Veteran's Day Thanks


Recommended Posts

We would like to take a moment to thank all the veterans who have served our country.

A Veteran is someone, who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up to, and including, their life. Regardless of personal political views. It is an honor to serve one's country, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer remember that fact.

We would also like to thank their family members as they have served right along side of the Veterans. As we the Veterans are deployed they have to take care of all of the bills, the kids and continue life not knowing if their loved one will ever make it home alive.

So, again we would like to thank all of the Veterans and their loved ones who have served our country.

Doug, Thank you for this post.


Myself serving 26 years in the military, I also appreciate your sentiments and thank you.

Everywhere I go,  when I see a service member in uniform, I thank them for their service as I do law enforcement and fire fighters.

We are all on the same team and serving the same country. It's a blessing to be a part of it.


The thing I think I appreciate more since I've retired is the support of the public. I've met alot of great folks that show their appreciation. And that sure hits home to the heart.


God bless America, the service members and their families, AND the public for their support!!!

Thanks for the family note too as I have a son still serving in the Army.

God Bless.

+ about 100


My Dad was in the Coast Guard in the latter stages of WW2 (made 26 trips across the Atlantic as crew of a troop transport ship), and then in the Navy on a destroyer for Korea.


It's a bit hard to tell, but that bottom flag in my avatar is an Army Nation Guard flag I flew while a nephew was in Afcrapistan (his name for the place).

I served 24 years in the Canadian Air Force and retired in the military community of Cold Lake, Alberta.  Put together this little tribute of thanks to our veterans and all those who serve in our great countries.


Love it and thanks for your service.
