I don't know if this is appropriate to do in a "State" forum as opposed to a "General" one, but I would like to thank all the Veterans for their service to our country and to ask everyone to remember those who did not make it home.

My Dad was a WWII veteran and my husband is a Vietnam veteran - I made it a point to thank my Dad when he was a alive and I also make it a point to thank my husband, so wanted to extend my thanks to those in our new state of residence as well.

Please take some time this weekend to remember our veterans as you go about your holiday weekend activities.

To those who made it back, from whatever era - Welcome Home - To those who didn't make it back - You Are Remembered...............Thank you.....

Yes, thank you to all those who served our country with honor and courage.

On Monday, I'll be making my annual trip to the local National Cemetery to pay my respects. And I'll also be thinking about the Veterans Memorial Bridge in Littleton.

Thank you for this thread, windchimes03561, and thank you to those who already posted, and said it all. Our servicemen deserve our gratitude and our respect. If it weren't for them, the "Live Free or Die" motto would be meaningless, and our state (i.e. our condition) in this country would be far different. We all need to learn to appreciate and cherish what we have, and what our servicemen have fought for and many died for.

Thank you to all (and their families) hardly says it, but it comes from deep within.
