November 11, 2009 – VETERANS DAY … Thank You for Your Service to Protect our Freedoms … Real American Hero’s

 

On this day we would like to say a special thanks to some true American Hero’s. Thank you to our Veterans!

VeteransDay

THANK YOU & GOD BLESS

Thank you to the men and woman who have served in the Armed Forces and the sacrifices that both you and your families have made to protect out freedoms. Thank you to those that are presently fighting abroad. There are never enough things that can be said for the appreciation that we can bestow upon all of your for your sacrifice and duty to the United States.

So often we take the past and present service of our brave men and women of the Armed Forces for granted. Know, that these individuals fight for peace, fight for freedom and fight for the very liberties that you an I enjoy every day.

Veterans Day_Remember

The next time you see a Veteran, please than them. Thanks for their service should never be relegated to just one day out of the year.

Michelle Malkin has a nice write up and we would be remiss if we did not provide links to the must read Veterans Day tributes from Milbloggers on this day.

Also a fantastic article from Black Five It’s About the Living. Part I here.

      Thanks to all fellow veterans out there for a job well done!

      I like Mike’s point of view…lol. Yep, basic training was a memorable experience, as well as serving in West Germany during the Cold War Era, and while the Iranian Hostage Crisis unfolded right before our very eyes. Way to close to the commies and Islamic extremist terrorists for me…

      God bless our brave men and women currently serving in our military to protect our country and all of the freedoms we enjoy daily, but so often take for granted!!

      5 liz…wow. You brought me a tear, and I am not easy to that.

      I was a pointman, for both infantry and long patrols. We were used so much it was inhumane. Though my type were volunteers, it took two years of toughman schools to get a front row seat. We expected of ourselves — to shine. In the arrogance of this statement I do have a story.

      Neither of my parents ever heard a one of my stories…not so much as why I extended onto another tour. And when I first came home, my old childhood church (some perfect attendance years) did ask me to speek to the church body of what war was like from my view — moments into it the minister came to the podeum and my side saying, “this does not seem appropreate for our church body.”

      I and numerous of those I served with wrote books. A handful have been on TV fairly regular over the decades. My book is for my own reasons not published, there are only 3 manuscripts of it, with my 2 girls having one copy each. Every few months I ask them if they have, “read it yet”? My accountant daughter just retold me this past weekend, “no, still working on it, it is so brutal, I am to the 3rd chapter, can’t believe that was you.”

      Shifting gears some. A former Marine who served in Afgansistan, serviced my heating and airconditioning units this past month. I told him, “I predict you have stories. I will try to share the experience with you best I can by listening to each thing you have to say, doing my best to be attentitive and mouth shut.” Got a tear out of that tough Marine.

      I told him, “I am a proud veteran, and other veterans or those who appreciate veterans (fully equal) — we are a fantastically bonded club.” Not lip service – those that care.

      Thanks to all those that give unselfishly for our freedoms.

      God Bless
