Veterans Day 2009...

This posting will only be one of a gazillion posts honoring Vets on Veteran's today. Being a vet, today, I welcome the words, "Thank you for your Service." For me and others in my era, it was not always that way.

Having fought in an unpopular war that had our Country divided, we were looked down upon, spat upon, ridiculed, and verbally abused. "War monger!" "Baby killer!" were the  welcome cries for many veterans of my era. Rarely was heard, "Thank you for your Service."

Sticks and stones can break your bones but words can really hurt you. Even though these cut through to the very fabric of my soul, I held my head high. In my heart of hearts, I knew that I served my Country well. Like soothing save on a terrible wound, I would have welcomed the words, "Thank you for your Service".

I was Honored to be able to give these folks and generations to come the freedoms that they have and take for granted. 

Pride that so many others along with me did what so many chose not to do. We put it all on the line for our Country. Many, paid the ultimate sacrifice.

America and Americans are not perfect. Current personnel and Veterans alike take an oath to serve and defend this Nation with their most precious possession - their lives. Maybe that is why they call it "The Service."
Think about it! Would YOU be willing to do this? Take a moment and thank a vet. Tell them from your heart of hearts, "Thank you for your Service."
