    Thumbs up You're welcome

    You're welcome!!!

    Speaking of Veteran's Day - do any of you ever take advantage of the Veteran's Day specials? I never have before but I think I will today.

    Going to TGI Friday's since they're having a BOGO for veterans.
    My wife was also going to Home Depot yesterday to get some supplies but told her to wait until today since HD is giving an extra 10% at check-out today with military ID (current or old).

    I think it's cool that companies do this

    Anyone else ever take advantage of these?

    You Will Respect My Authoritah!!

    Thank You and God Bless you U.S.A.!!
    As a Veteran I choose Veterans Day to return the thanks we, as Veterans, get throughout the year.
    Every weekend at ballgames, races, Church gatherings, community happenings & about any type of event where people congregate as well as social media sites, web pages, news forums and the many other E-social things that bring this country together Veterans are applauded, thanked, heroed and honored. Anyone who has served deserves those honors!
    So first I would like to say thank you to the American People as a whole. Thank you for being the great Nation we are that remembers and respects the men and women who protect you and your neighbors, families and friends! I would like All Americans to know that the vigilance we show in reminding Veterans how much they mean to us by honoring them the way we do nullifies the sacrifices that the American Fighters have made in their lives to offer you that protection. Thank You Americans, for thinking of US, honoring US and Loving US!
    Veterans Day was established as a National day of recognition for those that serve or have served our country. Just because you never wore a uniform or took a bullet or pulled a letter out of your best friends breast pocket so that his family could read his good bye does not mean you have not served. Every American Serves! Every American has a Son, daughter, brother, sister, father, mother, aunt, uncle, best friend or some type of acquaintance that either has served or is actively serving now. As a country we gather in prayer groups, take a few minutes a day just to think about them, send them letters and care packages, drop money in a hat……many ways every day we support our troops.
    For the wives & husbands raising their Soldiers Children alone, thank you!
    For the Mothers who wrench their hands in prayer, thank you!
    For the Fathers who beam with pride, Thank You!
    Giving your own life for your country is not the greatest sacrifice, it is giving your Sons or Daughters life, giving your brother or sister, your mother or your father, your best friend, your grand child, your niece your nephew your teacher. Many Americans have been lost defending this, the Greatest Nation on Earth, the minute they were gone another great American Fighter stood up in their place on the battlefield and Many great Americans stood up in their place at home. We raise their children, support their families give their wives and husbands a shoulder to cry on. We pray for them and the ones they left behind.
    We hold Veterans in the highest regard in the United States Of America; there simply is no higher honor to be had. We, the American People, have made it that way. So on this National day of recognition I say Thank You America for being a Nation and a People worth dying for!

    Last year we went to Arbys for lunch and they were given Vets a free sandwich.
    They actually accepted my USMC Tatoo as "Military ID"
