I know it makes me sick, I think of all the programs and services that are cut but there are $$BILLIONS$$ being poured into this shithole!!!

    Served in the US Army 71-73 Medical Co, BAMC, Ft Sam Houston, San Antonio, TX, Never made it out of country, but did unload burned-up heros from 'Nam from transports at Lackland and took them to BAMC.

    Dad served in the Pacific in WWII. Ran over a land mine with his 6X6. Two POW's died, he broke his leg. His older brother was serving in the Army Air Corp, ferrying bombers to Europe, died in a plane crash. His younger brother served in Germany in the 50's.
    Dad got home on his mother's birthday, went on to raise 4 kids, worked 42 years as a pipefitter in an oil refinery, now retired.

    He taught me to work with my hands and head. I firmly believe he could build a house from scratch. Wire it, plumb it, paint, everything.

    To all our veterans, thank you!
