Veterans Day 2008

gotw-400x300Thank you veterans for sacrificing for our country and its freedoms.  Without you we would not be the nation we are today.  We salute you and the willingness to serve in peace time and in war.  Thanks for leaving your families to go alone to foreign fields for months on end.  We appreciate your willingness to be in harm’s way to ensure that we remain a free nation, with freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom to vote.  You are not overlooked for your efforts in the war on terror and the missions in Afghanistan and Iraq.  You are not forgotten for the past wars and protecting our home country.  Thanks to all who have served in years past and who currently serve.  Our prayers are with you.  God bless America!

  1. Your words certainly are rewarding to read and I thank you for you comments. Personnaly, I never wanted accolades or commendations and have a problem accepting compliments. When I retired from the military I even declined having a parade. However, returning from Viet Nam and being cursed and called Baby Killer was a bit much. I am now able to receive appreciation such as yours and say that it honestly feels good. My thanks to you, sir. It now feels good. Bill Streepy
