My son was in a Veteran's Day Parade today. They take on a whole new meaning for us now that Shawn is in Iraq.
Thank you to all the veterans who have served this country with pride, strength, honor, and courage!

Go Army! HOOAH!

I'm sure it will be crowded, but Golden Corral has free dinner this evening for veterans. You may have to show your vet registration card or military ID. Not sure.

Thats nice...I believe they do that every year. My dad was a WW11 Veteran and he was so proud of all he had done. He passed away last year.

Tomorrow the School is celebrating Veterans Day - My Daughter ( who is in 4th grade) is among all of the forth graders who will be singing patriotic songs ...

My Husband ( ex Military Police, Army) is going. It has taken me several years to encourage him to attend these assemblies - the contributing factor now, is that our Daughter talks about her Daddy as a 'hero.' (Bless)

To all and everyone who has served their Country - I honor you...

When I attend these patriotic gatherings, I don't subscribe to the pledging and singing of how great ya'll are BUT I truly believe that there are few Countries who are as patriotic and steadfast in their acknowledgements of the Men / Women who serve in their Armed Forces.

Veteran's ... Yesterday, Today and tomorrow ..... Thank You !

Appearantly, you haven't read my signature line....However it wasn't sarcasm. I really do appreciate the work that my vet does.

And just in case anything thinks that I don't respect and honor veterans; I've lost 3 uncles, a few friends, and some extended family to the evils of war.

Veterans are absolutely necessary and VERY much appreciated.

Yes Iris I did read your signature line. Like I posted earlier...Us praising the Veterans here & you praising your "vet" shouldn't in my eyes been done on this particular thread. I think you knew that when you mentioned the hate mail you would receive...or why would you have added that? Anyway...
God Bless Our Veterans...Past, Present, and Future!
God Bless Our Troops!

I took the time to visit my uncles who served in Vietnam and phoned my cousins who have served in Iraq. My husband, 2 brothers, dad, and grandfather are vets too.

As a Former vet, I went to see the movie Flag of our fathers on saturday.


Good movie to reflect the things that goes on during a struggle for freedom. The end made me cry, very touching father and son meeting.

I want to say thanks for all the Men and women that are currently serving in the armed services and their families.

Thank you

Tracy,

I saw that too. It was different than I thought it would be, but an interesting story - I didn't know that history before I watched the movie. I grew up listening to that Johnny Cash song talking about Ira Hayes.

Thank you Serene. As far as your point of view goes on what BurningIris had to say...well..I can see both sides of the coin here. As long as the Veterans here that have posted are finding humor in it...no harm done.
HAPPY VETERANS DAY!!!!!!!!!
God Bless Our Veterans!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to the Veteran's Assembly today (at the School)...... I cried throughout most (if not all) of the program. I can say that it was truly wonderful......

From the start, when the two little boys with their Mother, carrying the flag, big picture of their Dad / Husband currently serving in Iraq, flashing behind them on the screen, to TAPS, where all of the Children bowed their heads ( sob, sob) to the singing of each Branch of Service songs ( whereupon, the Vet's stood proudly) ..

If you get the opportunity next year, I wholeheartedly encourage you to attend... the pride; glory and honor were positively tangible...

My daughter is a 6th grade cheerleader & was in the group that went to Ky over the week-end. She didn't want to go to school today but I told her she had to. She loves school but was very upset about attending today. I had forgot about the assembly. After loosing her grandfather last year the assembly was pretty ruff on her. Last time she heard the Taps was at his funeral last year. She said the assemly was beautiful but she cried & thought of her papa the same time. If she would have only reminded me...I probably would have had her skip today.

The Star Spangled Banner always brings tears to my eyes when I hear it sung in a public setting. I thought I was going to start openly sobbing when I was at Seaworld and they had all the soldiers stand up and they played it with pictures flashing across the big screen. I had to practically bite my lip in half.

Angela

Oh My .... The Assembly WAS beautiful ... but I can only imagine just how much of a reminder of Papa and his passing this would be.

Sometimes, as Parents we beat ourselves up over decisions made.
If there is anything that I could say by way of comfort, as much as this was a real moment where memories would be a true focus and painful... it might be a catalyst of sorts.... even though the Assembly was emotional, I'm quite sure that in the midst of her anguish, your Daughter was able to acknowledge her pride also... there are probably going to be several milestones for her to overcome, but she just faced a major one, unexpected, but major none the less.... In my thoughts

I guess as men we do not show much crying.. But i can say without a doubt when I here the star spangled banner being played, It starts with a tingle up and down my back and then tears come to my eyes. This started after I spent 5 years in the military and served with some of the greatest men and women ever. Tears of joy becasue I was able to join them in serving my country. Tears of sadness for the ones we can only remember and tears of happiness for the ones we can still hold and embrace.


thank a Vet for your ability to write what ever you want here. They helped preserve your rights.

Thank you so much. I'm not going to beat this topic to death but I just have 1 more thing to say.
Her teacher from last year knew about everything. She was near my daughter at the assembly. Last night when we talked before going to bed (something we ALWAYS do) my daughter told me when this teacher saw her getting upset...she looked at her & told her "to suck it up."
My daughter took this as being very cold hearted. I feel so bad she had to have both things coming at her at 1 time. As a parent wer'e supposed to be able to give them another perspective as to what something like this might have meant...instead. I had no words for her.

I spent time as a security policeman in the us Air force. I was also a sgt for the the EST ( Emergency Service Teams) swat teams. And on the Color Guard team for the base and we serviced all of Indiana for military color guards

After 11 years in the Navy and serving on honor guards for many burials at sea and other funerals I cannot hear Taps or Amazing Grace played without getting a little misty- I make no apologies for it and would probably take grat umbrage if someone told me to "suck it up". Umbrage being a nice word for kickin a little booty.

I bet we have a lot of military people in Monroe.

My husband is a SSG in the Army. He works for JAG. I spent four years in working as a personnel clerk, then ETS'd a year after my son was born because we knew too many married military couples that were having to send their children to relatives because they both got deployed (Family Care plan always made me very uncomfortable).

Sapere Aude,
Angela
