    With Veterans Day on the 11th, I/we should take the time to thank ALL Veterans for their service to our Great Land. We are Free due to their sacrifice. Many do not receive the respect and honor they deserve. Thank you. sgrip65

                                A big thank you to all my Veteran brothers and sisters.

                                21 years Air Force Ground Radio Maintenance. Here's a long ago picture after an incentive ride in a T-37. The pilot allowed me to do an aileron roll. Great day!

                                          Although I do know of a guy that quit at exactly this time in order to prevent his ex-wife from getting a single solitary dime.
                                          Never underestimate the power of poisoned, vindictive heart!

                                            Thank you to all Veterans. Hit home yesterday at the hospital I noticed a fellow's decorated cap, I followed younger family member pushing him to the cardiac department, Viet Nam Veteran, when the moment came to say thank you for all contributed then and after, he said bluntly "it put me in this wheelchair," all I could say was I wouldn't know what that feels like, sir, but thank you.

                                            And why don't we recognize all our service members more?
