I’m not sure I could say it better—thanks Jim for this post, reminding us that freedom isn’t free, and our brave men and women in the military deserve our thanks and gratitude for giving everything they own to protect and defend our great nation.

Thanks Jim, I was Signal Corps, Vietnam 68-69. I was there against my will. It took 15 support people to keep one man in the field. With my MOS I could have ended up a field radio operator. I thank my luck I dug ditches for buried cable.

It was a pretty dumb war as most of them are.

Many Thanks. It’s good to see a large portion of the population appreciating Veteran again. Wasn’t the case when I was in the service. Fact when I can home from VN we were told it would be better if we didn’t wear our uniform when we traveled home on leave. Course, being a Marine, there was no way I was NOT going to wear my uniform. I had do problem and fact was treated very well. I think a lot of the negative stuff was caused by the god old news media giving the wrong people all the attention again.

I especially like to go out of my way to thank a service person today because remember they are all volunteers. I was one that though an all volunteer military would not work. I solute them all.

Thank you for your service and sacrifice Gene

Jake thank you too for your sacrifice and service.

Paul Thank you for your great sacrifice and service,It is a total embarsment when I think of the way our boys in the service were treated when they returned from VN ,in my opinion the people that spite on our troops should have been tried for treason,and people like Jane Fonda should have been locked up and the key thrown away.
It’s ok to detest war but never never treat our heroes and defenders like crap.

I served in the Air Force from 1987-1993 working on E-3 Sentry’s (AWACS). I am humbled by the outpouring of gratitude from people today. However, I don’t feel the need to be thanked. The military did much more for me than I was able to for anyone else. Therefore, I thank all of you that supported me and my colleagues during my time in the service, and for the respect that is shown to all vets.

I am inspired by the contributions of vets from WWII and before; absolutely amazing. The sacrifices made by the folks in the Korean and Viet Nam eras are humbling. The professionalism of the comrades in arms today is inspiring. I salute you all!

This might not be appropriate but I feel the need to say something about our “active” military. We have an Army base not far away. And we have a Air National Guard base not far from there. In our previous house we had a reserve base there as well.

The point I want to make is that I encounter hundreds of our active military people every month. I have yet to see any one of them fail to hold a door for me or fail to say “please” or “thank you”, always including “Sir” or “Ma’am”.

I screwed up last week. Last week I was in a convenience store and was surrounded by about 25 of them buying sandwiches and drinks. After the fact, I realized I should have told the manager to ring them all up at once and tell me how much I needed to pay. It won’t happen next time.

I’ve visited the Normandy beaches/surrounding museums and area. I still get the spine tingles when I recall that visit. My grandfather was WWI, my dad was Korean Navy. A very good friend’s father was WWII (and snuck in a camera to one of the concentration camps he helped liberate…those pix not suitable for many).

Just needed to add that.

Have your say...
