Where were all of you guys in 1969 when I returned from RVN and was ordered by the army to NOT wear my uniform home from the war as it would agitate many of my fellow citizens (that I was sent to RVN to protect?)

Evidently it did not fool them. I was called a baby killer, family killer and racist (?) while waiting for my plane at the San Francisco airport to my home in Florida. I stood there and took it.

Thanks for not doing that to the current crop of soldiers/sailors/airmen/marines.

Happy Veteran's Day to all you vets out there and thanks for your service. A special thanks go out to my son, a former Marine Cpl. and to my SIL, a retired Marine Top Sgt. I had my flag flying today but was disappointed there were not more to be seen.

Thanks vets!

We have our freedom because of you.

These days I think service is more about defending civilization than defending our freedom. It is a tough job and there is nobody better to do it. My thanks to all veterans. Every day I hope our leaders will be as good as our soldiers.

I am retired.
