Not to mention "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to all USMC vets. Today is a very special day for you guys as it is rare for Marine Corp B'day to fall on Veteran's Day.
The Marine Corps birthday is November 10th(yesterday),not to steal your thunder or anything but it is the thought that counts and....

Thanks to all the Veterans for your dedicated service to our great country!

I just want to give a BIG THANK YOU to all of our veterans and those currently serving your country and mine today. Thanks for allowing me the freedom to drive something other then a VW. Thanks for protecting everything I like to be able to do without asking for anything in return!

These people should be thanked every day, but especially today, lets remember and thank the one who died so that we can live the way we want to, and also the ones who are still with us.

A Veterans' Day Poem
By Holly Rulli

Veterans' Day will come and go
Quicker than the blink of an eye
But memories of heroes present and past
Will never, ever die.

The youth of today, do you understand?
The price brave men did pay
To preserve the freedom we enjoy
Each and every day.

They were called to duty, and so they went
Not knowing what was to be
Many came home, some never did
They sacrificed so we could be free.

How lonely some must have felt
How scared some had to be
They paid the bill with their own blood
What a great cost to be free.

The heroes of our country
Are the ones who paved the way
For freedom and the many rights
That we enjoy today.

Next time, young folks, you pass someone
Who may be old and gray
Remember — thanks to him or her
You have your freedom today.

They may dress funny, not see as well
Walk a little slow
But they were young when duty called
And off to war did go

Brave men today are still at war
How scared some must be
How lonely some must feel inside
Paying the price to be free

You may dress funny, not hear as well
You drive your cars too fast
But remembers all those great brave men
Of present and of past.

So when you’re called to duty
Not knowing what is to come
Remember all those men before you
Who fought for our freedom.

Thanks peeps, the gratitude expressed on one day makes the other 364 worthwhile :)

Unfortunately you'd be surprised at the overwhelming LACK of support we get in five of the eight neighboring towns. I've had my rig egg'd and boxed in more times than I care to remember.
