We have a BIG family dinner to honor all the vets in the family. Afterwards we sit around a listen to their stories.The younger ones always love to hear about how Grandma was almost drafted to go to Viet Nam.

I'll bet that's a good story! I seem to recall a story of a child getting a draft notice long ago.

Talk about being forced to make a deal with the devil--the state itself is an infamous, blackguard liar, especially when we're talking KS and those advanced thinkers up at KU-HR who get away so often in Douglas County with sticking the public with false charges every time they poop their ignorant pants.

Guess being a terrorist is why Begin & Anwar Sadat were awarded the Nobel Peace price in the late '70's or early 80's.

Veterens day is the day all the veterens go to work while all state and bank employees have the day off.... makes a lot of sense

I went to work, went home, worked out, did homework, and went to bed, as always. I thought of my grandpa, who served, and whom I think about quite a bit anyway.

Bless those that protect us.
