Veterans Day.

I am a little loathe to say 'Happy Veterans Day' - it seems a lot like saying "Happy Yom Kippur".

However to all my brothers and sisters out there. I wish to extend my thank you to you and for your service.

It is because of you and your ilk that I am able to live comfortably, teach philosophy (and not be doomed by some dictator), and raise my kids in a fashion I choose.

Your sacrifices will not be forgotten.

With that said I wish to make a clear distinction: Veterans - and War Veterans.

I served during war time - but I did not serve IN a war.

I have had the honor of teaching and serving other vets in my capacity as a professor. Hero's one and all. They have seen more than most of us will ever see and gladly saw it so that we would not have to see it.

May I make one request. Don't just thank a vet today - do what you can to help the vets either through direct assistance, working with legislation, or making sure they have what they need when they come home.

The vets I know want nothing more than peace for their nation. America aught not squander their abilities on skirmishes that are ill fated or foolish. The price they pay for our lack of introspection is great - and at times - more than they can bear.

Semper Fidelis Brothers and Sisters.

Keep your asses low and your bedrolls dry.

Semper Fidelis, to all active duty military and veterans, regardless of combat experience. Even though it seems our esteemed has effectively stopped college funds for non-combat veterans, we all signed the same papers, and I pray that we all receive the benefits we were promised.

I realize that our calling was to serve, and I won't soil this thread with a political rant. Ladies and gentlemen, you are appreciated, and were it up to me, I would still be serving alongside you or for you. Thank you all.
The beauty of the Automag is that when you get it set up just how you want it, you discover that you have enough leftover parts to build 2 loaners.

TF, War or not bro, you wrote Uncle Sam a blank check. You are a Veteran, nothing can cheapen that. You are part of that fraternity.

While I'm at it, Happy belated Marine Corps birthday.

There are many more on this board that deserve the 'like' to this post.

They are just humble.... like good soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines should be...
