Freedom isn't free...thank you veterans! Heard about the tests to detect PANCREATIC CANCER? There aren't any! In Memoriam: #77 NYPD-SCA/Seattle Mike/Joe S./Vinny D./RTC...and God bless Donald Trump!

Ditto!

All Americans should thank and honor our war heros, past and present. Their sacrifices have maintained the freedom we love and cherish.

My hat is bowed to all veterans with a heartfelt Thank You!

Thank you veterans....

If you know a Veteran, someone in your family, friend of the family, neighbor, who served their country, take a brief moment from your day to thank them. Thank them for the sacrifice they made for the better good...

Veterans Day -

Served in the United States Navy from 1961 to 1987 and was proud to do so.

I've experienced an increased sense of pride in the younger troops. What a great bunch of guys and gals. We're all proud of you. God bless you on your day.

RE: Veterans Day -

I served in the Navy from 1991 to 1997 and although I didn't always enjoy everything about it I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Keep up the good work guys/gals and Happy Veterans Day to all.

Thank You Veterans

Happy Veterans Day To All The Vets Past And Present May God Bless

Freedom isn't free

Just a note to remind everyone that freedom isn't free. Many have paid the ultimate price defending our freedom. God bless all who have served this country! I served in the Navy from 1975-1978 aboard the USS John F. Kennedy and active reserves until 1980. Looking back I'd do it again. Just as I was getting off active duty the Iranian hostage situation occurred. I got lucky and never endured a conflict but we were ready if needed. Let's bring our troops back safely from Iraq!

Joseph P Kennedy

I served on the Joseph P. Kennedy Jr DD-850 from 1954-1958. During that tour visited many of the areas now embroioled in turmoil. Pakistan, Bahrein, Kuwait, Lebanon - interesting part of the world !
Proud to have served and very appreciative of our servicemen today !

Colleen and I watched "Flags of our Fathers" on Armistice/Veterans Day. We have a better appreciation for what the Marines went through to take that rock and for the repugnant nature of our politicians and bureaucrats.

I have heard that it is a fairly accurate movie.

Hi Ken,
My dad served on Joseph P. Kennedy Jr DD-850 as a reservist in the Korean War. The Joseph P. Kennedy Jr DD-850 is located about 45 mins from me at Battleship Cove in Fall River, MA. I have been on board a few times myself. My dad still wears a ballcap for that ship.. Small world eh? Here's a link to Battleship Cove:

Thanks, Vets

Although I was in during the Cuban Crisis and beginning of the Vietnam war, I was fortunate and missed the combat.

My Uncle was a different story. He survived the sinking of two carriers during WW2, the USS Hornet and the USS Princeton. I don't ever remember him talking about it, too painful I guess. These are the ones we need to thank. Without them we wouldn't be writing these posts; and we sure as h-ll wouldn't have free use of our GPS.

THANKS VETS!!

Nice

Veterans appreciate the 'Thank You' messages that people leave.

Regardless one's political affiliations, a silent or verbal acknowledgement means a lot.

Hey, my uncle served onboard that ship around the same time. His name is Phillip Lerma - I know there are thousands onboard any carrier, but hey maybe you knew him. Sorry I don't know what his rating was.

I served on the USS DRUM (SSN 677) from 89-93. Had a great time. Glad I went in, and glad I got out. Had a lot of great experiences and adventures.

Thanks to all our Vets

I was in Vietnam, my wife in Desert Storm, her brother in Iraq, my dad and mom at Pearl Harbor, and my uncle went down on the Arizona. To all that have served, I salute you.

Sorry I didn't know your uncle. When the ship sailed with the airwing aboard it contained 5500 men.. I was an Electrician's Mate and worked mostly on the flightdeck. When I was getting out of the Navy there were guys getting out at the same time and I never saw them in over 2 years on board the same ship! Pretty amazing eh?

I figured it was a long-shot, but ya never know.

I can't imagine serving with all those people onboard.

My submarine sailed with ~100 people or so. We all knew each-other a little TOO well. The good thing about that is that when we would pull into a port, we wouldn't double the population of the city. smile We would leave the boat and go partying, and rarely ran into other sailors. What this meant, crucially, is that there were plenty of American loving girls to go around. grin

Only served briefly, at just

Only served briefly, at just over 3 years (1990-1993), myself. Like others have stated, would do it again in a heartbeat.

Military Service

I tip my hat to all Veterans.

I served 20 years in the Canadian Armed Forces (1961-81), out of which 7 years in Germany and a UN Peace Keeping tour in Cyprus in 1969, also did many other trips to Egypt and Cyprus.

Hey, good to hear from you. Sounds like you were in the AF, too.

I was in the 810th Radar Squadron in Winston-Salem, NC. We had the easy job, watching the skies for the troop carriers heading for Florida. It was a tense time, but also had its comical moments. One couple found out that was not the time to 'park' near a Military Base ... "Caught with their pants down", both literally and figuratively speaking.

Good to hear from you too. At the time I was stationed at Hamilton in the 41st Air Rescue Squadron and flew into Homestead in October '62 to cover the Cuban overflights and all the aircraft coming into Homestead. Thought the whole State of Florida was going to sink with all the military equipment and troops that came in for the blockade.

Really a tense time and sooo close to WW III.

For The Fallen (Canadian and American)

The Act Of Remembrance

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.

And may we ever pray

" Lord God of Hosts,
Be with us yet,
Lest we forget,
Lest we forget."

ps Thank a Vet or better yet buy them a coffee

Thanks to all who have served!

Thank you!!!

A Veteran is someone, who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up to, and including, their life. That is beyond honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer remember that fact.

Thank you veterans for all you have and are doing for us all.

Thanks

Thanks from all of us to all of you veterans. Raaw !!!!!!!!!!

Happy Veterans Day and heart

Happy Veterans Day and heart felt thank you.

It was an honor

It was an honor to serve. To all of the newer vets out there, we older vets are thinking of you. To the greatest generation, the WWII vets, you guys (and ladies), are the best. A special thank you goes out to you. (By the way, Golden Corral is letting all vets eat free today from 1700 hrs. to 2100 hrs.; I believe those times are correct.)
