Veteran's DAy

Veteran’s Day, a day to honor the guys who are putting their lives on the line and the guys who are behind the lines supporting them.
There are many who do not think the veteran deserves anything, this is America. You can say and feel what you like, and no one will shoot you (legally).
Personally I think the Vet deserves honor for his or her service and dedication to our great nation. The American Soldier, Sailor, Marine and Coastie fall under, and understand the “Code of Conduct of the American Serviceman”
Article Number one is:
"I am an American fighting man. I serve in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense."
There are more articles but this one says a lot, “ I am prepared to give my life in their defense.”
Don’t argue with the Vet about the right or wrong of any war that is not his call, that is the call of the President and Congress. He/She goes where the orders say. Millions have given the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy this freedom.
If you did not approve of WWI, WWII, the Korean War, Viet Nam War, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. Don’t yell and fuss at the vet, he was/is doing only what he was ordered to do. Write your congressman, don’t yell at the vet.
I pray for the protection of our troops, and pray for a positive end to the conflicts.
No matter what you think of George Bush, I think he is right. If we allow free reign in Afghanistan we will see more terrorists trained there. Their goal is to terrorize the infidels, and in their opinion, that is us. I do think it could be handled differently, but me and thousands of others think we know best. BUT WE do not have the facts the president and congress have.
So please give honor to the Vet, he is doing his job. If you want the active duty guys home. Write your congressman, but give honor where honor is due.
Thanks for coming this way.

PS:
I didn't know if Vegas my youngest grandson had learned hiscolors yet, so I decided to test him. I would point outsomething and ask what color it was. She would tell me andwas always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, he headed for the door, saying, "Grandpa, I think you should try to figure out some of these,yourself!"
PS2: So Glad we got a good report about IDA, from the Gulf Coast.

Thank you BROTHER for your years of Service to our Country. Many forget our boy's Service to
this great country is why we have our freedom and say snd do as we please. If they dont' like
this Country go where they are controlled. Two older brother, Cousins and Uncles served our Country. As a Child I can remember how handsome they looked in their uniform when they
could come home. SALUTE TO ALL THE VETERANS.....
GOD BLESS THEM

I am late getting on here due to circumstances, but yet=s every veteran deserves our thanks. I saw a rerun of the Fort Hood memorial and such senseless act. I didn't want any wars either Jack, but thank you for serving your country for those of us who reap benefits of all of our service men both active and inactive.

Thank you for your "Service to our Country"
*(SALUTE)
Counting down till we leave, its 28 degrees now at 9:30PM and the car is covered with FROST already, supposed to dip down to 20 by morning, BUT we had a beautiful Veterans Day, sunny, about 50 degrees and hardly any wind at all.
Glad the Storm missed you!!!

Thank you Jack for serving our country and to your family for their sacrifices too. My hubby served in the Vietnam War. He was in the Army. Take care, Sheila

I just need to add , I honestly could not make that call as to end the war and pull out or finish the job. If the Russians could not win in Afgahnistan, how can we with our troops so many repeat tours. You are a veteran and I am a mom and this may sound selfish but I am glad I have no one in service at this time. I truly would be torn. I do respect you as a veteran and I am not arguing, just speculating.
