I send my silent Thank you to all who have protected us, stood for us, and did their brave duty even to the point of death.

As long as I can rise to my feet I will put my hand over my heart and applaud afterward when I hear our national anthem.

If I see a young serviceman, usually in fatiques now, I will quietly go up, give their arm a squeeze and say "Thank you!" They invariable respond with "Thank you Maam.

This is a wonderful country, the greatest place in the world, and we are allowed to live this beautiful life of liberty due to the servicemen and women who have protected and continue to protect our freedoms.

I attended a couple of years ago and left in disgust when the onlookers just kept talking and never got out of their plush chairs. It felt like a replay of my return from Vietnam. No matter what the idiots do, let us keep our pride in ourselves, our country, and our Mates who died, or were seriously injured, in service to this country.
As a Vet, I thank all Vets

I know it is past the official, "Veterans Day" memorial but I just finished watching a documentary entitled, "Section 60: Arlington National Cemetery".
Did anyone else happen to see this wonderful, heart rending tribute to our service people lost in the Iraq war and their families and loved ones struggling to deal with their losses? I highly recommend this documentary if it is televised again.
