To All Veterans...

THANK YOU!
I honor and respect all who have served and are serving.  A veteran taught me that.  It's still with me as the man who taught me is always in my heart.  His honor, his respect, his honesty, his patriotism was an attribute I wish more citizens had.  I am proud to say he was my father.
Thanks, Dad!
Thanks to all who have served and are serving.
May God bless you every one.

Nice tribute; you have a good heritage. I have an uncle who was in the navy; my mom was in the army, and my grandpa was in the Marines. Respect to our veterans.
