I have had the honor to work on and with the finest men this country has for operators as an Army SF Doc. All of those who were a credit to themselves and their skilled service...

Army Rangers, Marine Force Recon, Navy Seals, Seabees, EOD, Air Force Pararescue, Combat Controllers, and Coasties..... I noticed the exchange of new Dinars with Saddam notes as a boots on the ground troop in the Sunni Triangle and the light bulb went off. I've lived long enough to retire and now wait for my retirement supplimental program to RV. There are no accidents in life.

I raise my glass to all those who gave some and raise respecfully higher to those who gave all. Hooah.

My husband has been Army Reserves for 28 years. He has done 2 tours in Iraq, scheduled to go to Afghanistan in February and has done numerous home front duties (Katrina being one of them).

But me.....I am a civilian :) with a son who is going to basic in January for the Army.

Good luck to your son going into basic.. I'm sure he will be just fine.

Well lets see I was in the Air Force and my husband was in the Army and we both worked as contractors in Iraq. Does that count???

Well let's sneak that by. :rolleyes:

Aerospace Grounds Equipment Mechanic

1985 - 1988 (3 years, 1 month due to early out)

1990 - Current: government contractor directly supporting the USAF

Early Happy Veteran's Day to all those who have served!!

I want to apologize. I should have also given a huge "THANK YOU" to all the families, friends and those we've never met personally who supported us along the way. Without your support some of us may have never served or even remained in service for as long as we did. So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! Veteran's Day is a day for you as well. :tiphat:
