Friends and Lumberjocks Family,

I hope no one is offended by this post, but being a Vet myself and remembering what it was like to be far away from home…

This seems like a very good thing, no matter how you feel about the war.

You can write your own message, or use one of theirs.

Very easy. Lots of choices.

Xerox is sponsoring “Thank You” Cards to our troups abroad. The cards were designed by school children around the US.

Go to “”: and you can pick out a thank you card that Xerox will print and send to a service person in Iraq. You can’t pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.

Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers need to know that we remember them …

Pass it on.

Thanks and Happy Veterans Day to all the Vets out there.

Well, as my father taught me, if this post offends you, then go read something else. Thanks for the heads up. We’re not in Iraq right now, but Canadians are currently fighting in Afghanistan and with November 11th coming up, any support that can be given to front line troops is a blessing.

Yes Sir, we need to say thank you to the man on the wall. If it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be doing this.
