We can't forget them, yet so many, especially the young people are not raised to know how important these men and women are to life as we know it. They ARE the only thing that stands between us and any number of countries or terrorist groups that would invade.

Thanks to all of the U.S. Vets. Thank you for being honorable and obeying orders to complete a job many of, I am sure, did not want to do.

As citizens, we have to raise the status of the Vets, especially in our homes.

Okay, I've spoken my piece.

Hey, it's way okay to bash the vets if that's how you feel. But at least tell everyone why you feel as you do, in detail.

It's also a shame that we don't close down the country for Veteraln's Day ( except for essential industries of course) Making a big deal out of it makes people think, but when you have to get ready for the bustle of life, such as work, you are unable to think.
Shopping on Vet's Day? Give me a break!
I, also, think it's commendable for WLSH (no, I am not plugging them) to have a patriotic theme today. Not many stations, I'd bet, are doing that so here's anothe reasy why we are lucky to live here.
