May God comfort the spirits of my brothers who never made it back home. And look over those who fight the wars of today and tomorrow.

Greetings, thanks, and well wishes to all my fellow veterans and their families.

Whether we were active, guard, reserve, or coast guard (Just kidding guys :P), our sacrifices have made this country what it is today.

Maybe you served in Europe, Korea, or South East Asia. Perhaps you jumped into Panama, invaded Grenada, kept peace in the Balkans, fought through the streets of Mogadishu, or toppled Saddam's regime (Twice). Some of us never had to serve a combat tour, but we raised our right hand, and swore to something bigger than ourselves (Even if it was involuntary).

All vets have given some....some have given all.

I spent the entire day working, while my wife who is still active duty has enjoyed a four day weekend. While on my two hour drive from my last appoint to the office, I noticed the local VFW having a BBQ. I stopped in and supported them with a burger purchase. I probably could have stayed for hours talking to folks, and everyone was asking me about my clothing (I wear military camo scrubs for my job).

Hope everyone had a good one, and any vets attending any of my rallys can always count on a cold one around the fire (Larry...you left before the fire!)

Thank you one more time...

In France, November the 11th is a commerative day for the armistice in 1918 but it's not , for me, the only day , I think about all these soldiers , dead for my country... i live in the north of France and everywhere I go for my job ( I collect medical waste ), there is always a military cemetery near my road and I always thing they were only 20/ 25 years old and they were here for my freedom ! thank you to all these guys and all vets so I have always wanted to say really thank you to a survivor instead of having only a thought for them ...
and that 's becamen a reality ...
In may, LeÔla ( my wife) & I were comen back in USA, Chicago for a congress and we decided to drive on the Route 66 in Illinois ; Arriving at Springfield, ill, we stopped at the SHEA route 66 museum: what a place ( see my blog to find it :AIRSTREAM, HARLEY-DAVIDSON and The American Dream in FRANCE.: CHICAGO, HARLEY et la ROUTE 66 (suite).... ) and an old man , Mr SHEA was the guide...
When we talked him we were from France, he became happy and began to explain us that he were the D-Day in Normandy, France and showed all pictures from there and all the commemorative trips he did as a WW2 veteran.... incredible, he were proud and it was THE place to thank him great !!!!

here is Mister SHEA, you can meet it :

Thank you one more time.

I was thinking just what the other Neil was thinking. It's nice to know there are Frenchmen who remember. Thanks Bruno.
