    As I have said before, I can never truly express my gratitude for what each and every veteran has done for me and our country. Thanks to you and every veteran you know!

    The only person available to protect you 24 hours a day is you.

  4. I'd like to join in and give my thanks to fellow veteran's! :D

    Rules for the Non-Military

    Dear Civilians,

    Here are a few of the areas where we would like your assistance:

    1. The next time you see an adult talking (or wearing a hat) during
    the playing of the National Anthem---kick their ass.

    2. When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American Flag in
    protest---kick their ass.

    3. Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the
    highest amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing
    otherwise, quietly pull them aside and explain how these veterans
    fought for the very freedom they bask in every second. Enlighten them
    on the many sacrifices these veterans made to make this Nation great.
    Then hold them down while a disabled veteran kicks their ass.

    4. (GUYS) If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you
    were. Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs) or Jungle Fatigues,
    telling others that you used to be "Special Forces," and collecting
    GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven years
    old. Now, it will only make you look stupid and get your ass kicked.

    5. Next time you come across an Air Force member, do not ask
    them, "Do you fly a jet?" Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot.
    Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking. (children are exempt).

    6. If you witness someone calling the US Coast Guard 'non-military' ,
    inform them of their mistake---and kick their ass.

    7. Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a parade, get
    on your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over
    your heart. Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough
    to be carrying her---of course, failure to do either of those could
    earn you a severe ass-kicking.

    8. Don't try to discuss politics with a military member or a veteran.
    We are Americans, and we all bleed the same, regardless of our party
    affiliation. Our Chain of Command is to include our Commander-In-
    Chief (CinC). The President (for those who didn't know) is our CinC
    regardless of political party. We have no inside track on what
    happens inside those big important buildings where all those
    representatives meet. All we know is that when those civilian
    representatives screw up the situation, they call upon the military
    to go straighten it out. If you keep asking us the same stupid
    questions repeatedly, you will get your ass kicked!

    9. 'Your mama wears combat boots' never made sense to me---stop
    saying it! If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore,
    could kick your ass!

    10. Bin Laden and the Taliban are not Communists, so stop
    saying 'Let's go kill those Commies!' And stop asking us where he is!
    Crystal balls are not standard issue in the military. That reminds me-
    --if you see anyone calling those damn psychic phone numbers, let me
    know, so I can go kick their ass!

    11. 'Flyboy' (Air Force), 'Jarhead' (Marines), 'Grunt'
    (Army), 'Squid' (Navy), 'Puddle Jumpers' (Coast Guard), etc., are
    terms of endearment we use describing each other. Unless you are a
    service member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them.
    That could get your ass kicked.

    12. Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member of the
    military, support our troops and their families. Every Thanksgiving
    and religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please
    remember that there are literally thousands of soldiers, sailors,
    marines and airmen far from home wishing they could be with their
    families. Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make
    every day.Without them, our country would get it's ass kicked."

    "It is the Veteran, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of
    the press.

    "It is the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of

    It is the Veteran, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom
    to demonstrate.

    "It is the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the
    flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the
    protester to burn the flag."

    Please pass this on so I won't have to kick your ass ! :-)

    "If you can read this, thank a teacher."
    If you are reading it in English, thank a Veteran."

    I never served in the Military. Back in 1969 when I graduated High School they had a lottery system, low numbers got drafted, mine was high enough that I missed having to go to Nam and hope that I am not thought any less of for not running out to sign up, although I fill guilty sometimes for not doing so. It takes a very brave person to join up and go fight in a war and I somehow want to think that If I was a young man today that I could do it but thats easy for one to say. Thank you to all the brave men and women past and present who have served our great country. May God bless you and yours.
