I am ashamed to say I neglected service for a woman, I was a signature away from the Marines, should have gone with the Marines!;) But then again, had things not gone the way they did, I would not have met my best friend, partner and spouse of soon to be 21years.:eek:
My Father (21yrs), son (6yrs) and daughter-in-law (4yrs) have all served in the USAF. God Bless them and God Bless all of you who have served this wonderful country. Thank You All!

My uncle was in the service stationed at CFB Cold Lake his entire career, and my great grandfather was a Civil War Vet from Spencer Iowa. Blessings on all who serve(d), and especially those who paid the ultimate price for us.

Thanks to all of you guys for your service.

Deaf Ear kept me out in '75. Even tried to fake my way in, but it didn't work. My Pop was a 23yr Air Force guy Tech Sgt Radar Ops.

I am not a Vet. I am truly thankful for all of you. From the combat vet to the mechanics, computer programmers, quarter masters, etc...Thank you for our freedom.

Last year I was invited to ride in Tulsa's Vets parade, as a supporter. I was honored and it was a very humbling experience.

My whole family served except myself due to scoliosis which I thought was bull but the Marine Recruiter said that is why I failed the physical. Anyway I truly want to thank all who have served no matter what capacity, you are all heroes in my book!!!!

I started riding in 1960. My mother bought me my first motorcycle. In 1964 I joined the Army and landed in the Army Security Agency (ASA all the way). We were the forerunners for what has become the National Security Agency (NSA). We were called the spooks, or sneeky petes. I was discharged in 1969, and went right back to riding my first Honda. A 305 Honda Dream. Last week my Doctors said NO MORE RIDING. This Veteran is sad to park his 2018 DCT Goldwing. It has a mere 30,000 miles, and we all know that is "just broke in". I am not happy to sell it, but the doctor and the wife will win this argument.

That is sad, but as the song says, you need to "know when to fold."
