Personally, I never was in the Military (my days would have been Vietnam) but I still think to this day, that I should have been in the Military, Vietnam or not.

But, I hold a strong bond to anyone who has served for their country. Being a USA citizen, of course I value and respect any man or woman who has put on a uniform to serve and protect the United States.

Still my praise goes beyond that. To all countries and to all man and woman who respect the value of freedom and are willing to put themselves on the line to protect that.

Bravery and Honor doesnt get much higher than that.

My thanks to all that have served, past , present and future.
And special thanks to those that have given up their lives for the sake of our freedom.

I dont mean this to be a political statement , but just a thanks to people that should be thanked.

  • Ron,

    Thank you. I spent 14 years in the Air Force before my back got the best of me. Even if I hadn't been in the military, I would feel the exact same way that you do. Each day was a pleasure to represent such an awesome country and to stand for something that millions of people across the world can only dream of having, Democracy and Freedom. I spent allot of my military career in many different countries that are not so lucky and it makes you appreciate just exactly what you have each day.

    I want to thank you and everyone else that stand behind each and every one person that is/has/will serve time in the armed forces.

  • Ron, Jason,

    Thanks guys! My husband and I are both retired US Air Force and have continued to work for the US Military as civilians. We just can't see doing anything else. We love our country and those who have come before us and will come after us in support of such a great nation, our hats are off to them!

    Welcome to Spine-Health

  • PapaRon, thank you for starting this thread. Most of us don't think of and thank our troops as often as we should.

    I also want to thank each and every member of the armed forces, past, present and future, for their service to our wonderful country. Without them, I'd hate to see where we'd be today.

    We fly our flag every day in salute to you.
