Happy Veteran's Day

Otherwise known as Armistice Day, this is a day to remember all our veterans and thank them for their selfless service to our country. Here are my thank you's: To those that are still with us: Rex, Eric, Sam, Deja, Toshia, Jason, Zapata, Mike, Mark, John, Leif, Walt, Gene, Pops, and others too numerous to list here. To those that have passed but will never be forgotten: Dad, Uncle Bob, Uncle Hal, Uncle Russell, and Mark. I love and thank you all for your service!

Thanks for all who have served, and thanks to the parents, like you and Big D. who raised children willing to sacrifice for others.

Ann: In your last post - Happy Anniversary Babe - Jason put his Navy email. Who is Jason, where is he and would he accept email from other people just to pass the time?

Being a Vet, I know all to well that boredom is a bitch. Anything to keep your mind occupied was always welcomed.
