    Just because your car could breakdown doesn't mean you should always walk. It does mean that you shouldn’t forget how to walk.

    Amen.

    I also regret I have not had a chance to shake one of your hands and put a cold beer in the other one - yet, Terry C. I am going to have to make that right this year. Great Post!

    Every time I see a vet in uniform I shake their hand and thank them for their service. If in a bar I offer to buy a beer, I will do that till the day I die.

    Tnx, Terry, Hunter. I LIKE to talk up the Corps. You know that. Terry, I will call your remark a THANK YOU, making you numbern 35 since Viet Nam. The first was at The Wall, in '93 from a young fellow who was not BORN yet when I did my tour! Shameful, back then. I NEVER allow an obvious vet to get by me without shaking his hand. Ha! I remember, in an ambush, the guy next to me was wounded. He yelled "Corpsman". (you younger fellows need to know a Corpsman [ capitol C ] is a navy EMT-like guy). Their job was to keep Marines alive. Instead of coming over, he threw his medical kit-bag! I don't care; Squid, Flyboy, Army, Coastie, Marine. They ALL signed the bottom of the same page! Everyone had to do their part in the BIG MACHINE. The gals too! Thank you two, and every other "swinging ... (oops! Can't say that here.)" person that wore a uniform! Edit: My dad said he would disown(?) me if I joined the service instead of going to college. Found out later, he took every one of my letters to work to re-read them to his fellow workers. Terry

    Although I wasn't personally in the military, my dad and brother were both in the Marine Corps. My dad always taught us to have respect for the military and the men and women who serve their country. I can do nothing but give my respect to people who did something that I was to chicken **** to do.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    Tnx, CM. Nothing meant against civvies, sorry. Today's Military is completely a choice. But, in the '70s and '80s, as a Milwaukee cop, I saw many young men be given a choice... military or jail. The judges were PARTIME RECRUITERS! HA! Take care. TTC

    I enlisted at the height of Viet Nam war, I did not have the money for college, and the thought of going to Canada to avoid the draft never even entered my mind.

    As citizens we do not have the right to pick and choose when we support our country and when we don't, our responsibilities as Americans is to support our country period. Some people seem to think you have the right to oppose something with out the courage to actually face the danger of protecting the freedoms we all enjoy, all of which were paid for in blood by better men.

    Note, none of this is politics its patriotism...

    You bet it was a THANK YOU! I can't imagine what it was like for guys coming home from Vietnam during the late 1960s early 1970s.

    When I got out in 1976, people were still calling us baby killers, assassins, and spitting at us in some cases. The trash cans in the mens rooms of the airport in Charlotte (Near Ft. Jackson in Carolina), were full of Class A uniforms from guys that didn't want people to know they were in the Army, so they could just go home in peace. A lot of them still had all the unit citations and medals on them.

    I wore mine home to Phoenix, and sure enough, three teenage girls started calling me "Killer," and "Murderer," when I went to pick up my duffel at the baggage claim. I was so proud of who I was and what I had accomplished, but that trip home was like a bad dream. Thank God, that we now celebrate our young veterans, and are able to seperate the politicians from the soldiers they send into harms way.

    So again, Thank you Terry, and ALL the other vets here. - Terry S. 1/41 Field Artillery 56th FAB 1973-1976 US Army

    I do sometimes regret getting out of the Navy. But after about a year in the Anbar Province followed by six months in Indonesia for the 2005 tsunami relief, I just couldn't take it anymore. Too much death. Too much destruction. I started to crack. Got out as soon as my contract was up.

    Yet, now that time has passed and wounds have healed, I do sort of miss it.

    If I would have stuck it out, I would have had a 30 yr pension by now and possibly made E-9, E-8 for sure. Had all the training available at the
    time but the Army changed after Vietnam (Which I did not participate in) and it was still evolving when my hitch ended in 1984. Decided that
    better opportunities were available in the "Civilian" world.

    I still miss it to this day.

    I was selected to spend some time as an Army Recruiter (11 years) back in 84. I was always amazed at how many parents brought in thier kids with major law violations thinking that the "Military or Jail" option was still availible.
