I would like to give a heart felt salute to all my Vet Brothers here, regardless of what branch of the service you served. I know there are a quite a few of us here. I know we cover the periods of several wars.
Even though I got out some 37 years ago, I still remember my brothers in arms that didn't make it home alive. I remember seeing the Viet Nam Memorial in DC some 20 years ago, all 3 of my kids young and not understanding why they saw their father crying for the first time in their lives. It was hard to walk the whole distance of the Wall, but I did.
Might sound odd, but I don't ever want to see it again. I paid my respect to the souls of some 55,000 plus.
We need to remember all our vets, the ones serving now in unpleasant wars.
