    Special shout-out to vets and soldiers.

    You guys are doing, and have done a great job. I appreciate that, just wanted you to know for sure.

    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    The State of Vermont has a adopted a service medal for Veterans of Foreign Wars. I've been invited to receive mine at the State House in Montpelier on November 10th presented by the Governor.

    It is nice to live in a little State.

    TRUE !! At the battle of Gettysburg, Gen. John Sedgewick gave the order in the mist of it all, "Put the Vermonters ahead"

    "Put the Vermonters ahead." is still the motto of the Vermont National Guard.

    A Quote from the Wounded Warrior Project e-mail I receive:

    http://www.oohlalachristmas.org/index.php?id=184

    “There are those who speak about you who say, “he lost an arm, he lost a leg, she lost her sight”…I object. You gave your arm. You gave your leg. You gave your sight. As gifts to your nation. That we might live in freedom. Thank you. And to your families, families of the fallen and families of the wounded. You sacrificed in ways that those of us who have not walked in your shoes can only imagine.”

    Almost 24 hours and only 10 posts???



    I would have thought this thread would have received more attention and interaction by now.




    I would like to thank all fellow service members who serve....past, present, and future.

    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    The sentiment is there. It is often silent, not always voiced out or discussed. But the sentiment is there and that is the whole reason I posted this thread originally. It should be said more often. Rest assured, the sentiment is there, just often we don't really know what to say or how to say it.

    Just a simple Thank You is plenty enough.


    Usually, a simple thank you will make the veteran feel uneasy.
    Because we did what we did for the men and women standing with us. We didn't do it for ourselves, nor did we do it for the American people. We did it to protect our Brothers and Sisters in arms.

    So to have a civilian say thank you is more of an awkward but respected experience.

    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    And don't forget November 10th is Happy 235th Birthday to the USMC.

    I know where I am going to eat. Check out what Applebee's is doing November 11th for Veterans and Active Duty Military.
