Ditto on that. Whether you believe in any particular conflict/war, etc. or not, the fact remains that these people have sacrificed for a larger belief, and therefore they deserve our thanks and appreciation.
So thank you all of you who have served in the front, in the back, on the sides, over top and underneath. :thumb:
My Father, who was a veteran of WWII in the Army Air Corp, died on Veteran's day, 1974. Much to the protest of the funeral home and all the relatives (including me), my mother had him buried on Halloween. She felt he deserved it because he up and died on her.
My Dad was an officer in a Highland Regiment. My uncles and cousins served in various branches of the military in the UK. My cousin was on the forward command ship during the Falklands War and then served in the Gulf War.
