Back at ya Ed.

I am a peacetime Vet but I saw this on a Veterans day video. To all our brothers and sisters in arms ooohraa and God bless and keep ya safe. To all those who give us "Thank you"'s...

In the name of God and Country I learned to defy gravity. To honor my family I lived in the belly of a beast. I fixed the hearts of iron monsters. I became a worm in the mud, for dignity, for honor, for righteousneess’ sake, for God and Country.

I fought for you, for you, you and you. I fought for you.

And I’d do it again.

Always remember All gave some and some gave all.
From this Veteran and all of my sisters and brothers in arms, both living and dead.
Your Welcome…
