Happy Veterans Day!

There are 939,000 veterans in Pennsylvania, and nearly 700,000 of them served while we were at war. About 57,000 are WWII vets.

I was in the Army Reserves during the Persian Gulf war. I volunteered to go over, but was rejected after a very nice going-away party. My Sergeant Major told me at the time that they were keeping me as a secret weapon, but I think I was too old. My absence from that conflagration explains why we won so quickly.

Thanks, but save your appreciation for the real veterans. I was never in harm's way and was actually a shitty soldier.

Judging from that look in Sadie's eyes standing next to the cement pond I would pander to guess that she has a story to tell of the tomb of the unknown soiliers and the faded names upon many a nations statues and obtainable subterainian headstones that have been and are still in progress of becomming developable parcels?

Don't have to follow the rules of discovery in any circus or carnival venue?

Bangor Veterans Day ceremony was missing someone. His name was on the program. It was anticipated he would be there and speak. Who was it that did not show up? Joe Emrick. Need I say more?
