No, thankfully, but I want to thank every service person out there for their sacrifice for me and our country. We'd be nowhere w/o You!

No but my hubby is a disabled vet & his dad died from cancer related to agent orange. It was years later so I don't count that.

No close family. Extended family I didn't know well, people my family served with, kids I went to school with...
And my brothers friend who we're sharing the day with, 10 people he served with. The stories he shares about those men... It's so sad... There's no words.

But to those who had lost loved ones serving this great country, my condolences to you.

Not here. But i had two great grandparents and a great-uncle who died serving Germany during WWII. its brave that they were fighting to protect Germany, but at the same time its sad that they were under the leadership of a demented and disturbed führer.

In WWII, far enough removed and long enough ago to be a relative but not "family".

Thanks Fresh--this thread should remain non-political. Thank you to all who are serving and have served in the past. Thank you to the families who have sacrificed their loved ones for all of us. Words cannot express the depth and breadth of the gratitude in my heart as I write this.

More importantly Romney has a really aggressive stance on using our men to go into Iran and stuff. Both will use them for UN interests.

But seriously I don't think this comment section should get political. Im not gonna post here anymore.

Just thanks to our service members.

Hmm my grandfathers both served in World War 2 but neither actually saw combat...however I have an ancestor who was wounded at Shiloh in the Civil War. Although my ancestors have fought in most US wars none died as far as I know.

Thank you to all the families for supporting our soldiers and sacrificing so much for the defense of our nation. Thanks to the soldiers and vets as well.
