To all former and active duty personnel

THANK YOU!


BTW, you get to eat for free at Applebee's on Vet's day, and Golden Corral on the following Monday night.

Your thanks are appreciated -- after all, you are all the reason why we did it! It sure wasn't for that guy in the big fenced-in house on Pennsylvania Ave.....

There are many in my family who are military. I've seen and experienced the sacrifices first hand. There is a certain kind of loyalty when it comes to this.

Thank you DX. And to your family as well because they had to sacrifice too.

Thank you each and every one. My wife and i have raised our boys to approach active service members, veterans, etc. and tell them "thank you for serving". I have see grown men get misty. Had a Viet Nam vet tell my 8 year old what is was like to come home and get called names and spit on.

Thank you all for sacrificing so much to keep me and my family free. Freedom is not free and you guys foot much of that bill.

You are welcome. My time in the service was back when it wasn't as appreciated as it is now. Nice change.

Your welcome, it's been an honor to serve. I joined the AF back in 84 and planned on doing 4 years, get some more schooling then get out. Come to find out I really enjoyed what I was doing and 26 years later I just started my terminal leave this October and will officially retired Feb 1st.

I've been out of the military since the early 90's, and today was the first time anyone ever thanked me for serving.

My GF thanked me right after she poured me a cup of coffee.

Thank you!

If you live in the Seattle area, go get your free car wash at Brown Bear.
