I appreciate what folks like you and ghost (and all other who have and are serving) have done for me and my kids, we thank you...<quoted text>My blessing came from serving and like many vets of my age group, I didn't even realize that what I did had any meaning until long after I did it Hah.
I was a good, decent soldier and I won my little part of that misguided war.
...the town I work in has one of California's major arteries running through it, with one of the exits being a very busy stopping place. i have noticed for about the last 6 months that there are a lot of young adult men dressed in camouflage just kind of hanging out. It's the same group every time i stop there. Personally, i think they are taking advantage of people's (especially truckers) tendency to buy servicemen lunch..
