Thank You Veterans

I want to personally thank each and every person who is presently serving their country or has served their country in the military. I think that this should also extend to police officers and fireman-they wear a uniform, they defend and protect us and many have lost their lives while bravely performing their duties.

Thank You and God Bless

ps. you’re welcome

I log on looking for something to make me smile/laugh, and what do I read in the “Strong Words” box???

“People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”

I’ve sometimes dissed “rough” people (some are real assholes, and I’ve known my fair share) but these are just the people who’d stand up and run before the enemy’s fire to save my crying ass.

Same goes for those old grumpy bastards we sometimes make fun of because they ride in electric wheelchairs or drool all over… These old men used to stand as strong and proud as any of us… And many MORE than any of us…

Well… I know I came in here to find something to laugh at, but now, I feel more like saying “Thanks grand’pa.”

Thanks to all veterans and those still serving. The risk you take on our behalf is awesome. God bless you all!
