    DEFINITION OF A VETERAN A Veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life."

    No offense intended to those who feel otherwise, I never wanted to be thanked, and still don't, but I could have done without the derision when I was wearing the uniform.

    Well put, Tom. It was a job that I was proud to do, but made me wonder why at the time. Being told not to wear the uniform off-base in certain places, being an E-6 and having your kids eligible for the school hot-lunch program because of my income level. And a few other things. I'm glad the sentiment has changed over the years.

    Well Tom, you are being thanked whether you like it or not. Having been proud to have done your job is a good thing, but it was a job you did not have to sign up for, but did anyway.

    THANK YOU!
    Thank all of you who have served!
