    Default Happy Veterans DAY!

    To all my fellow brother and sister Vets. I sincerely wish you a happy veterans day.

    And to all the Vietnam Veterans who (especially my convict) who were never "properly" welcomed home……let me tell you welcome home. America is finally giving you the honor you deserve. It's a shame that it has taken sooooooooo long. Today, for the first time, I saw a story about
    Vietnam veterans being included in "honor flights"!!

    Saw that here locally too.

    But I though Veterans Day was tomorrow?

    I thank you all, and God Bless America!

    Yep! The 60's was a strange decade. It's when the worms started crawling out from under the flat rocks. Didn't expect much out of the public as I knew what was going on. My family welcomed me home with open arms - that's what mattered to me. "Hanoi" Jane and her minions can KMA. As for my vet brothers I hope you have a wonderful day. You earned it. HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY!!!!!!!!!!

    Ahmen!!!! Family's acceptance is so very important!!! That was no issue with my convict….His dad was a WWII vet.
    I'm retired AF but I was just a little bit too young for Vietnam. However, even in high school (that was at the height of the Vietnam protest were going on) I told all my friends; Look,,,,,if we go to war, We go ALL the way or not at ALL. To me that is the rule of engagement!!!!
    I know many WWII vets. they did NOT have all these FEEL good RULES….War is HELL (not that I've experience that)…you JUST have to get the job done.

    My wishes are that ALL Vets have a happy day and that they are at peace with their choices.
    If you are every in conflict I don't think that the choices are easy.
    In one way it's a "little" like making choices like a sheep dog.

    The second last thing (at this point in my life) I ever want to do is shoot someone!!
    But if my family, friends, or a terriost situation comes up I'm all in!!! And then there are other scenarios; like LEO attacks, I'm all in!!
    If I get put in jail, it's not like I'm a young thing and I still have my principles and I'm at peace.

    Dang, I must have got some bad intel. I heard you were a young thing. I seen pictures, looked young to me and that was before I heard about the flash bang.
