I'd like to take this time to thank all the veterans for their service

Thanks John -- being a vet

But you are a little early --In 2012, Veterans Day falls on a Sunday, so Monday, the 12th of November is considered a federal holiday.

I stand corrected. I meant Memorial Day.




Still want to thank the vets if that's OK.

Thanks for the sentiment John!

Tomorrow I will remember and honor those of my brothers and sisters who gave all.

I will especially think of those 58,000+ of my generation who didn't make it back home alive.

Yeah, today is the day reserved for those who didn't make it...but every day is a good day to thank a Veteran!

I agree with mickey, every odd day should be Veterans day, every even day should be Mother Day

Thank you John. This morning as I do every Memorial Day I will go to our town's Veteran's Memorial for the service. I will wear my old dog tags in honor of those friends I lost back in '68 and '69 while serving our country in one of America's most unpopular wars. Like most Marines, I believe that as long as I honor and remember them, they will never be truly dead but will live forever. I will never forget and will honor them until I join them.

How can any person or group of people stand up to a solder and tell him to stop being a solder, HE DESERVE THE SAME RESPECT THAT WE WILL GIVE TO A KING , when they spit on the returning solders , WAS THEY TAKING THE SIDE OR THE ENEMIES
