We add our profound thanks to ALL who have served the USofA through the years. D is a Navy vet, is very proud of that service, and wouldn't trade those years of experience for anything.
I agree about the simple act of thanking military personnel. I'm often surprised by the reaction when we say "Thank you for your service" to folks in uniform ... don't think they hear it often enough.
Our freedoms are precious and hard-fought, and yep, they are NOT free but must be continually defended.
Regards, L 'n D
