Veterans Day Tuesday
This is a special day to many. A lot of Vets gave all for this country and they should be remembered. A lot of families have had there lives torn apart with war on both sides. War is horrible but we have not figured a way yet to stop it? Freedom has been fought for in many ways. The Vets who went to fight have been looked at different ways when they got home. Some are mixed up in what they did fighting the wars. They came back having done stuff only a Vet really understands and it works on them for the rest of there life. They see people complaining yet there freedoms were paid for by many. So when this day gets here just think about how great this country is to live in due to the Veterans who did there part making sure it stays that way. Don't forget what this day is all about when you enjoy your time off. Thank a Vet for what they did for you. Tip a beer, shake a hand or just say thanks it means so much to not be forgotten.

Well said Mark and like Matt I thank you for your service.
I was watching the Arizona State game yesterday and they were honoring Pat Tillman, he would have been 38 Thursday.
I hope nobody chimes in with nothing negative on this special day. Our family has been relativly lucky in not losing anybody over their many years of service, an Uncle in the Koreon conflict that I never got to meet. Both my nephews came home from the middle east.
Here's a good Toby Keith song I like to play for this day :)
