You may have served in combat or non-combat.

You may have retired, or you may have served for a short time.
You may have been a draftee or a volunteer.
You may have served in the Corps, Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or the Merchant Marines.

BUT YOU SERVED. You did your job HONORABLY and for that I am PROUD to call you Brother.

You may have served during Korea, WWII, the Persian Gulf, Iraq or Afghanistan, but you served, you did not run.

You have a DD-214 with those words "HONORABLY DISCHARGED". Two of the most noble words in the world. And I am proud to know each and everyone of you.

The Bushmaster US NAVY (ret)

Thanks Bushy! You can call me a brother I don't care, gender doesn't matter in this case. I was just watching Das Boot last night, seen it before but it's so well detailed and true to life you really feel for those guys. The early subs must have been hell. At the beginning of the movie they say that 40,000 men were assigned to the German U boats and 30,000 never came back. Anyways those guys had to be quite a tight bunch too, the interior of those subs was 10x150 feet.

Suz

And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,From this day to the ending of the world,But we in it shall be remembered-We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;For he today that sheds his blood with meShall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,This day shall gentle his condition;And gentlemen in England now-a-bedShall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,And hold their manhoods cheap while any speaksThat fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

To all that serve and have served our heartfelt thanks.

Among this crowd of brethren (and suz)I do not mind admitting I have problems dealing with what I have done and seen, this thread couldn't have come at a better time. Today has been one of my darkest in years. I am thankful for the camaraderie I find here from those that have walked in my combat boots and those that have supported every step I have taken in the past 23 years. This is the only place I feel I belong. I raise my glass in salute to the "nut society". Please raise your glass and join me in a toast to the friends we have become. Cheers Cheers Cheers Cheers Cheers Cheers

Amen Bushy. We served in different branches of Defence, and in different sides if the world, but our ideals are the same mate. I am proud to be called brother and I return the compliment in spades.

Wiersay... Salute Cheers Cheers
