We in this country owe a huge debt to our armed forces personnel, both living and dead, that can never be paid. All I can do as a single citizen of the United States is to say thank you, and tell you that I will impress upon my son the knowledge of your sacrifices so that he, in turn, might do the same with his children. God bless you all.

beat me to it, i was gonna create a thread titled "who's getting free food today?"

but thank you, hearing thanks from complete strangers always made me feel better. the military can really suck sometimes...

who cares about resale value? this is an outback, not getting something else til at least 200k miles!

i have a few parts that aren't supposed to be there...

tired of a sore elbow from the hard plastic armrest? get a cover here http://www.redlinegoods.com/cgi-bin/...r&id=1&aid=774

...and we have plenty to be thankful for!

I thank every military veteran I encounter every day. I've normally said 'thank you for your service', but now in some cases I've learned to add 'welcome home' - specifically to Vietnam Veterans, because unlike many other conflicts, they very often were not received in a very welcoming way when they came back. Picked that up from a coworker who is himself a veteran.

My car warms the rear window, mirrors, wipers, my butt, and my heart - because I WILL get there!

It was a different time back then. Anything to do with that conflict was best not discussed... People changed the subject or left the conversation and maybe even room when they found out you're a VVet that actually served in theater... VVets quickly learned to not volunteer that info about themselves - it was like a demerit and could adversely impact your chances of being able to socialize and get a job.

So, I'm surprised and grateful to see how vets are treated today because a number of them have been to **** and back both physically and mentally.

I remember reading a quote a while ago, might even be a famous one, so apologies if I butcher it. It went something like,

"....at some point in their life every service man, woman and veteran wrote a check to the United States of America for service up to and including their life to defend it....."

Whenever I see a person in uniform it comes to mind. The perspective is very sobering. It goes to the very core of our country--Freedom-- and the price we pay to keep it. To all those in the service, veterans and especially those who gave their life for our country. Thank You

I'm not happy....till you're not happy

It's never too late to say Thank-you. I'm not a Veteran; however, my Uncle and Step Father are Vietnam Vets. My Grandfather was a SeaBee in WWII and my Father was in the Korean War. I think most Veterans genuinely appreciate a Thank-you, any time of the year....... especially from strangers.
Thanks Again!
