I work in a very democratic office. We had to chose between MLK Day and Veteran's Day this year. We unanimously chose MLK day, so my ass is at work today.

since you have to work in a very political office at least it's democrats, i don't know if i could work in an office full of republicans very long without getting fired. If i worked with a bunch of Democrats i would probably get fired eventually too but it would take longer, thankfully i work in an office where everyone understands we should not discuss politics or religion.

I wish most people could understand this.

Thank you to all the people who served our country.

I am at work today, I can't remember ever having veterans day off other than when in school. But traffic was a BREEZE.

Yes I am a vet, my dad served 30 years, my bro in law 25 years, 4 cousins in the Army, and tygerladys daughter is in the service now. She just got back from Iraq and received a bronze star :) She also gradurated from West Point and is a capt.. So I might seem off the wall at times, but I am more down to earth then you might expect. cr****

Wait, Ron, are you saying you're a vet because your family was in the military?

canexplain

No I was in from 68-71. I think Tomaz and me had this fight a couple of years ago but also when I was in I was a member of the SDS, got thrown in Soldiers Field during the 68 Dem riots but felt I needed to pay back the US for what they gave me. I could have got 10 years in the brig if things had gone the wrong way. cr****

Your daughter got a bronze star? That is impressive and I'm not being sarcastic. They don't give those things to just anybody. What did she do to earn the medal, Ron?

Yea that is pretty cool. I know this might sound strange but she can't tell us because she said if all the details came out, some people could still die. So I respect her even if I don't know the details. And thanks Tom ..... cr****

We watched what I consider to be the most emotional thing I've ever seen on TV (HBO) last night. "Section 60." A documentary on the section of cemetery at Arlington that has been deemed the burial site of all our Iraq soldiers. It was focussed around the mothers and fathers, wives, brothers, and children, and how they're dealing with their loss. It was done very tastefully yet I still felt we were invading someone's private moments of pain and sorrow. It's like you hear the numbers everyday, but you can't fathom it until you see the actual headstones.

Just prior to that show was one on those who have come back home alive, but with various injuries from bombings, etc.

These are kids. They had dreams. And they were brave enough to sign up to fight for our country. I believe they said 60% of those that return have been traumatized by injuries, amputations, stress related disorders, etc...

Thank you just doesn't seem enough...But, I thank you and everybody before you and after...Thank you.

I think you said the same thing about Michael Jackson's memorial service.


Thank you vets. You've helped make it possible for dickheads in the peanut gallery, like me, to continue doing what we do. I genuinely appreciate almost all of you.

...it's weird to say that so excitedly. Tone it down, I should.

I see what you are doing, Sir. And I'd appreciate it if you took your socialism back to Russia.

You know, for a jackass, you're pretty sharp, and your memory's half decent too! But, while MJ's death brought one kind of emotional pain from loss, seeing how many lives lost for our right to freedom brought it to a whole new level...Something that your peanut gallery probably doesn't comprehend.

arlington cemetery is one of the most amazing places in this country. we stop by there every time we are back east visiting relatives in virginia. the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldiers is a beautiful, solemn event to witness.

we were there about 5 months after 9/11 occurred and the plane that hit the pentagon must have gone right over the cemetary. i have always wondered what the stoic guards did in that moment the plane went over them.

Arlington was Robert E. Lee's house and grounds. During the Civil War an administrator for the Union lost a son and decided to put the cemetery there as a big f**k you to Bobby Lee. It's a beautiful location and I don't think Lee minded at all.
