My hubby is a retired Air Force colonel. He spent years flying active duty, then going into the Air Force Reserves. We were out of town this weekend at a family wedding- had a crazy fun time but got up sooner than we wanted to this morning to drive home from Austin to Dallas to beat the cold front and rain coming in this afternoon and to get Toby out of his imprisonment, which was really spa lodging. We then drove our rental car back to the airport and decided to stop off for a bite to eat because I'm too worn out to cook. Hubby was wearing his Air Force sweatshirt. We decided to stop by California Pizza Kitchen because we hadn't been there in years and we were in the mood for pizza. The manager stopped by, thanked hubby for serving our country, then told him his meal and drink today were comped. In addition he gave him a coupon for another free meal. It turned out to be a $17 savings, so we gave the waiter a huge tip and will also pay the kindness forward in some way. Thank you CPK for your kindness today!

I am so proud of my grandparents. They will always be remembered. They were both USAFFE members.

Thanks to all of our veterans.

Especially my late father, who was a young 3 tour Marine in the Pacific theater, and my FIL, who was career AF and fought with Chennault in the CBI with the Flying Tigers. Sons of the Great Depression and members of 'The Greatest Generation' who built lives out of air and determination.

I find it a national shame that so many veterans end up homeless. But I don't think the thank yous are empty, nor are they worthless. If more people had thanked Vietnam vets when they returned instead of spurning them, their fates would have been much different. I come from a long line of soldiers, and was married to a Vietnam vet many years ago. None of them ever felt that "thank you for your service" was unwelcome. They would all stand up, shake your hand, and say "it was my privilege."

Thank you dborgers I called & thanked my best friend of 43 years yesterday & that's exactly what he said.I then cooked dinner for my 72 year old neighbor who served & when I went over & sat down with him he said thank you I said no thank you!He said your're the only person to say anything to me today.So sad we forget.I agree it's not right how some of our vets have been ignored but a thankyou may be the highlight of their day not meaningless at all.God Bless America

My DH is a Viet Nam Vet. Very few people know that is he is one or that he received a Purple Heart. He still bears the shame of that war and remembers all too well how he was treated when he returned, as many of the Viet Nam Vets do. For too many of them, Thank you has come a little too late while others are embracing it, which I hope is helping to heal the shame of a war they had no choice of being sent in. My DH was paying his way through college, his draft number was 16. He knew he would be drafted once he completed College, since he was paying his way through school, he decided to enlist because he knew it was inevitable and going to Canada wasn't something he would consider.

I'm grateful to see those who are serving today are receiving the recognition they so rightly deserve. I live in a Military Community, the Largest MC Base on the East Coast is located close to me. Military families are my neighbors, their children attend the schools, participate in sports and other school activities, while their dads/moms are serving our Country. I have to give a lot of credit and a special thank you to the Military Spouses for their sacrafices, they are the ones keeping things together at home and caring for the children, while their spouses are serving overseas.



The number of homeless Veterans from the Viet Nam, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars is overwhleming and very sad to see. I feel we owe them so much more.

There are many programs you can support to help these Vets-

You can go to this link to click daily, each click helps provide food for homeless Veterans.

You can also shop at the Veterans Site Store, each item you purchase provides a meal for a Veteran.

Veterans Village of San Diego :: Stand Down Meaning & History

Quote:
You don't leave anybody outside the wire. If you've got wounded outside the wire, you go get them, regardless of the cost."
Stand Down Founders, Robert Van Keuren and Dr. Jon Nachison

Stand Down was started with belief in the triumph of the human spirit over extraordinary odds. It grew out of a conviction that the overwhelming number of homeless veterans on the streets of America is unacceptable, and that the veteran community itself must respond.

Stand Down is an intervention that was conceived from the ground up specifically for veterans, by veterans.
