On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918, World War One finally came to end. The conflict had cost over ten million lives, reshaped the map of Europe, and set the stage for the bloodiest conflict ever seen. So take the time to thank a veteran. A half a world away and 143 years and one day eariler, in a small bar called the Tun Tavern, the United States Marine Corp was born. 232 years later, the Marine Corp has grown in to the baddest military force of its size in the world.
God bless America from sea to shining sea!
God bless those who do not wage war..
We will remember them, whether they be enemies or friends. We will remember them.

could you state a couple of just wars?
In a society so lacking in heroes, so immersed in the bs of pop culture, at least we still have the vets. I'm damned proud that my own father was an Army platoon leader (in-country 1970: C Co./5th Bn./12th Inf./199th Light Infantry Brigade "The Red Catchers"), I can only count the number of close friends whose fathers served in uniform on one hand, not one of them has a C.I.B. I for one have little to worry about in the future, because we will always have those that take on their call of duty. I can only hope that when I take my commission, I will live up to the legacy, and not let my fellow men down.

Take it else where ladies. This is about the people, not the wars.
God bless all who died for their countries.
