Many, many thanks to the people who are serving or who have served our country. Stand up and be counted.

Defense Language Institute, Monterey, CA, then to US Army Field Station Augsberg, Germany, 1977-1981. Also, some tough duty at the Armed Forces Recreation Center, Garmisch. I was a Big P_ssy. Country club the whole time!

Wow. Yeah, I was there 77-79. Then on to Deutschland (sp), where I got to listen to Russians driving around in their tanks in East Germany. Good times!!

My brother was in Germany around the same time, early 80's, on border patrol. I'll have to ask him where exactly he wAs there for a few years, then states side for a stretch, then off to Kuwait, states side for a little while, then off to Bosnia, then back home for a few years, then back to Iraq. He's retired now.

I have the deepest appreciation and respect for those who have (or still are) served (serving) our country.

This is probably more suited to Memorial Day than Veterans Day. But, it will ring true for those who got spit on, and worse, in US Airports and those who wish to remember the noble, mostly kid, hero's that never got the chance to become veterans.

If you are able,
save for them a place
inside of you
and save one backward glance
when you are leaving
for the places they can
no longer go.
Be not ashamed to say
you loved them,
though you may
or may not have always.
Take what they have left
and what they have taught you
with their dying
and keep it with your own.
And in that time
when men decide and feel safe
to call the war insane,
take one moment to embrace
those gentle heroes
you left behind.

Maybe so, but I feel we can't thank our men and women in the service - and their families - enough.
