The musings of a politically incorrect dinosaur from a forgotten age where civility was the rule rather than the exception.
The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions." --American Statesman Daniel Webster (1782-1852)

Veterans Day 2017
My employer had a Veterans day celebration at my job and it was pretty neat, I will post pics in a day or so. I have to go to work tonight so I don't have time to set it up.
I and many Veterans appreciate this day, we don't go looking for praise but it is nice to have a day where our duty and sacrifice is celebrated. We Veterans get together with our fellow brothers and sisters and share stories and memories of stuff that usually we don't talk about except with each other. Our experiences are unique and with 1% of the American population that serves or have served our experience are different. Veterans with few exceptions know people most likely family members that have served and this is the trait that defines us. We are basically the warrior class of our society. I have served as have my brother, My dad, granddad served, uncles, and cousins. People who walk the rampart have had family do the same for it is a family tradition.
To my fellow Veterans....I Salute you
