    Default Veteran's Day Nov 11, 2006

    Well, I know I'm a day early, but I want to say thank you to all you vets out there for your sacrifices...

    And, as has been tradition in past several years, it's always cool to see the VSF vets who served with honor for various nations representing themselves, their country, and family, so post your (and family member's) service:

    Me: medic, US Air Force, 1996-1999
    Wife: nurse, US Air Force 1996-2004
    Brother (Phoenix): medic, US Air Force, 1994-~2000
    Sister-in-law: medic, US Air Force, 1994-~2000
    Father: Ranger, US Army, Vietnam 1971-1972
    Grandfather: pilot, B-25J Mitchell & P-61 Black Widow, US Army Air Corps WWII
