    Default The Official Veteran's Day Thread

    Happy Veteran's Day to all my fellow veteran's.

    I went on a rant on Facebook just a bit ago, then to see there wasn't a thread for today, it made me pretty sad.

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT'S UP, MY PURE ROCK FREEEEEEAKS?!?!? Something important I have to get off my chest.

    I've been seeing that today is National Metal Music Day. NO!! IT'S!! NOT!!! TODAY IS VETERAN'S DAY!!! Today, especially, is the day we shake a veteran's hand. That veteran gave you the right to be free, and listen to Iowa's Pure Rock til your hearts content. NEVER, EVER FORGET THAT.

    I will NOT change an important day, such as this, for something as mind-numbingly stupid as Nation Metal Music Day.

    I salute all veterans (there's so many to mention), specifically my brother Scott, my dad Larry, my step-dad Larry, my best friend Kevin and great friend, Sisca. Plus current military members: My niece Morgan; my nephew Cliff and my other best friend Ray, in Afghanistan.

    DO NOT insult the sacrifices these family members of mine...and yours, have made for our republic the great place it is.

    WITH THAT SAID....LET'S TEAR THIS PLAYHOUSE DOWN!!

    Thank you for your service and for starting this thread. Thank all of you here who have served and those that gave us, and continue to allow the privileges we enjoy today.

    God Bless You All!

    Sometimes we need a little push RRMB. You took care of the issue by recognizing the lack of a thread and starting one. Don't be too sad.

    My dad and 5 brothers on his side of the family. Two out of three uncles on my mom's side. Numerous cousins and friends. I feel so emotional right now. Thanks again buddy.

    When I came home from the UK recently, I was in Atlanta at the airport and America's finest were coming home. Lots of them! They announced it on the intercom and everybody erupted with cheer! It was very emotional and I was so proud to be American.

    Thank you to all the veterans out there and especially to the Linker veterans.

    Thank you.

    I live in Guelph - which is where McCrae was from....today we went to a ceremony downtown, it was so very powerful. I think in my prior life I was one of the 1.5M Canadians that served the country.

    On a side note, the arena where the ceremony was was PACKED! Likely because the ceremony was on a Sunday - and we could attend. Normally, November the 11th is not a holiday (which it should be) - maybe if more people had it off, more would understand and appreciate the importance and sacrifice. Ya, a bunch would seduce the pooch - however if you can reach some.......

    Thank you for your service. I get to speak tomorrow to a bunch of veterans about their retirement plans. Do it every year, always a fun day, the stories are awesome to hear.

    Especially the "shore leave" stories.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    very happy with the job our schools is doing with Remembrance Day (our Veterans Day) up here. My 5 year has been talking about it for the better part of the week and he's been drawing and colouring poppies. He asked one of the cadets (selling poppies outside the grocery store) a bunch of questions. He even forced my wife and I to sit for a minute of silence today (even though it was long past 11 am - he hasn't got the time thing down yet).

    Thanks to all of you who served. BTW why is Patton still buried in Belgium? He should be brought back to Arlington. Maybe his family doesn't want him laying next to Ted Kennedy? no pun intended.
