Legion my brother, all who have served are deserving of respect for that service.

Thank you all for yours.

Legion 404 Jan 2018 7:27 a.m. PST

Yes Sir ! Agreed ! thumbs up As I said on another thread, I will Never disregard/dismiss another's service, no matter what their job was/is. I'm Not saying anyone here is doing that. I Only want to make my point clear. I have the greatest respect for most Vets I have met or have been associated with.
