  • Veteran's Day

    I'm not a veteran myself, but some of my favorite plumbers are. So I would like to wish good tidings to those who have served with self- sacrifice.

    I also hope our boys and girls get home by Christmas. I know it won't happen, but maybe if we put enough pressure on, we can make it happen.

    Sorry if this seems political, but our children have been there for a long time.

    I'm with you Dog. Also, I do not consider your post political in nature.
    The meaning of Veteran's Day is lost on many unfortunately.

    Time, cost, or quality; pick any two but you can't have all three.

      flew the flag

      I am a Vet! Navy type here.
      I won the lottery in 1969 and enlisted in the Navy.
      I worked on the electrical systems of the A-4 skyhawk jet.

      I was only one of three houses that flew the flag in my sad!

        I did not serve but I have two sons who are vets one of which just got back from Iraq. I have a 30' flag pole at home with a flood light on it and the flag flies 24/7. It is important to remember those who protect our liberties.

          Thanks dog, I knew the day would come when you'd get around to saying something nice about me.

          All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

              Nice to read your views guys! Having done 8 years in the RAF, with Belfast and the Falklands, and 7 years i the Royal Danish Air Force, it gives a warm feeling to read your comments. My son appreciates it too, he's in Afghanistan right now,serving with the Danish forces & sends his regards, & thanks for the American support he's getting down there.
