    been planning my eating spree for a couple of weeks now. Last year it definitely got out of hand, might have to keep myself in check this time.

    Let me know how Corral's new chocolate fountain is. If it's good, I'm camping under that [itch bay].

    On topic, Thanks again to all vets, but I would like to specifically recognize the WWII vets. We are losing these heroes rapidly. They truly are 'The Greatest Generation' this nation has produced.

    I knew this was the real reason you joined. That and you felt a calling after listening to several Toby Keith songs.

    Thank you to every man and woman to ever serve our country in the military. You're the reason we're the greatest country in the world. My nephew just graduated boot camp at Parris Island a few days ago and is now a Marine. Very proud of him.

    You dont have a VA card? Ive actually never been questioned when going to one of these places on Vets Day. Ive also read that if you had an older picture of yourself in uniform that would suffice.

    There is just something about seeing a WW2 or Korean vet decked out with a look on his face that says "I may be 85 years old, but I'll still kick anybody's ass that I have to" that makes be proud to be an American.
