    I know this is a political forum and we spend most of our time screaming at each other and calling each other names. But in reading the posts over the last two years, it is evident that many, many posters on this board are vets.

    Regardless of their political leanings, veterans put aside their personal comfort and place their very lives in jeopardy to serve their country. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for what they have done and what they continue to do for this country.

    The country as a whole is better off for your service..

    Thank-you

    this is very nice. i think about our troops and veterans every day. (especially when the westboro "church" rears it's ugly head).
    i wrote a piece on my blog one time about the simple act of thanking someone in uniform when i saw them. the cynics found lots of reasons why that was insincere, or phoney. i've never thanked a vet that didn't appreciate the acknowledgement, or was even a little surprised.
    thanks r.w., your heart is in the right place, when it comes to american veterans, we can never thank them enough..

    They shall grow not old,
    As we that are left grow old,
    Age shall not weary them,
    Nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun,
    And in the morning
    We will remember them.

    Veterans Day seems to be an afterthought sometimes and assumed to be a poor sibling of Memorial Day when it comes to honoring our military.

    Our veterans are much more than a bunch of old men (young men and women now) parading around in uniforms too small for them. Each and every one has made a personal sacrifice for this country. While most Americans, myself included, took the easy way out and chose a civilian career, our veterans were willing to step up and give their service to this country.
