I Don't Give A Rat's Ass - It's Veteran's Day

I don't care what your take on war is.
I could care less what you think Clinton, Bush, or Obama has or hasn't done.
I could give a rat's ass if you are a republican, democrat (or America's new choice - socialist)
You can not deny the sacrifices that our service men and women have made for you.
For me.
Today is Veteran's Day.
Set aside your opinion and remember the people who are willing to do what most of us aren't - fight for our country (your country).
You and I owe them at least that.

That said:
Today I would like to thank all Veterans and Serviceman
for giving me my freedom.
I want to thank the Servicemen and women for continuing
to serve, so that my freedom is insured.

They are willing to do what I am not.
They are better and stronger than I.
For this I am grateful.

Today I especially would like to remember the women
who serve and have served our country.

The moms, daughters, sisters, and aunts.
Maybe your grandma.
The ones we forget about.

To these women I want to say
Thank You

You make me proud.

Well, there was no mail delivered today, the postman had the day off. The police station, court house and all Federal & City offices were closed today also. Tell me, were the Veterans working? I will bet (unless they work for the government)they didn't get the day off. Why do the Federal and City employees get the day off for 'Veterans Day' and the veterans, whose day this is in observance for, don't!!!!!! Something is wrong here.

Excellently done.

That pic you included I've seen before on the net, it's probably one of the most moving out there.
