Thank you to all Veterans and their families for your sacrifices for keeping our great country free.

Thank you to my son and his wife for serving our country in Washington at McCord/Lewis. We are so proud of you!

As a way of remembering/celebrating note that all National Parks are free entry today and Monday. (except Alcatraz). Take a break and enjoy Muir Woods, as an example. Please don’t forget who made it all possible.

Remembering my Father who served with the US Army 91st Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron Mechanized, 1st Cavalry Division: African, Italian and Rhine River Campaigns circa 1943 and my Son serving with the US Army 1st Sustainment Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, Operation Enduring Freedom – Afghanistan. GO BIG RED ONE!

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

To all that are serving and have served thank-you. If you were sent to a base over seas or on a float double thank-you………….and if you are or were deployed to a war zone…………..Triple thank-you.
For those that gave the ultimate sacrifice with their lives……………you are now residing in a very special place in heaven and there is not even “thanks” out there for what you did

Thank you to all serving now, all who served in the past. Wish there could be no reason for servicing in the future.

My family has been lucky that in all the years of service, no family members have died in service. My grandfather and his brothers were in WW I, my father and uncles were in WW II, my brother and cousins were in Vietnam, some cousins were in the Korean version, my sons were in the first Gulf war, my niece and some cousins have been in this one and some cousins still are. My thanks to all of them with hopes that my granddaughters, or their children, will never need to serve in turn.

As the son of a WWII Army Aircorp bomber gunner and the Grandson of an WWI Infantry Artillery soldier, I say to all of you, you are welcome. While my Viet Nam era service (served in Europe) as an infantryman may have not been noteworthy, I am the last of my family to have served.

Three generations of soldiers, I am extremely proud of my Grandfather and Father.

I was proud to have Howard Vermeer a, WW-2 Veteran, and 29 year Marine lead the Pledge of Allegence at the District Meeting of Moose Lodges this Morning. 90+ years young and sharp as a whip, Thank You Howard, and all those who have kept our country free and safe! Veterans of Foreign Wars, and members of our Service are a living reminder of the freedom we live each day. Thank You, also, to so many who have served, sometimes for questionable reasons, who are not here today to see the appreciation on our faces. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, and did not stop for a moment to question your directive. Hero’s. American’s. Veterans. God Speed.

So many don’t understand us who have served and never will. Respects US.

Today’s Parade in Nashville was awesome. This has been a great Veterans Day.

An American badass:


God Bless all those who’ve served with honor.

My Dad’s best friend marched across Europe with Patton’s Third Army from Normandy and into Germany including playing a decisive role in the Battle of the Bulge. Patton’s third army was only constituted for less than a year, but what a year! When ordered to stop, he attacked, when ordered to fall back, he attacked more.

God bless you, Mr. Harvey. A model for all of us, that’s for sure.

Happy Veterans Day! My veteran got a nice free lunch at Chili’s, there are many restaurants offering free meals today and tomorrow


Rolling over in their graves November 11, 2012 at 4:28 PM

Our fathers, grandfathers and everybody else that had fought and died for our freedoms are rolling around in their graves right now.

We have reelected the most anti-American President in history that spits on our Constitution every chance he gets.

Obama is against everything that made our country great, I just hope he does not do too much damage to our country before he gets impeached or finishes his second term.

Pray for our great country.

Thank you to my husband, and all who has served to keep our freedom. Today is not about discounts at depatment stores or free food, etc. Today is a day to remember and thank those who lived, died and fought for our country. Some of you can complain and whine about our United States, but it’s still better to live here than any other country! THANK YOU!!!!!

In service of America
World War 2: 1941 to 1945. 11.5% Served.
Vietnam 1963 to 1975: 4.3% Served.
War on Terror: 0.45% Served.

Never in field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few….

My father was a Machinest Mate II in WWII. May God Rest His Soul. I miss him every day. He’s been gone since 1989. Love you, daddy.

God Bless all Veterans

It was a beautiful day. I hope some of you were able to enjoy the Huey flying through the air today. It was flown by Veterans and was also carrying several Veterans of several different eras. It was a helicopter from an age before mine, however it still felt right at home in a strange way. perhaps it was simply being surrounded by other Veterans while flying through the air with the doors open. to those of you who did see it and know what I speak of I hope it was a reminder of how beautiful the brotherhood can be. I hope you all had a wonderful Veterans Day. you deserve it.
