WWI and WWII Veterans deserve our nations upmost respect, but many people have also forgotten our other veterans. Korean War, Vietnam, Operation Gothic Serpent, Desert Storm etc. etc. Men that fought for their lives, and the lives of their friends around them. In my mind any man that has stepped on to foreign soil in time of war should deserve some kind of worth while pension, and if he happens to live his last day on that foreign soil his family should receive the pension and some kind of remembrance that their son, husband, brother, served his country to the best of his ability and made the ultimate sacrifice for us. With an amount that is actually worth something. Look at the billions we throw away every year on deadbeats that will never amount to anything because they don't care. But then we can't even give a decent supplement to the men that fought to uphold our freedoms or to do what their country asked of them? I would like everyone of you to take a couple seconds when you are at the range and remember who made it possible for you to be enjoying your right to bear arms. To all of the veterans on these forums and everywhere, the youth of this nation has not forgotten you.

That came from a Democrat? They must have built 'em differently back then.

We will never forget our brothers in arms. Fair winds and following seas, to all who perished on this day of infamy.
