    To the Vets that were in Nam, "Welcome Home." To all Vets and current active duty, "Thanks for your Service".

    Also, if you haven't ridden with the Patriot Guard, think about it.

    Don, in 1970 I was sitting on the Island of Iwo Jima. U.S. Coast Guard Loran Station me and 34 other Guys!! oh yea we had a dog...... There were 3 of us there from the South and soon found out the Japanese could not take a joke. We took their flag down and put up the Rebel flag(was kinda bored) man did we get into some trouble. I never saw a man yell and turn as red as the Chief of the station did. We did not do that again.

    I was in the Florida National Guard from 1963 to 1976....I was an E-7. (I saw a lot of changes during that time!) I was in Miami during the riots in the 1960's.

    The other day some one said to "welcome home" to me and I must say even after 37 years it still struck a nerve. It made me fell good I WILL always remember it and I'll try to pass it along when I can.

    Elber, I know what U mean. At my retirement cermony (in 1997)I thanked my Father and the other Veterans for their service. Needless to say there was not a dry eye left in the audiance. One man there was one of the first Navy Frogmen, I had given he a tour of my Cutter and gave him a unit hat. He was like a kid who just got a new toy. Sometimes a heart felt thank you can go a long way.
