    To all of the veterans still with us and those who are not, thank you for putting your ass on the line so that the rest of the US population has it's freedom.

    Sorry to disagree with you ddp, but our Veterans Day is to honor U.S. veterans, not those who we fought. Their country can have a Veterans Day for them, if they so desire.

    GrandpaBW, Nam is not the only venue where US troops have been put to task and let's not forget that some ally countrymen actually had the balls to fight along side US troops. Shame on you!
    I do still appreciate your service and courage.

    Cyclops, you took my post wrong. I certainly appreciate the help that we had, from other countries. And, I never said anything about Nam in my post. I know that it wasn' t the only war we were in. My Father was a POW in Germany, for a year in WWII.

    I shake hands with every man and woman that I see, dressed in a military uniform.

    GrandpaBW, thank you and your Pop. Sorry if I offended you, that was not my intent. The only reason I mentioned Nam is that was an unnecessary occupation which was without true ally support and I see that you served there.
    Thanks again, I sometimes regret posting anywhere that involves sensitive topics.

    I meant to say that I met a few of them in Nam. They were helping our company and another company at the time.
