Hey! My dad was there as of 1991!

Never served myself, but had a few in my family.

Dad: USMC 1969 to 1991. Paris Island, LeJeune, Pendleton, 29 Palms, LeJeune, 3 tours in Okinawa, and more TADs then I can count. He downplays it but, I am very proud of him. For the first 15 years of my life all I knew was life on and near the base. Bit of a change for us both when he retired.

The rest of the family: One cousin, Navy, 2 cousins, Army, 3 of my uncles, Air Force, 7 "brothers" and 3 "sisters" divided amongst all of the branches. I have 4 of them that are currently over in the sandbox, and I pray for the safe return of all of our men and women who are over there.

A sincear and heartfelt thank you to all of the veterans who post here. Thank you for keeping us all safe to enjoy the freedoms we have. It can never be said enough, and only those who serve and their families will ever know the true cost of freedom.

Kfox, thats the beauty of the American dream, it looks different for ever soul who seeks it. Everyone shouldn't and doesn't need to serve in the military as a rule and I do not support the draft ever. Generations after generations have mostly volunteered and paid forward the path to that dream by raising a hand or two for the flag when we needed it most.

Even today when we hear that teens and younger adults are lazy, over-educated, under-motivated and fat; throngs of "finest Kind" Men and Woman prove we still have the greatest generations yet to come, we still have the most awesome armed force in the world even if our President and most of the Repubi-Crat Bi-Parts are Dipsticks!!!!

Thats our saving Grace in these times of trials and tribulations the likes of which havent been seen since my Grandfather lost everything in the "Great Depression", (WTF did they call it great, should have been the God Awful Depression (G.A.D.)!!!), I digress....

Thanks again to all of you and your family Members Past and present that have paid prices most of us may never have to because of them! Merry Christmas!
