Re: Happy Veteran's Day

Thank you!!

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

Re: Happy Veteran's Day

Thank You! I've had to work every Vet day for the last ten effin years!

I think we should make it a holiday that vets only, have the day off with pay!

Keep on Truckin' Tim

Re: Happy Veteran's Day

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

— Lt.-Col. John McCrae

Re: Happy Veteran's Day

Thank you to all those who've served.

I also will be working today and tomorrow. I could get behind giving the paid day off to only vets.

I also like the idea of moving the observed holiday to the day after Thanksgiving, creating the only bona-fide 4 day weekend.

THERE'S NO SUBSTITUTE FOR EXPERIENCE
