    It was and honor to serve. Freedom, is not free.

    I would like to request that you try and attend a veterans event in your community, take time to thank a vet an active serviceman. Also, our greatest generation is dying off fast, if you can swing it, try to get in touch with your local Honors Flight organization and make a donation to try a get as many of these men and women to Washington, to visit their memorial. Thanks. Honor Flight Network

    A very respectful and thankful day to all of our men and women who have served. You all have my utmost respect.

    Almost forgot to put my flag out this morning: Got out of my car, went back in, got it out and put it up. Who cares if I was late for work a couple minutes....some things matter more.

    BTW, Pops is still with us at 90 and a veteran of WWII, ETO. Will be making a special call to him later today.

    KickEm said it best. Thanks to all that served and helped make this country as great as it was.

    And not to make this a political post or anything but I have to relate something that basically made me sick on Saturday. I live in the state of Washington now and the National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance are done at every high school sporting event. It was quite a refreshing change from what we were used to when we first moved here and we still enjoy that it is done. Both my daughters were swimming in the District championships this past Saturday and they called all senior girls swimmers to recognize them (my oldest was one of the seniors called out). After they did the anthem and pledge. During both a senior swimmer from one of the schools turned her back on our flag. I wonder if she realizes how lucky she is to live in a country that would allow her to do this. It made me very sad but I respect she has the right to do this. But it was in bad taste and she can enjoy college in any country she wants to go to now. As so best stated:

    Thanks to all of you who have served our country!

    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Thanks to all who have served and to those who gave their lives for this Country.
    WW1, WW2, Korea,which was never called a war (Police Action) but it was a War, Nam, another not called a War and yet so many gave their lives for these non-called Wars. Deepest and humble admiration to them all.
