As a prospectivve military person, i just want to say thanks. Today is not about the parties. Today is not about work. Today is not about you. Today is about all of our soldies. Fighting and fallen. They risk their lives so we don't have to. To the fallen, death is an honor but not prefered. A huge thanks to every soldier who ever lived and is living. Thank you.

I'd like to thank my cousin James Huffman, an ex-United States Marine.

And a lot of my great-uncles who fought and served in World War II

I praise the courage of our troops

during the Malvinas/Falklands conflict

against the United Kingdom.

The Ground troops, they were unskilled, yet

fought to their best; And the Air Force, they

really fought with courage in the skies.

Poor ground troops, I have to say. Most of them

were conscripts, but still, they did what they could.

I salute them all.

My grandfather's a WWII vet, too. He was stationed in Japan after they dropped the bombs. *shudder* He's still alive, and has survived far longer than the doctors said he should. :)

And how I could forget, San Martin, ¡El Libertador

de SudAmerica! he liberated Argentina, Chile, and Peru

from the Spanish! And Manuel Belgrano, he made our flag...

Many lost their lives fighting for independence...

I salute all of them, too.

That's good news! :D

I'd like to say thanks to everyone who has ever served in the armed forces, and the police, fire department, and paramedics that help us out back home :D

While this is originally meant as a day to remember US troops, I'd still like to use the opportunity to thank my grandfather on my mothers side.

He had just been enlisted before the second world war broke out, and fought against the german invaders on multiple ocasions as they advanced northwards trough the country.

At the battle of Gratangen, the larges battle between Norwegian and German troops fought during the war, he participated. The German troops came under the cover of night and ambushed the Norwegian camp in the bottom of a valley they deemed to be safe. Mortar shells raining over their tents and the sivilian buildings of the valley.

They were forced into a fighting retreat. My grandfather got hit by a bullet, and thrown down into the snow. The bullet had hit the chamber of his rifle, which he had held over his chest as he ran for shelter. If it had hit an inch higher up or lower down, I would never have come to be.

He later picked up the rifle of a dead comrade, and helped cover the retreat of the main force.

He's a hero in my book, like so many other soldiers who have fought for their country and for a good cause. I salute them all.

It's too bad not many people feel the same way towards the armed forces. For god's sake people were sending death threats to some marine who threw a dead puppy off of a cliff.

can i thank osma???

Screw Osama Bin Laden.

You know why this war ain't in america? Cause we ain't pussies like they are (not being racist) In fact I say that to all these foreign wars. Yeah we didn't succeed in Vietnam, but what about Korea? or Iraq? hell, even when the brits. Took over we stood our ground, and we'll do the same in this damn war.

I wish to thank my great grandfather who served in the Navy during WWII.

Also, I'd like to thank my Uncle who was in Iraq.

And lastly, thank you to all of our veterans and currently enlisted soldiers.

Oh man, this is going to become a witch hunt, better be careful with your words, Matt, most people here are proud Americans and they will get pissed off if you are proud of what that man did, assuming you are talking about the same Osama we are all talking.

i watch my words carefully to besides i know what really happen. but i am starting to think these topic is getting to become politics. And theres nothing wrong to be proud of anything

As long as you don't talk about it here. OR else it's going to be hard to protect you and I'll have to lock the topic.

Yes, and most Americans (including me) wish a Black widow would crawl up osama's ass.
