Old [email protected]#t, Thanks for your service. I, too, servered but luckly, I made it home before all [email protected]#$ broke loose over there. I had no more than got discharged, than I met a guy, who later became my best friend, and he had lost his right arm and left leg in an attack. I helped him learn to drive again, got his license, and he was a wild man with a '69 Mach 1, didn't care if he lived or died. He got help, got a job with the VA, and I moved back home and never hear from him anymore. There are lots of men and women who gave it all, I respect them and want to thank everyone who served our great country. Love the good ole USA. Charles :congrats: :congrats: :congrats:

Veterians

It's nice to read your comments.

The publics view of us Vet's has changed for the best. Every male and several women served in my family. MY Dad was a great man and served in the 101st Airborne. He saw a great deal of action all over Germany and the European theater, Africa, and too many to list. He earned a Field Commision and made it to the rank of Capt in WWII,,, and way to many Purple Hearts.

He was later recalled for Korea, and served in that war. He was a great solder and was luckey to return home after all of the campains. I served my 4 years as did my brothers, we all made it home. I somehow didn't get recalled during Desert Storm.

Our serving Troops are a great group of men and women. They keep this great country free and serve with Honor in these very difficult times.

Praise to out serving Military !

ThankYou

The public's view of us Vet's has changed for the best.

This is true however there is still much to be done.
This months DAV magazine has an article that says that on average 18 Vets a day commit suicide. Young,old and in between,18 a day!
I read a while back that approximately 150,000 Viet Nam Vets have committed suicide.

Oldfart, I read the same article. I think my stomach turned over. I have known about this for a long time now. I talk to as many Vets as I can. We need to take care of each other. Those who send us to war forget about us upon our return. This is still true today. I better stop before I really get cranked up.
PM me any time oldfart.
