    I always salute the veterans on this day--particularly the now completely departed WWI vets. The battle of the Somme in particular was horrific.

    My moms cousin and close friend died at iwo jima. She saved all of his letters and a few years ago, I finally received them when my brother died. I treasure these letters. My dad was a vet and my bff was a vet from Vietnam who was exposed to agent orange. I love them all. Thank you jack for sacrificing your life. You are remembered.

    I always used to buy the red paper poppys that the old time vets would sell outside of the supermarket and put them on my pocketbook. I haven't seen them in years!
    Thanks, Obama :p

    My dad served in the Navy for 9 years. Always remember him and his brothers, who when they were 18 years old left the farm and went to serve their country.

    And always remember him and my uncles today.
    Thanks to all the vets.

    :salute:
