Today is December 7th. This is the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. And America is still dealing with the effects of the radical Islamic attack on Sep.11, 2001.

These thoughts bring me to think of the many who have served our country, in times of peace and in times war. All who served realized when they held their hand up to take the oath that they might be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice for this country. A great many who took the oath did just that.

To all who have served, who are serving now, or have loved ones who did, thank you and may God bless you.

Would you care to let us know who you are and when and where you served? (Please don't post any personal information.) I'll start off:

U.S. Army Security Agency 1970-73, Sp.5 - Turkey

It's because of those that came before us and stand beside us, that we do what we do. You're hard pressed to find many who serve(d) that don't take a personal moment in remembrance on days like today.

Thank you for your service Puddlethumper.

I went to Pusan, Korea on my last deployment. Pretty cool place, at least to visit. Not sure how living there would be. The sushi was awesome there, though, that's for sure. It was funny because when we went there North Korea accused the US of bringing nuclear weapons near North Korea, but fast attacks don't carry nukes, they're just nuclear powered.

I find it interesting that so many USN vets are homebrewers. I wonder if we don't share a fondness for nerdy tinkering.

As for me, spent many hours turning left over parts of the earth that I don't miss.
