    Default Veterans Day

    Take a moment to remember our Veterans on this day. Those currently serving around the world, those no longer on active duty, and those who live only in our hearts and memories.

    Salute to my Grandfather, Dad, and Father-In-Law:

    H. Fisher Sr Royal Army Medical Corps WWI Greece, France. RIP
    H. Fisher Jr US Army Air Force WWII Guam, Saipan. RIP
    D. Jerge US Army WWII France and Germany
    In Arduis Fidelis
    Faithful in Adversity

    Since I am on duty today...

    A tip of the leather and a heartfelt thank you to those to whom we can never repay for their sacrifices.
    ‎"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

    I want to salute my Dad,Gordon D.Hesson US Army,my Uncle,John Douglas Hesson USAF,my younger brother David D.Hesson US Army,My Uncle Lowell Chaffin US Army,and my cousin Timothy Willingham US Navy to name a few.
    I also served in the Navy and though I didn't see combat beyond steaming circles around Khadaffi's Line of Death,my efforts continued to protect the Rights of US citizens to freely speak their minds and live their lives as they see fit to do.
    To those that appreciate the sacrifices made today,in the past and in the future,I say Thank you for caring.
    For those that protest at the funerals of those killed in service,I still say"You're welcome".

    As posted in another forum:

    Remember November 11th is Veterans Day.

    It's the soldier, sailor, marine and airman, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

    It's the soldier, sailor, marine and airman, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

    It is the soldier, sailor, marine and airman, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who
    allows the protester to burn the flag.

    If you were there - Welcome home brother.
    If you weren't there- thank the brother that was.

    If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you can read this in English, thank a soldier.
