    We know there are shows this week... the question is: Is there a Monday show?

    I'd say yes.

    I've often found it odd that as a veteran, I don't have the day off. Not that a day off means much, but at least it's some small way of saying "thanks."

    If we're going to observe all kinds of holidays, wouldn't it at least stand to reason that, as a vet at least, I shouldn't have a day off to observe what I've done for the nation? Any job I've had after the military doesn't really do anything to honor vets.

    I had a boss once who asked his bosses if he could give me a day off for Veterans day. They said no. He gave me the day off anyway.

    Howard says he fought in 'Nam so he deserves the day off.

    So it is only a federal holiday?
    Private businesses don't have it off?

    If you were a Jewish vet you could have off for dozens of holidays throughout the year. And I'm thankful for your service and thankful you are alive, but the purpose of the military should be to defend our country, not embark on discretionary wars.

    Not a Jewish vet....but not sure how that matters.....:dontknow:

    It was not my role to decide on what wars I did or did not partake in...I did what I did because that is what my contract with the government said I should do. And to be honest, I sometimes did what I believed and did some things that I didn't think needed to be done. But never to the degree that I thought a mutiny was warranted.

    The military is what it is. It's the same on all sides. We just do what needs to be done depending on our beliefs.

    One thing you learn fighting an enemy...You learn to understand what they're fighting for. Even though you may think they're wrong.

    I have it off, but I have to work the rest of the week because I'm taking next week off. My employer is spiteful like that.

    I don't have it off.

    But I cleaned heads and painted for most of my service.

    So. I really didn't earn it anyways.
