I tried to enlist fresh out of Highschool, But three Knee surgerys when I was 16 Kept me from it. Recruiter said it was no issue but a month later I was told No Go.

I have the greatest respect for all the men and women who serve our country past present and future. A huge thank you to all of you. May all who are serving now come home safely to thier families. And the ones who never made it home your sacrafice will never be forgotten.

The most humbling day of my life was when I visited the Vietnam Memorial, when My kids are old enough to understand the meaning I will take them there.

Thank you again.

Rusty, I got to the wall quite a few years ago. It was an awesome experience and one I will never forget. Would like to go back some day, but probably won't get to. I give my thanks to all serving before and after me.
