Veteran's Day

First, a Thank You to all veterans who have served in the past and are currently serving.

This photo portrays my feelings better than a thousand words could. Please take the time to also consider and thank their families. I've known a lot of them and as far as I'm concerned, they're vets, also.

Well said. I will just say that I concur and thank you for putting it so well. Thanks to those who serve.

A very powerful picture...

To all those who have served - or are currently serving - in any of the various branches of the United States' Military: THANK YOU.

I agree whole heartily. Our freedom has come at a tremendous cost for which I am forever grateful.

Lately I've become very disgusted with our governments in how returning vet's are treated and not given the support they need to go on living.

Wishing all my fellow vets and their families a safe and happy holiday.

And while on a related subject, happy birthday to all those devil dogs out there and to the ones who have gone before us. This squid salutes you.
