    I just needed to let this out. Today my husband went to visit my sons class(in uniform). The teacher requested he come in and speak to them re: Veteran's Day. My husband was active Army for 13 yrs and has been in the Natn'l Guard for 1 year so far. The class was great and it went well. On the way out there were a lot of parents there to pick up their kids. Dh overheard one mother say to another "Oh my God, I can't believe they let THEM in here". I really wish I was there. Dh just ignored her, but I know it bothers him. What is wrong with some people?!?!

    Yeah, I can't believe they let heroes into schools either.

    [​IMG] Is your husband SURE they were talking about him? Sounds too Crazy for someone to say that.

    Perhaps they were talking about something totally different.

    :thun Don't even get me started - I almost got into it in the nail salon over someone joking about killing the President one time. I should have called Secret Service or the FBI. When are people gonna get it - FREEDOM JUST AINT FREE!

    No freedom isn't free. My hubby was in the the army for 20 1/2 years. He has been retired for 2 years now. It is so hard to have them have to go to war. It is hard on them and the family left behind. Mine went to Iraq and I had to tell my 7 year that daddy was going to be ok and come home when deep in my heart I knew he might not. I am thankful he did. A couple of the soldiers with him wasn't as lucky as he was. Thanks to all that has served.
