With Tuesday Nov. 11th being Veterans Day here in the states, I would like to thank all of our veterans here at The FoRT for the time they spent serving our country. I personally did not have to serve in the military, but for all of you who did THANK YOU!
Please do not turn this into a political debate over the rights/wrongs of U.S.foreign policy, etc., but just as a means of thanking those who served and returned and to remember those who didn't.
Great idea Unk.
A heart-felt thanks to all that are serving or have served our great nation to keep us all safe. :up
Thank you for starting this thread Unklescott and thank you to our veterans.

Similiar day in Canada.
November 11 is called Remembrance Day in Canada (and Great Britian), when we too remember our veterans.

It was an awesome story-I wish I could remember his name. It was odd to actually hear something about this holiday in school- somehow, Veterans day is always regarded as just a 3 day weekend in most schools, and the meaning behind it is lost.
soooooooo many thanks to all of the veterans-You guys are awesome. I can't even begin to express my gratitude.
Do we have any Veteran members? Stand up and be recognized, we are thankful and proud. :clap
Thanks to all veterans here at the FoRT! :)
Thank you to all of the veterans we may have here at FORT !!! We all owe our most basic freedoms to your bravery :)
A warm heart-felt THANK YOU to ALL the veterans that have fought for our freedom.
