you know I do.

My dad who is a vet btw....a couple years ago I visited him in DC where he lives.We went to Arlington.I recomend everybody go to DC to see it,it inspires.

Yes we dislike alot of what goes on in DC,but seeing the buildings,the monuments and specially Arlington is patriotic inspiring.

Seeing the stones of heros,past patriots and presidents really makes it personal.

Excellent post, MJ.
My Father served with 'The Old Guard' and walked the tomb himself, not to mention a couple of tours in Vietnam and Korea. He is and always will be, my personal Hero.

Both my parents and all their brothers and sisters served in WWII. I met a lot of people this weekend who had Friday off but had no idea why! This year I lost several of the survivors from my unit from cancer's of the soft tissue and it's way to many for our age groupe. I worry the price paid for freedom held higer. I also worry that the price these youg people are payng for our freedoms will be belittled by short term greedy governing bodies and Netindo or X-Bot civilians. I also thought the high road would have a few more American Veterans milling about but it looks more like the mid road. I just hope it's that they were all out to the range with their friends.:rolleyes:

Today I will be doing that and remembering old friends and range days.

Bless all you new and old Veterans where ever you are. We all owe you a great deal.

I get to remember every day. My son just got back from Ramadi. In the early 60's, my dad was in Vietnam, Ethiopia, and Haiti. My wife's father was in WW2, along with both of my grandfathers.

Myself? Served in the early 90's.

None of us really talk about any of it; don't know why.

Sad there were no more replies. Says something!

...maybe it says that some of us are speechless...not disrespectful.
