    This was sent to me attached to a letter from a friend wishing me a great Remembrance Day (Veterans Day) I thought it summed up being a member of the military very well. "A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to The Goverment of Canada for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'

    That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.' "

    Much respect to those who were willing to lay down their lives for those they held dear.

    That's not a big deal. The big deal is these folks are willing to lay down their lives for everyone OTHER than those they hold dear. Now that's something.

    Veteran's day always pisses me off. I remember how it was after coming back from Nam.

    yeah, my dad was a Vietnam combat corpsman attached to the Marines. 5 tours in Vietnam. He wasn't happy with the reception either. He gives thanks to his brother Marines. Even though he is a Navy Corpsman he will always be a Marine.
