i love my country. im proud of the time i served and proud of others who served and are still in the mix. i always try and make it a point to notice if someone was in the service. my Grandfather piloted a B-17 in WWII and my Father fought in the vietnam war. so the next time you see the old guy wearing his Navy hat, or sporting a faded forearm tattoo showing their pride for their unit or particular branch, let them know you appreciate their service. because there's no tellin what that individual went through to be alive and standing in front of you at that moment.
