I Want to Thank Our Veterans

God Bless Those Who Served and Are Serving 7,193 People

    Thankyou for all of your sacrifices.

    It's probably not very easy to do what you do and cope with all of the things you cope with. I really would like to take the time to thank each and EVERY one of you. For making my life, and every one else's a better one. A free one.

    I want to say a huge thanks to all the British,

    Commonwealth and Allied veterans past and present. I know a lot of people here are American and mainly most of the thanks here go to there so I thought it would be nice to give people like my Grandad a shout out. A D-Day veteran who gave his best days to ensure freedom for...

    Yes, as another American,

    I want to thank our veterans. Even though I have not served in the armed forces, I still want to thank our men and women who don a military uniform. Their efforts to keep America free is a wonderful blessing to have. For those in harms way, I wish you all the best and a safe...

    Honestly my father just died of cancer

    and he fought in the war, people are very rude about it, but yet he fought for you to be free? People need to start thanking them, because if it wasn't for our veterans we might not be a free country!

    I always thank military staff

    for their contributions to making my world a safer place. Always in the form of a simple "Thank you for your service." I'm not trying to make a big deal out of it because I know you hate that. I know you cringe when you're on your way to drill and you're in uniform but need to...

    I lived in DC for a short period

    and got to see the opening of the WWII Memorial. All week they had tributes on the mall lawn. It was then that I felt for what was probably the first time a weight of gratitude for what those guys endured. I had the opportunity to spend a lot of time talking with some of our...

    Thank you to all the US veterans,

    you people are the best. Thank you for providing me with my freedom. You are definitely under appreciated and under paid. May God always watch over you and your families. God bless you all.

    Thanks Gramps. You're the toughest

    yet gentlest guy I know. Prideful, yet hilarious. The only reason we call you veteran is because Nice Badass M-F'er isn't an official title.
