Is that why I didn't get any mail yesterday?

;)

In all seriousness I do appreciate those who serve our country. Thank you! I was in that window of age where the was no mandatory requirements to go into harms way for the protection of our country - and as such didn't serve in any military. But thank you to any that entered on your own. We owe you more than we give.

Ditto from me. Granddad was a West Pointer and spent 30 years in the Army before he bought the falcon as his retirement economy car. For a while, back when I drove my Grandparents around in high school because they couldn't drive any more he was the oldest living West Point graduate. My Dad and Uncle also had 20 year careers. I never did go in, but I really do appreciate all that others before me have done and also appreciate everyone that serves today. [BOW]
