Don't thank me, thank my recruiter. And the Drill Sergeants too, without whom I would be a blob of jelly unfit for service.

Seems like that pendulum is about to shift.
Is this your Calguns?

I'd do it again right now if it wasn't for the wife. I didn't give up what alot of people have, and I'm still here to post, so I definitely didn't give what many have. I thank them the most for the ultimate sacrifice. Hooah!

It has always been an honor to serve the country that I love so dearly and plan on continuing to do so until the Navy is done with me.

Humility is not something that comes easily to me, but I am humbled by your gratitude and devotion to your son.

Thank you for teaching your son what it means to be an American, what it means to make sacrifices, what it means to be part of somthing so much larger than any one individual. He is truly blessed to have a father such as yourself.

It was truly an honor to serve 20 years. All the thank-yous and support I received made it the best 20 years. I'd do it again without a second thought.

I came back from VietNam in 1970 - people didn't thank me then.

Thank you for thanking me now.

thank you for your service...I have spoke to many vietnam veterans at the VA. All of them are great guys, and not a single one of them thought we were losing in Nam.

You guys did an out standing job and watched out for eachother. Regardless of the decade in which you served, we all share a bond through the pride, disipline, honor and comitment of our armforces.

HOORRAAAHHH!!! to you all and Semper Fidelis.

Thank you Geeknow, but the real thanks should go to my dad. He instilled in me a love of country and a sense of duty while I was still a teenager.

He also called the Army recruiter on me.

In the fall of '86 I was talking with an Air Force guy who wasn't doing much to try and enlist me. Said I should talk to the Army instead, and he made the first call to the recruiter for me. I must have been the easiest recruit ever... When I walked in he asked me why I wanted to join, and I quoted JFK's "what you can do for your country" speech to him. Took the ASVAB pre-test, blew it away, and started the paperwork right then and there.

I'd do it all again, and I hope my own son will choose to enlist when he's of age. That'd make him the 4th straight generation that did. Now, I wonder why my dad called that Army recruiter?

The rest of you vets out there who are combat vets deserve a very special Thank You. During Desert Storm I was at Tripler AMC so I never deployed to a combat theater. You guys are the ones who really gave up the most to serve your country.

John

Let us make no mistake, warriors are servants in a very special sense of the word, for the service they perform is unlike any other.
They are called upon to bear unswerving allegiance to a nation in carrying out its political agenda.
Expected to risk life and limb with little explanation; to protect their fellow citizens with no promise of acceptance or gratitude; and to surrender part of their own rights and freedoms – all this so that the better part of the people they protect can better enjoy their own.
A warrior risks his life – often gives it —for little pay, primitive living conditions, boredom, days of sheer torment and terror, and separation from home and family.

~Cpt. Ron Drez

Here’s to those warriors, past, present, and future.

and thanks for the post geeknow!
