to all the past and present veterans. You may not be able to keep Tau safe (but who can), but you do a damn great job keeping Dan and his family feeling secure.
So again, to you and your FAMILIES (who are so often forgot) thank you from the bottom of my heart and keep up the good work.
No, I am not a pally, BUT I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night!!

Agreed! Our military, past and present, make me proud daily! What fantastic representatives of us they are! Godspeed to you all, and thank you for caring enough about the rest of us to sacrifice all you do on our behalf.
Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

Thank You!
To the tired cold and hungry men at Valley Forge. The LanternMan and Paul Revere
The freedom, the Nation, The way of life they foresaw.
The Ideal they all held dear.

To the grenadier in 1812, to the men at Little Big Horn
For all the Oathtakers, against all enemies foreign and domestic
For the servicemen not yet born.
Dodging jail or a prison term, dropped from school..live and learn.

From the shores at Tripoli
Thank you for standing ever vigilant over me.

Sweating and dying in Viet Nam, the Enola Gay and the Atom Bomb.
A dark cave and the Taliban. Many thanks to every woman and man.
protecting innocents and radicals alike, with aplomb.
The shield of spirit and of flesh, sacrificing for the rest.

Eagerly wading into the mud, fighting uphill very tired.
Win THE HILL with savage fury.
Resting now, only the dead to bury.

Uniform, spit and polish...head held high.
ready to travel far and painfully die.
A simple word or 2 seems the very least I can do for you.
Thank you.

Appologies for the less than perect english, and my rhythm is off a bit. but that is as it came
Thank you
