  • OT To all veterans...

    I want to say thank you for your service and a happy Veterans Day. I served from 1986 to 2000 and spent 1990/91 in Saudi Arabia for Desert Storm. The greatest privilege of my life was having the ability to serve.

    Thank you, Chuck, and all of our military people, veterans and those still active, for your service to our country.

      Yes, THANK YOU to all veterans. I never served but my dad got to go on one of the last WWII "Honor Flights" (almost 5 yrs ago now). I know they took Korean and Vietnam vets then, and possibly still are. There's really no way to adequately thank someone even for just dedicating several yrs of our (short) lives (- and for some, a lifetime), much less putting themselves in harm's way. Again, many thanks.

                Yes, many thanks. Including my big bro, former navy, now nypd, who was called down to ground zero on that fateful day. He survived and is still saving lives. I don't know how he does it.

                  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.

                    1972 - 1975 - Medical Corps, South Vietnamese Army. Thank you to all who served and died in Vietnam without getting the recognition you deserved because of the war's unpopularity. Without you, my community, my family and I wouldn't have the free existence we currently enjoy.

                      Thank you indeed.

                      In Australia, we have 'Remembrance Day' which commemorates the signing of the WW1 Armistice on November 11, 1918. My grandfather served as a despatch rider with the Australian Infantry Force on the Western Front, and luckily for me, he survived.

                      The Australian, New Zealand and American ground, air and naval forces which fought in New Guinea and the Coral Sea in 1941/42 saved Australia from invasion by the Japanese; and without their service and sacrifice, I wouldn't be here and Australia would be a different country.

                      In my spare time I work as a guide at the Royal Australian Air Force Museum, Point Cook, and try to convey to visitors of all ages the debt we owe to these men and women.

                      Sadly, almost all the veterans of these campaigns have passed on, but I was privileged to meet a few of them: their modesty about what they did was humbling.

                          Somewhere I read: 11:11am (where, France?, Germany?) on Nov. 11th. Not sure what the significance was though?

                            Hi Chris

                            The Armistice to end WW1 was signed at 11.00am on 11 November, 1918 in France.


                            In Melbourne's Shrine of Remembrance, at that time and date the sun shines through a window and falls on the tomb of The Unknown Soldier. The tomb is inscribed "Greater Love Hath No Man Than to Lay Down His Life for his Friends".
