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.' "
I took advantage of the offer Applebee's has on veterans day Free meal for veterans My waife had the steak and I had a bacon cheese burger It was also great sitting around talking to other vets from WW2 to pressent
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.
