To our Vets and from our Family to Yours

You have made so many sacrifices our our family and country. Freedom is not free and I for one appreciate you.
One of the best ways to thank our vets is to write your representative in congress and tell them you don't want veteran benefits cut. We are handing out money to people who have never done anything for our country and treating our veterans like beggars. Tell congress you want those who put their lives on the line for our country to get benefits before anyone else.

I'm a Korea Vet and while at the VA hospital yesterday saw a Korea Vet (wearing cap) with a recent leg amputation waiting to get a cup of coffee in the cafeteria. I offered my help in getting his coffee and also paid for his breakfast. It made my day to help a fellow VET. My medical problem was nothing compared to his or many others in similiar situations.

We should ALL offer some thanks to those who served and if anything...buy them a breakfast.

At times we concentrate a lot of our veterans and that is great. I just thought I also share that those behind the warrior also deserve some recognition like this spouse saying good-bye the day before he is laid to rest.
