I stared at this empty reply box for a full 2 minutes, searching for the words that would convey my gratitude for all the Veterans, present, past and future. Somehow, " Thank You" seems insufficient, even tho it is more than any Vet has asked for.

As I get older, I have a better understanding of my parents reverence for those who serve their country. I will attempt to instill the same in my children, so they understand why Thank You can never be enough and hopefully teach their children the same.

Thank You Veterans, Thank You.

I agree that a thanks isn't enough to convey the gratitude that I feel, but it's all I have to offer here. The defense of Freedom and Liberty are a priceless blessing to those of us who reap the benefits. Thank you and may God bless you all for your selfless sacrifices!

I agree. Thank you Veterans. In spite of all the problems we are having these days, it is still the BEST country around. And it wouldn't be that way, or maybe even be a country at all, if not for all those brave men and women who answered the call to serve. Thank you.

Here is a link to my Veterans Day message.

If you know a Vet, buy him lunch , or Coffee, ………or a gift, tractor parts are always nice :)

If you know the family of one of our men or women who have fallen in foreign lands, take some time to visit them today and remind them that their sacrifice will never be forgotten.

As a Vet myself I'd like to say…Why Sunday?? I want a Tuesday off every year!!
All kidding aside, thank you for the "thank you's". It is more than enough that once a year our great Nation sets aside a day to remember the sacrifices we and our families have made.
Every American should feel special to live in a place do awesome that at any given time, at any given place, our sons and daughters will stand up and lay it all on the line to protect and preserve our way of life.
I hear every year someone mention us as a " police force" to the world. To that they usually add something to the effect of its not our place or problem.
Those of us who have been there know, protecting the innocent, helping the helpless & standing up for those who cannot stand up for themselves is The American Way. The defeat of evil, the righting of the wrong & proliferation of humanity is our duty & our privilege.

I am not a vet. I grew up in the Vietnam war era and knew more about protests than I did about freedom and threats to our country. I was married and had a child, a daughter before I was even out of high school.
Fast forward to a new era and into another century. I now have 4 children and one is a son attending high school. He seems to be some kind of weirdo or something. His friends are pretty clean cut and don't do drugs and stuff. Sure I don't like a lot of their music but that's OK. He's staying out of trouble and actually asks if they want to go out to do things. "Dad, I want to join the NJROTC in my school. They do all kinds of fun stuff." 2005, after 4 years of NJROTC in high school, he tells me he has enlisted in the U.S. Air Force with a guaranteed job in finance thanks to a recomendation by his commander in NJROTC. After his first term of 6 years, he is stationed at a base in his home state, Florida, He is close to his life long friends, still has that good office job and is now into another term, not sure for how long.
I am proud of my son, wish I had been a little more like him and yes, I still don't like most of the music he listens too. Although it surprised him last year when he was here and I was playing a video of Daryl Hall singing "Paylizer" with members of "Finger 11" on my computer.
Happy Veterans Day Mike and all the other Vets, past and present!
