    I must thank all the veterans who made my country what it is today and fought for our many freedoms. Maybe we didn't join for the same reasons, but we all worked toward the same outcome. For that, I thank you.

    Been in the Air Force since 2001 myself. Are there any others? I know of ThePatriot and welcome our newcomer Zarband, but I'm sure there are more vets out here.

    Veterans Day is over here in Korea, but those on the other side of the international date line still have some hours left.

    They need a veterans day song don't you think? Not that Lee Greenwood guy either, something with a catchy beat ya know.....btw greenwood was a draft dodger during the vietnam war (just more useless knowledge I thought I'd throw out there).
    Thanks for the welcome there Unwonted, much appreciated....whereabouts in Korea are you spent a year there myself....
