    It's time to recognize the vets again. (edited November 7, 2011)

    Veterans Day is Friday. I think there are few other veteran threads but this was the easiest one for me to find.



    Memorial Day, which was originally called Decoration Day has come and gone. It is a day on which we honor our service members who died in service to our country. (This is not intended to disregard or disrespect our non US forum members.)

    Flag Day is Saturday so I thought maybe all the vets in the forums could stand up and say hi ya'll. I didn't feel like waiting until November 11 for Veterans Day.

    So if it's OK.

    Also brats, spouses, and other family members.


    Hi ya'll
    US Army, 1972 to 1999 with some Army and Airforce Reserve and Air National Guard thrown in.
