Veterans Day
« on: November 10, 2009, 09:24:14 PM »
Just want to thank our veterans for there service.


To me a Veteran is someone who signs a blank check to our country, and is willing to honor that check by paying the highest price which is to sacrifice his life for his country.

Yes, happy Veterans Day to all my fellow veterans. My wife always picks on me because she always has the day off and I don't. :(
