Veteran's Day 2018

Today is Veteran's Day today in the US. I would like to say thanks to all of our US and Canadian Veteran's for their service and sacrifice to country! Thanks to all our active duty members and the friends and family that support them!

Veterans Day

There is not a day goes by that I do not think about veterans. I am reminded by flags waving, our freedoms, and buildings, plazas, and many other references. In my home town we have a veterans memorial building, ( with an incredible Grant Wood designed stained glass Veterans tribute,) veterans memorial plaza, tennis center, and baseball park, I am looking forward to reading a new book I heard about this morning called “ Spearhead”. It is about the life of a 3rd armored soldier and his experience in Cologne, Germany. This interests me because my father was in that city with that Unit when Cologne was taken by the allies in 1945. The sacrifices made by our veterans and their spouses should be remembered each and every day by us all. And don’t forget the Canadian forces and their contributions.

Hi: Iowa Dave... Thankyou!!! As a member of the UN. peace keeping force in Cyprus, my brother always said "Your prospect on life changes when you're held at gun point, on your knees, with your hands tied behind your back". Alf

At least veterans get respect today. When I served in the late 60’s, the word on post was to not wear your uniform into town or you would get the **** beat out of you. I wish some damn hippies would have tried it. Loren

I hear you, Jim! I remember my first morning after arriving from MEPS Oakland to NTC San Diego. Our Company Commander woke us up at 4:30 am by hurling a metal trash can down the aisle between our bunks and yelling something to the effect of "Rise and shine you maggots!"

Over 40 years ago and I remember it to this day.
