    Veteran's Day

    A big huge thanks goes out to all the vets. Especially those of you forum guys!
    I'm at the hospital today and have seen several older gentlemen wearing their Vietnam or Naval ship hats. I've said a big thank you to all of them.

    Thanks to all the current, retired, and former vets. Including our foreign service vets, we couldn't complete the mission without you.

    On Friday 11/2 I was fortunate enough to visit the Viet Nam memorial in DC for the second time. It was no less emotional for me then as it was the first time I visited. This time I was able to find the name one of my two high school buddies who were killed in Viet Nam. Brought back a lot of memories, both good and bad.

    Thank you knifenerd. Come by the shop when you are able.

    David,

    You and the vets from Vietnam had to put up with a lot of bad feelings regarding that war that never should have been projected back at you not to mention the conditions in country. While I disagree with a lot of the Iraq / Afghanistan politics, those feelings will never be projected on the people who serve our country. I will always have a thank-you for any service person current or retired.
