    Okay, I’ve been thinking....Yeah, I know I could get hurt doing that.

    I’ve been thinking of posting something in honor of Memorial day and our fallen. I’ve looked and just can’t find anything I really like.

    So, I’ve decided to just say, Let’s have one for all the Veterans, past and present, active, those fallen and those not. Let’s have one today, one or two tomorrow, and the same on Monday. In their Honor...

    AND NEVER FORGET!

    Thanks Guys!:beer: :beer: :beer:

    I raise my toast to all who have served, fought and died in the service of their country, the United States of America... salute...

    [​IMG]

    And to my brother, God rest his soul, for his two tours in Viet Nam, who could no longer fight the demons in his memory, and took his own life...
