    Yes, a big Thank You to all the Vets and all the sacrifices they made.

    I will add my father, my uncles, my godfather, brother and my cousin.

    Yes, thanks to all the vets out there. Regardless what people think politically, these folks are just doing their job and it's a thankless and very low-paying one at that....The treatment of our vets at VA hospitals is very shameful--disgraceful.

    I never served. Strongly thought about joining the National Guard in the latter part of the 1980's as a college teen. Spoke to recruiters and other students extensively. Basically, I wanted to do it for financial reasons (tuition break), but worked fulltime doing construction work during summers (6 days a week--9-10 hrs a day) and couldn't take the time away (2-4 weeks per summer).....At that point in time, Nam was long over (15 years?) and war seemed like it'd never happen again anyway....Little did I know Desert Storm was right around the corner :huh:

    Speaking of JI vets, [b]Vinny025[/b] and moderator [b]GOB[/b] are vets...[b]Maxman[/b] comes from a family with strong military ties.

    Former JI poster [b]Ted in Evansville[/b] (Veitnam?) is also a vet--His son Sean Bennett was quite a RB prospect for the New York Giants as a rookie in 1999, before injuries destroyed his NFL career so quickly--He's now with Ottawa (CFL).

    Thanks for all the props, although I was left out. ;)

    I was a flight medic stationed at Griffiss AFB and then at Fort Drum from 1990-94. I was deployed for Hurricane Andrew in Florida City, and then to Mogadishu. 10th Mountain Division, "Let's find the coldest spot on earth, where there are no mountains, and put the 10th Mountain there." :D
