Thanks to all our vets....past and present.

We take our freedom for granted. We should not. Thanks to those who have fought and sacrificed for what we have.


Darn...hoping this :patriot: would be in thread title. Thanks Hawk for fixing this!

we should be thankful everyday, but it's nice to have a special day dedicated to remind each and everyone of us the sacrifices the military personnel make.

And don't forget to thank the Military Wives and husbands.

Their job is just as tough as those who serve.

My father and most of his brothers fought in WWII. My father was not old enough but like many of his time, lied to get in. He was in the Navy for 21 yrs. My family was lucky...everyone came home. My mother's brother served 2 tours in Vietnam, another served in the Korean War.

I do not even want to try to imagine what their experiences were like. I do want to appreciate everyone who has fought for our country...from the beginning until now.

Sorry to hear that, bro.

Yes, it does happen. When I lived on post, you knew when a unit was either mobilizing or on a FTX because the line of military wives going to the NCO club looked like ants.

Basketball game on an aircraft carrier is cool. My father retired on the USS WASP when I was 5. I remember that ship. They are impressive.

The Wasp was stationed in Boston. My father was there when I was 1-5 yrs old. I remember going on that ship. (Unfortunately I do not remember the Red Sox games he took me to.) The naval housing we lived in was across the street from the ocean. I did not know how special that was. (Understand naval housing is gone from there now...sure it is prime property).

My father was supposed to retire at 20 yrs....then there was the Cuban missile crisis. He had to stay another year. I do not thing he minded...he loved the Navy.

My father never talked about the war. He died 23 years ago. I wished I had asked him about it. Guys of his time just did not talk about it. Maybe none of them do.

I will say again...cannot imagine what they went through, or the courage it took to do what they did...or those who do it for us today.

I appreciate everyone who has served or is serving now.
