I do appreciate your recognition to those of us that are serving those that served in the past.

I do give you the reply I give back from people that thank me:
Thank you for your support. Your job is just as important. Without your support we would not be able to do the work we do. You are just as part of the team I call "America". So I get and and salute you back.

You have a great day.
El Amigo

Surprised no one thought to post this today. Want to send a special shout out to all the brave men and women who participated in D-Day. Your sacrifice is greatly appreciated and won't be quickly forgotten.

There is a D-Day thread over in the Other Topics forum - thought more people might see it there. Heartily second your thanks to our veterans, here and gone.

I do some volunteer work for our Vets and numerous times our wonderful Vets have turned it around and thanked me when I say "Thank you for your service." (It never fails to make me cry because they have done so much yet they are so kind and appreciative of what little I do.)

I get to thank my Coastie in person this week. His plane has arrived and we are staving off sleep waiting for them to arrive. Have not seen my Coastie or DDIL in over a year. A week won't be long enough.

Whenever I am driving and see edvidence of a vet in front of me, ie license plate, sticker of some type, I always give a silent "Thank you".

After 40 years of marriage to a Vietnam vet, he recently told me something that he thought I knew, but this was the first time it ever came up.

He had about 20 days left in the jungle before he was to be picked up, and one day a helicopter flew in and called out three names to be taken out. He was one of them. He said to the pilot that he still had 20 days left. The pilot said your name is here, do you want to go or not? Of course he did.

I have reflected on that since and feel that had he stayed he would have not have come home. He was the radio man. Something unusual took place that day.
