    I just got out of the Army exactly 1 year and 26 days ago. It pretty much sucked, but I'm proud to have served my time and done my service to the Red, White and Blue. God Bless America and Remember The Towers.

    Good post. I went to the Memorial Day parade locally, it was cool to see all the Patriotism in the crowd. When Vets would walk by, the crowd would cheer. Kinda makes you think about past wars plus current wars from the Septermber 11th crisis.

    Thanks for the grats, but only having served 4 years all of which fell between anything substantial happing in the world, I'd have to turn that honor over to those who are serving now and those who served in the conflicts past. Those guys are the ones that really deserve the Thanks you!.
    You guys ROCK!!!

    Not a flame to anyone, but just some food for thought. While your intentions are good, Memorial day is a day of rememberence for those that have given the ultimate sacrifice ie. giving thier life WHILE in service of this country. Veterans day is day to honor all those who have served our country. I did a google search for those who want to know more.

    If you will notice the title " In memory of my fellow Vets" I was honoring those who gave thier lives!!!!

    I did throw in a salute for those still "living" and sacrificing thier lives. Ask any vet out there what it is like to serve thier country prior to Sept. 11 and how they were thought upon and treated, not to mention the pay!!! We have given the ultimate sacriface in my mind.

    My reply wasn't directed at you it was more or less a post to state what the actual meaning of Memorial Day is. Many people look at this day as just a long holiday weekend and do not even give the meaning of it a thought. Ever been to a BBQ and observe a moment of silence?

    "We have given the ultimate sacriface in my mind."
    Sacrifice maybe, but not the ultimate.

    As for the rest of it.
