+1.

I have the privilege of spending this Veterans Day with a bunch of guys from my old platoon. It means the world to me to be able to do so.

Thank You to all who have served and those who are currently serving. Your sacrifices are appreciated. To those serving overseas; I know you miss your families, as sure as they miss you. Know that they are thinking of you this Veterans Day and so are we here at THR. God Bless you and God Bless the USA.

Sending some rounds downrange today to honor our Veterans!

Why? Because if it wasn't for them, I probably wouldn't be able to!

Gratitude and thanks, to all service men/women. I'm taking my wife to the range tomorrow so she may shoot and choose a CCW, and I will be sending lead downrange as well, thanks to our Military keeping us free.

Many thanks to all veterans. My grandfather served as an MP in Japan and then later in Korea, he's had some health problems but I am happy to say he has lived to see another veterans day.

My family wants to thank all those who have served or are still serving. You have given so much, asked for so little that what is received simply is not nearly enough. Words just can't express my family's appreciation.

A Thank-You to all Veterans who have served.

A safe return for those serving today.

A Special Thank-You to the Viet-Nam Vets who came home, not to an ungrateful nation, but to an ungrateful news media, student population, and subculture who went out of their way to spit on them upon their return home.

Let us never forget their sacrifices and treatment.

From one Vet to the rest, thanks for everything you've done, are doing and will continue to do in the future.

Although other issues kept me from the range, I started a project to restore a gun that has belonged to two Veterans, my step dad (Vietnam through Grenada) and his father (WWII and Korea), and spent part of the day with my own grandfather, who also served in Korea.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

"In Flanders Fields" is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. He was inspired to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Alexis Helmer, who died in the Second Battle of Ypres. According to legend, fellow soldiers retrieved the poem after McCrae, initially unsatisfied with his work, discarded it. "In Flanders Fields" was first published on December 8 of that year in the London-based magazine Punch.

To my fellow veterans: We fight the fight that needs to be done. It may not always be popular but we signed the line to do our duty. We will respect each other as veterans and to our friends who never got to see their families again.

To the supporters: you are the ones who deserve our thanks, even if we don't always know how to say it to you.
