Veterans Day *Edited*

To all who have served, thank you.

Would that we did not require such service.

*I send specific gratitude in Gerry‘s and Joe‘s direction; they are two blogger buddies who I know for certain wore a US military uniform.

 

*Edited to include this, from Improbable Joe’s Veterans Day post:

Don’t thank us.

Start doing better by us, and our active-duty and reservist brothers and sisters. Repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.   Reject any politician who wants to balance the budget or reduce the deficit on our backs. Stop sending us to fight pointless wars over oil and fear.

I love him…
