  • Happy Veterans day.

    Happy Veterans day to all troops of the U.S Military.
    Thank you troops of years past, present, future, and those who have fallen.

    Spare a thought for the soldier who fights on unfamiliar terrain to defend your country. Living thousands of miles away from home is no mean achievement. On the battlefield, the soldier does not have the luxury to eat, sleep, or smile. He is constantly on the lookout for the enemy's bullets. Yet, he stoically marches on, without missing a beat.

    Every battle claims the lives of thousands of soldiers. Yet, we often find disabled soldiers neglected and alienated after they return from war. Many war veterans desperately need medical help and jobs.

    Recently, we saw Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit being released, after top-level talks between the Israeli government and the Hamas militant group bore fruit. Of course, this happened after Shalit spent five years in captivity.

    Perhaps this is a lesson for the rest of the world leaders. Soldiers are ordinary people who follow their call of duty. They should be respected, and treated humanely. On Veteran's Day, let us pay our respects not just to the soldiers who died for our country, but also to the soldiers of the world who did their job unflinchingly.



    As I always do when posting about the military here is that video I always post in military threads.

      Very well said.....As a vet I wanna say thank you.

      But every year I feel that Veterans day they leave out someone important. The Vets families. The children that have to go a year without a parent, the spouce that has to carry on while the other is delpoyed. They deserve as much thanx.

      When I would leave my wife would tell me how tough it would be having to do everything, yet in the back of her mind not knowing what I was doing, or if I was dead or alive. I will talk to my wife about little things about war. I tell her about how in Fallujah I really couldn't sleep for weeks......she had the same sleepless nights......When I was over there I thought nothing of the mission and my Marines......She had to do everything around the house and she had to work...All the while not knowing what I was doing and if I was ok.

      My wife and my kids are my rock and I never could have made it through without them.

      So today absolutely thank a Vet, but don't forget the sacrifices made by their families
      Thanx Blondie79 for the sweet Sig....Love it and I will rock it with pridesigpic

        Great post.

        I'm an AF brat and hubby was in the AF when we met and married. We live near Ft. Meade and we constantly see the women (and some men) who make those sacrifices. Some of the strongest people I've ever met.

        to our vets and their families.
