     Being one myself I want to extend a big thank you to you all, when we served we gave Uncle Sam a blank check to write up to and including our lives. Have a great and safe day. Best to you and yours.

    As a civilian who has never served in any military duties, I am humbled by the bravery of all who have served in any capacity. A sincere "Thank You" sounds like a simple gesture, but that's all a Veteran would want.     ---- THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE ----

    My family has a history of military duty & all the men in my tree have seen combat - both voluntarily & thru the draft as well. I was bornded at Fort Ord Military Hospital/Base during the Vietnam War, as my father had his # called and showed up as asked. Gramps walked into the Navy recruiters office and asked for a pen to sign up for WW2. Etc.. et. al.

    BUT - none of that makes me "military" or helps me understand what soldiers go through, both before & after seeing a tour of duty. That is why I have multiple times questioned the use of military jargon on this wgt.com & other venues - when it is used to describe a sports match. War & Battle are strong words and we should use them sparingly and resectfully for those who served in our strong & proud military forces.


    Sincerely, I am Yancy

    Thanks to all the others that served.

    RESPECT!

    As Yancy noted - let vets and active duty folks know you appreciate them when you  see/meet them.
