    For a few years we have had the idea to start identifying those among who have served, mainly so we can honor you all as a group and individually.

    If you don't mind, simply post the branch of service you served in so we can start our list.

    Thank you all!

    Bender has also assured me this thread will not be hijacked.....
    Please treat it as if it were the educational forums....

    i second that, and respect and thank a soldier anytime you see one, its not hard at all to do

    don't just do it on memorial day, these guys like to know they are appreciated

    i have the freedom to say what i want to whoever i want everyday and those guys are the reason
