    took my son (amphib Navy) out to breakfast along with all three grandsons today. glad to see a lot of older guys with WWII and Korea ball caps on too, shook a lot of hands, made sure the boys understood that this is a day to honor our veterans, not to celebrate shopping the sales or just another excuse to not have school. They aren't going to learn it in the sorry excuse we have for public education today so they need to hear it from those who lived it. We owe so much to all who served and made our nation great. And Zapato, you are right on, my wife and I (47 years together) often have said we knew if we could stay the course during the deployments when we were first married, we'd make it for the long haul.

    From one veteran to another I would like to thank all of my brothers and sisters out there who served or are currently serving.

    Very well said Zapato! Let's remember all of those Vets and their families. Being a cop was nothing like what the guys in the service did. We still had our donuts!

    To all my brothers and sisters, past and present. Thanks you for your sacrifice.
    To the families of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, my heart goes out to you.
    To all my ally counterparts, I raise my glass to you and your day of remembrance.

    To those who still serve... Specially on foreign soil... Keep your head and your ass down and come home safe. That is an order! This way you can celebrate with us next year.

    A simple "thank you" is not near enough for the debt we owe our service men & women. But right now it's all I have to offer. So, thank you for our protection & freedom. Hope all of you that serve/have served have had a blessed & great day.
