He paid the ulitmate price a man can pay -for me, so l could sit here waiting to start my shift and post to By-tor unafraid of dying as he did. Thanks be to G-d he died painlessly, though l know there were others who suffered and those injured in this same fight.

Thanks t *hugs*

Thanks HB, and thank you for your service Bro.

My only regret, after supporting the USMC as long as I have, is that I
wasn't a ground-pounder myself.

You - and the rest of those guys - past and present - get MAD RESPECT
from this side.

I'm off tomorrow, but...

I just want to wish to all who serve our country, to those that have
served, and to those in harm's way:

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY, and...

HAPPY VETERANS DAY!

Agreed. Hey check this out.

Kids here at a local grade school raised just over 2k to send 4 Vets to DC to see the WWII Memorial........How cool is that. The city is going to try to get all the schools to follow suit for next year. Send a gob of them to DC.

Way to go kids!!!!
