In Honor of Veterans Day


As all of you (hopefully) know, today is Veterans Day. As the granddaughter of two veterans and the cousin of two men in uniform currently serving in Iraq I think it is important to recognize this of all holidays for the purpose it was intended…even if my employer didn’t (drat!).

That said, I wish to offer my personal thanks to all those who have, or are currently serving in the military. Thank you for protecting my freedom to be as liberal as I want to be. Thank you for protecting my freedom to criticize all politicians and laws I disagree with. Thank you for protecting my right to publish offensive and illicit material on the internet. Thank you for the right to stick provocative bumper stickers on the back of my car. Thank you for protecting my right to some control over my government by voting. Thank you for protecting my safety from those who would harm me. Thank you for protecting the safety and freedom of those who are less fortunate than those of us in the U.S.A. Thank you for defending the Constitution and especially the Bill of Rights. Thank you for taking on a job that many of us would have to be forced to do, kicking and screaming.

God Bless and Protect the Men in Uniform.
Update: Please, Please, Forgive me! God Bless and Protect the Women in uniform as well.

P.S. There are several charities that serve veterans and their spouses. I personally give $200 each year to the Paralyzed Veterans of America (and I have a million mailing labels to show for it). If you are going to give…today might be the day.

Things to be Happy About:

Men in Uniform
Free Speech
Personal Safety
The Bill of Rights
Chocolate Cake

Pike2489: When people really think about it and stop whining about this or that political issue...they too are thankful.

That is true but what I meant was I wish there were more inteligent hot women with a nice rack like you.
Now that I'm back in college I'm beginning to become more liberal these days and thinking outside my old box.
What did you major in anyway?

Frogger,if I had someone like you to fight for when I was in the Corps it would have made the job more fun! As for politics too many speak on things happening over there when they have NO clue.I almost lost my life while serving and would do it again in a heartbeat but what I won't do is humour those people unlike yourself that speak on shit they know nothing of...So from the bottom of my heart from someone that has lost 100's of friends now and continues to lose more,THANK YOU! People like yourself make me proud to have served! F,H,L,-Mick

Leave the politics out of the war. Our men deserve at least that. Yes I am thankful for our men and women in uniform. Frogger, I too have raised/given several hundred dollars to the men and women in Iraq. For quite some time I was the Worth Vice President and then the Worthy President at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 3354. I am proud to say the we sent lots of needed equipment and HBA items to Iraq and Afganistan. And when home on leave.. We got several of them drunk for free before they had to go back and defend the freedoms and human rights of everyone in the world.



I am not dead yet

Frogger,
This is my first and most likely only comment for atleast a good while. I am currnetly serving aboard a ship that is out in Iraqi waters. Thank you for noticing all of us. I have just finished reading your ENTIRE blog. That tooks me a few days seeing as how I don't have much time. I would love to chat if you could spare the time. As you will see, I am married and in a very open relationship with my wife. Anyway, if you wouldn;t mind, my e-mail address is AdultFriendFinder Thanks again for noticing all of us out here.

Good post.Few of us have any idea what life could/would be without those that have went thru the hell of war to protect our freedom to live like we do.Those that don't understand that should just live in some of those 'better' countries for a while and they would come to their senses pretty damn quick!

So I noticed that AdultFriendFinder changed my e-mail address to fit them. I can't reply to e-mail as we are only standard members. However, our profile is being updated as we speak and it has my other contact info with. Again, I love reading your blogs and would love to chat or whatever you can call what it is we do nowadays.

Arrgh! this site and erasing my comments!

Pike2489: College will do that to you...Perhaps it;s all the learning. Hmmmm...

Arc_Angel2112: But you were fighting for me! I try to keep it neutral when it comes to the troops. Yes I have my opinions on the war but the last thing they need is us "exercising our rights" in a negative way. Thank you!

bardicman: Ahhh, but the military is VERY political...if only since the it exists to protect the Consititution. That said, my opinions are irrelivent and I will keep them to myself. Today is about the troops and vets. Thank you all.

jakblack36: I just read it. It was short and sweet and said everything. Plus you didn't bristle any feathers as I am wont to do.

FunTimesAhead01: You have my personal thanks...and admiration for actually being able to read all of my prattle I would be happy to chat with you. Check your mailbox in about 5 minutes.

Frnds4Play: Both are underappreciated and do work to protect us... the latter mostly get a bad name from bad cops...and writing those pesky tickets all the time.

RxSUGAR: Yes, I myself am guilty of this. That is why it's so important to pay attention to this day at least.

Right on girl, I am with you on this. I think we should appreciate the troops serving to protect our rights and our ablility to excercise those rights. Hopefully our troops as well as other nations troops will be able to return home safe, friends and family alike.

frogger,
Thank you for the blog, I served for 20 years. It is a very thankless job sometimes.

I come from a military background. My generation is actually the first to have no one serve. We chose college instead. But we still do what we can for those brave enough to don the uniform and fight. I've been a member of the Sons of the American Legion for 4 years. My stepfather is a Legionaire. My mother and sister are active in the Auxiliary of the Legion. The one thing to remember, the one thing we strive to accomplish is recognition, charity, and help for our veterans every day of the year. Whether it's an escort to church for the disabled vets in the VA hospital, to donating supplies and armor for the reservists in Iraq who don't have any, we do whatever we can to serve those that serve.

Well put, frogger. From one of those guys who served, I echo your feelings. This just continues to prove what a big heart you have.

Warm hug for you,

Just like to add to the above statement: Thank you from every one us, and let us hope that our leaders learn from the past and respect the sacrifices that you have made.

thickguy81 : Let's hope and pray for that.

excited045: No, thank you!

WildWon1982: I not sure how bad a statistic that is. My thought is that there may be a draft or mandatory service eventually...neither of which are bad. I just wonder how equally spread it will be.

GangBangCple: Absolutely

unlistedone: Thank you for the comment and your service.

Dear frogger....it's nice to hear from a fellow liberal who appreciates both the sacrifice and benefits that come with freedom.

WildWon1982 34M

11/12/2005 8:35 am

If they draft, I'll join the Peace Corps till I'm 26. It's not that I'm a coward, I just don't want to die for a cause I don't believe in. Give me a war worth fighting, and I'll even enlist. But I'm not putting my ass on the line so Bush can satisfy his own vendetta.

Ditto on ExcitedO45 comments. Too few thank you’s over the past few years. You have made up for it.

Amen to your praise of those in uniform! If it weren't for them, we wouldn't enjoy the freedoms that we have.

Frogger,
I tried to post to you again earlier today but it seems that AdultFriendFinder didn't like it very much. All that I wanted to say was that my ship e-mail is on my profile un MSN messenger name. If you look at my MSN info, it will give you my ship email address. Thats the one that I can check the easiest. Hope to hear from you soon.

Very well put Frogger...with so many dying for the wrong cause nowadays, its good to celebrate their sacrifice and to tribute those who came before us to defend them.

You have a true way with words and I'm sure all the vets would be thrilled if they knew such a gorgeous woman was thinking of them.

hotiowastud2: I hope so

WildWon1982: Well I certainly wouldn't condone a draft for an unjust war...no one should.

Thank you for your kind words of support for our troops and veterans. As a current drilling naval reservist who did 8 yrs of active duty I truly appreciate it when someone takes the time out of their busy day to salute the men and women who are willing to give their life to protect our way of life. This country has its problems but it is still the GREATEST country on the face of the earth. I want to echo your sentiments to those who have served and especially to those who are currently in harms way... thank you and come home safely... i will end this with the traditional naval saying...

fair winds and following seas.....
