50 years ago this past June. USAF 25251. Hope all you fellow veterans have a great day and let’s take a moment to remember those that didn’t come home.

Navy 1966-1970. Still an experience I remember like it was much more recent. I think only those who have served fully understand the experience.

Happy Veteran's day. What did y'all do? I rang my bell in Loveland, then drove in a short parade.


Another quality post.

Went to the VA Hospital in Dublin Ga. with group of Ret Military. Visited with some of the patients and had lunch with them. The Guys up there really just enjoyed having someone to talk with.

I missed our local parade this year (reportedly the largest Veterans Day Parade in the state) -- first time in a long time. Spent a good bit of the day taking care of a Marine Corps Wife (who spent a few years in the service of her Corps on the far side of the planet). Enjoyed all the texts that came in from my brother Leathernecks on our Birthday and on the 11th marking the day.

Several brothers and I noticed that we have passed the mark now where we have spent more time in the 1st CivDiv (as adults) than we spent on active duty ... Still feel more comfortable in the company of fellow Marines than with most civilians...

Semper Fi,
John

This past Veterans Day was kind of awkward in a way. I mean for those members who have already made their intro's and the time and place/s they sacrificed for this country have already been disclosed in past posts. So, to chime in on Monday to me was a little odd. Case in point there was very little posted from other vets tied to this site. Not sure what else to say...maybe its just as well. Just to be thinking of those who gave their lives so others may live on this special day.
