Yes, thanks to the men and women who served for us with courage and dedication.
Incidentally, to clarify Scott's comment about 237th birthday, apparently his dad is a Marine(Always a Marine), and yesterday was the 237th anniversary of the founding of the Corps.
JohnK wins the prize! My dad is indeed a Marine and no matter where he is I do my best to get a happy birthday message to him on Nov 10. Many years ago he was at a sales meeting in New York (We lived in California at the time) and I sent a fax to his hotel with the largest font I could get on one page. His manager intercepted it and made a bit of a spectacle in front 200 other reps. "Just how old does your son think you are?" My dad pulled a $100 bill out of his wallet and said it was theirs if they explain the significance of Nov 10th. No one could.
To all the other Vets out there, Thank You, too!
