It is now the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month!!! Please AMERICA take a moment and think about those that have put their lives in harm's way so that FREEDOM may ring for every generation of CITIZENS of these United States of America. This day is not for those that gave their lives and paid the ultimate sacrifice; they have their own holiday, but for the living veteran, the one who still suffers today, when (s)he sees how most Americans forget or trivialize their (the veterans') sacrifice. So please, put your politics and grievances aside and "thank a VET!" Master Sergeant Carl R Goetz United States Army, United States Air Force; retired A.K.A. 'carugoman'
