow veterans I salute you for a job well done. We have given so much and have asked for so very little. I salute the veterans that gave their lives so that others may enjoy the things that so many people take for granted. We all paid a price. So my fellow comrades, I wish all of you a peaceful veteran’s day.
