    Ditto to all that was said over yonder! When you watch the news and see all the fighting and bombing that goes on in other countries you really have to appreciate this country of ours.

    God bless every one that has ever served...........you are appreciated.

    We lost a 20 year old nephew last August, no war, but on duty nonetheless. He served his country proudly for the short time he was in the service.............we'll miss him forever.:(

    Your nephew holds a most honorable place. I will remember him with others. God bless him.

    Groundpounder, thanks for thinking of us.
    Since you are trying to keep this at the top and I feel this is an important enough thread to keep it at the top and on this forum, I will post this here too.

    I am proud to say I served my country, but I lost a lot of good friends in Nam, God Bless them.

    God bless everyone that has or is still serving our country defending freedom!

    We take care of two cemeteries both with veterans in them; every memorial week I place Texas and American flags on the graves and at the cemetery entrance as family members come to visit. I believe it gives them a sense of what these people fought for and gives a deeper appreciation for the ground you stand on.

    This is not to boost it is just what I do personally to show my appreciation.
