Both my grandfathers served overseas in WW 2. So many of us have ancestors who risked it all for us.

My heart felt thanks to all vets. My father was in the infantry in the Pacific during WWII. He's still pissed because he got shot in the leg (a minor wound actually) the day after the war ended by a Jap who didn't know the war was over. Because the war ended the day before my dad got no Purple Heart. That's what he's pissed about.

Vets, thanks again.

I am proud to say that I served under General George S. Patton III in Germany in the late 70's. Quite a guy and he carried his Daddy's Ivory handled Colt .45 "Peacemaker" pistol at his side.

I met my wife two years after I got out of the navy and we've been together for 15 now. Every Veterans Day she wishes me a Happy Veterans Day. No other family or friends have ever told me that. Makes me feel special having served for 7 years. And, I've taken every Veterans Day off of work since I got out 17 years ago.

To those serving and those who served, bless you.
