I suspect there are a few of us on here that are veterans (self included).
I served during Viet Nam but never left the USA. I was a weather forcaster at Plattsburg AFB, NY- which is now closed down. Several years later, I was a civilian working with the USCG in Maryland, USA.
Was my life ever on the line? No!
So when I see all the blogs etc. about Veterans Day, I really don't feel a part of it all. That honor goes to those who put their lives on the line and to them I am grateful.
I also am glad there has been a reverse (here in USA) about how Service Personal should be treated as opposed to those who came back from Viet Nam.
Times change, and in this regard, for the better.
Thank you guys & gals for serving your country- no matter what country you served for.
