Happy Veteran’s Day!

Thanks to all the people who go to crazy places overseas and kill bad people so we can be all safe and write silly blogs. It’s from your efforts that we are able to have these silly political arguments — not that we blame you.

God bless.

  2. Thanks for recognizing veterans for their service, Frank.

    One way to tell a Liberal from a Conservative:

    Conservative: Willing to fight and die to defend family, community and country.

    Liberal: Refuses to fight; blames those who are willing to fight for their own cowardice.

  3. I don’t know where our nation finds these people. They are the one’s who run to danger and not away from it on our behalf! We cannot thank them enough for their service! God Bless our Men and Women in uniform who protect this proud nation daily!

  4. I could live to be a million years old, yet I would never cease to be in awe of our service men and women. I truly thank God that our veterans stood in the gap between us and those intent on harming us. While other national institutions fail, the continued dedication, bravery and ingenuity of our service men and women give us hope for the future.

  5. IMAO we can be more mindful of their sacrifice and stop hanging them out to die alone and surrounded in third world crap holes propped up by first world welfare.

    They signed up to protect their own family and homes not babysit the neighbors. Lets bring them home to do the job they are sworn to, defend Americas borders from enemies foreign and domestic.

  6. I too wish to thank not only our veterans but their families for the sacrifices they made and continue to make so that we can live in freedom and liberty. As the great grand-daughter, grand daughter, daughter, wife, niece and mother of a military member I know first hand what it takes to to support our men and women in uniform. I salute them and their loved ones.

    While “Always Faithful” or Semper Fidelis is the Marine corps motto, it is the code all the services ascribe to.

    Thank you.
