Thank You

Thank you to our armed forces, past and present that protect and fight for us.

From Wikipedia about today, November 11:

It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)

For you grammar freaks:
The holiday is commonly printed as Veteran's Day or Veterans' Day in calendars and advertisements. While these spellings are grammatically acceptable, the United States government has declared that the attributive (no apostrophe) rather than the possessive case is the official spelling.[2]

Thank you for recognizing veterans such as myself. I don't talk much about my military experience but will share that I helped defend the pubs of Whittlesey England (pop. 5,000) against the invading Scottish hordes. Did you hear of any pubs being taken over? No!! That's because I simple DID MY DUTY. The ales, porters, stouts, bitters, fish and chips and endless games of darts were a jolly good side benefit. Cheers!!
