This Sunday past, we celebrated the fallen in all wars with the poppy appeal. The queen ,the archbishops and all attended. Its good to share a moment to think of the fallen. But i didn’t get to buy a poppy! I didn’t see anyone selling. There were less people than usual wearing them as well.
It was probably due to the credit crunch. Very sad, that people wouldn’t give to charity because their so greedy. Its this bloody consumer city mentality, their bunch of greedy children! Don't value their freedom because they'll sell it in a heart beat for some shiny new toy.

Have a good Rememberance Sunday.

My heartiest salute goes out to all who served and still serve in our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard, Air National Guard, Civil Air Patrol, Reserves, and, of course, Militia.

:thumb:

May we all keep Freedom and Justice alive in this nation so that our Servicemen and Servicewomen will never have served in vain.

For those who gave it all.
And for those who still go out in the morning and risk their life
and health for our universal principles of liberty, democracy, justice and freedom, no matter what flag they may wear on their arm. May you all return safe to your loved ones!

I once had a comrade,
you won't find a better one.
The drum was rolling for battle,
he was marching at my side
|: in the same pace and stride. :|

A bullet flew towards us
for him or meant for me?
It did tear him away,
he lies beneath my feet
|: like it was a piece of me. :|

´wants to reach his hand to me,
while I reload my gun.
"Can't give you my hand for now,
you rest in eternal life
|: My good comrade!" :|

Yes thank you for defending what freedoms we have left.

Unfortunately the average civilian may have to join our servicemen in that fight to preserve the rest of our freedoms still left, here at home against the tryanny that is raising it's ugly head in our country.

I was marching this morning with my Jrotc Battalion and there was a guy who was spewing stuff out loud saying like "9/11 was an inside job" and just things that would be horrible to say at veterans day parade i was in back of my formation near my platoon leader and he got really upset and wished that he wasnt in uniform so he can go **** with this guy, it was hard to resist to let him keep on saying what he was saying but hey if we did something that would make us hypocrites because we would be violating this *******s rights on freedom of speech aww the irony

They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.

Thank you all that are serving and have served.

I personally was not accepted when I tried to enlist back in the 70's, due to health reasons. It was always something that I wanted to do, but was not able to.

My son is presently serving in Iraq with the US Army Cavalry ... it scares me (and moreso my wife) to death, but at the same time, I admire him for being able to do something that I was unable to do.

So, be proud of your accomplishment and never forget that there are some of us that never forget ... ever.

Thank you again.

I spent last night in the most deserving company I could have imagined. First, my DW who deserves a medal for tolerating me. Second, a Navy medic with two tours in 'Nam. Third, a Army M-60 gunner vet of 'Nam. Fourth, a genuine three tour Marine MACSOGV from the early years of 'Nam.

We sat all evening visiting, drinking expensive liquor and enjoying fellowship. Could not have asked for a better USMC birthday/Veteran's Day. I felt some weight off my shoulders and a lightened heart.

Thank You Veterans for your sacrifices. These words here seem so small a contribution for the gratitude I have for our Veterans.
