I know it's a day early but because I'll be out of town for the next couple of days I'd like to personally thank the vets, both U.S. and Canadians here on the forum ... Jack (Ajax), Tom (Exlabdriver), Dean (Grunt), Rick (Wid) and Michael (micheal_d) for your dedicated service to both of our countries. Please forgive me if I missed anyone but I certainly don't want to leave anybody out and my personal thanks are for all vets, bar none.


I'm quite sure most of you may know the significance of the number 11 with Veterans/Remembrance Day but for those of you who may not, this day was brought about to mark the armistice of WWI on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 and to honor the vets who served.

The number 11 will be an especially significant number for my wife and myself this year because at 11:00 a.m. on Friday (the 11th) our son will graduate basic training for the U.S. Coast Guard at Cape May, N.J. ... Godspeed with your new career young man!

Thank You fellow vets for your service!

Well said, Rick.

I'd also like to extend my thanks to all the forum members who are vets. And I'd like to say thanks to my dad who is also a vet, having served in the Vietnam War.

I cannot express the depth of my gratitude to all those who have served to protect our freedoms.

Rick, congratulations and thank you to your son. You must be very proud of him.

Rick, congratulations to your son. Thanks to our veterans here and everywhere who've helped defend our freedoms.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

I'm a vet. Not a long timer, but I put 4 years into the US Army during a rather peaceful time just after the Vietnam war.

I also thank all of the other vets. They are what helps to make this a great nation.

I don't see how it could be said better than Ricks post.

Thank you to all who have served or continue to serve. And Rick, add one more "congratulations" to your son!

Agreed. I'll be attending memorial services tomorrow, rain or shine and it definitely looks like wind & rain, two colliding storm systems worth. However getting a bit wet is a laughable sacrifice compared to what these brave men and women did and continue to do for us.
With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.
