A veteran is an individual (male and female) who sacrificed and dedicated a part of their lives and answered the call in times of peace and war in defense of their country.  I will always admire those who made that commitment and am honored to have served with them during our country's needs.  Thanks to all who served and always remember those who had made the ultimate sacrifice along with the veterans who eventually followed their fallen comrades into the hereafter.

True. Anybody who serves in the military puts their lives on the line. How much sacrifice is required is totally out of their hands, and therefore all should be honored for their service and for their willingness to put themselves at risk.

This is a bit of a rare photo of my namesake uncle. He was Navy all the way from the time he was a small boy. One problem though, try and try and try, he could not swim. The Navy wouldn't take him. On November 7th, 1941 he joined the Coast Guard.  (The same day my Dad was commissioned in the Marine Corps)  One month later, the Navy dropped the swimming requirement and he was on his way to the Pacific.   The next 37 years he wore a Navy uniform serving in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam.  RIP Senior Chief Boatswain's Mate Loudon!
