    I for one want to thank every U.S. service member on the Survival Monkey, be it member, site supporter or guest.... for your personal sacrifice, service to our great nation and your devotion to the mission!!

    I served a long and adventurous 12 years in our Army, my son just completed his 4 years of service as a Marine and my son-in-law is soon to leave after his service of 12 years+ in the Army.

    Our lives, freedom's and our national identity are there for you and I to partake, due to America's brave men and women that toe'd the line. stood on the cables.. on so on..... and made the commitment to serve all..... I salute every one of you.... well done!!! And to those that went down range and did not return...God Bless!!!!! And for those that paid the ultimate sacrifice... may your nation never forget!!!!!!!!!!

    Happy Veteran's Day!!








    Well done Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, Navy and Coasties!!!!!!!!!!

    A repeat post for me.

    Thanks to all those who served and are currently serving in our nation's armed forces. Freedom, like everything in this world, isn't free and; the ONE percent of American Citizens who fight for that freedom deserves our deepest respect and gratitude every day of the year for their sacrifices.

    Thank you for your service.....

    At 78 and a peacetime USAF vet, I thank all of those real vets who risked all and in all to many cases paid the ultimate price defending our country. What I miss is the old view that being in the military was part of your duties as an American and that I did not join up for 4 years for any great patriotic reason or to achieve any great goal, but that it was expected and part of being a citizen of this country. Yes I admit that at 18, the swearing to the constitution had a major impact on me. It was important and very symbolic to me that we did not pledge to the Army, Air force, Marines, Navy, etc, but that all enlistees of all services as a group pledged to support a common cause and the country and not our service or its officers, or the democratic president etc..

    I agree we can never thank the men and women that fought for our freedom. I thank you all. I just want you all to know that there are people in this country that really do appreciate you more than you know.

    Before Tuesday I might have said, "if you want to thank me, vote Trump", but today I guess I have to say "you're welcome and thank YOU for voting Trump"
