Thanks to your sons, Felix. I know you are proud of them. May God bless them, and all of the servicemen and women in the military. May God bless the veterans and their families.

Indeed, great thanks to all who have served and sacrificed to protect this world.

My brother, a Korean War veteran, will be one of five or six veterans speaking at the elementary school telling the students some of what it was like but also why he served. Thanks to that school for keeping the focus on our veterans.

Thanks to my dad for his service in the army. Thanks to my mom, who despite being in a new country, and pregnant with her third child, didnt divorce my father when he volunteered to go to Vietnam. Thanks to my son Staff Sargent Sheedy, currently stationed in Barksdale.
God Bless all the troops, here, the troops in the UK and Europe and Australia too. God Bless the troops everywhere!

As a four year active duty Navy veteran, I give all the guys and girls in the Armed Forces today a big thanks.

Heart and soul - thank you for your service. And a great big Amen to everything said above....

And my greatest respect on this Veterans Day to my son, Staff Sgt John Neely, USMC, who missed out being the fastest promoted, youngest staff sgt in Marine history by a few weeks when President Clinton put a freeze on promotions to save money.

(And I don't know the official way to state that someone is not actively in the Corps any more. You can't say "former" Marine, because once a Marine, always a Marine. Ooo-Rah!)

I work in an ER, and the other day I saw a 30-something year old guy who had slipped and fallen, hurting his shoulder. He told me he's home on leave, recovering from surgery to the shoulder. He was shot up in Iraq, had multiple surgeries in Germany, trying to get healthy so he can return to his unit. Worried that he buggered up his shoulder again. Worried that he would be discharged from the Army if he didn't recover from his wounds enough. Worried what he would do if he couldn't continue his chosen career in the Army. Worried about his wife and young child. "At least I can rely on the VA for health care, if I can't stay in the Army." His xrays looked okay, but he was still in pain, and still worried. I could hardly speak when I said "Thank you for your service."
