Thank you Chrissie

Thanks Chrissie. So much of our sacrifice has been overlooked and belittled. We came back as young men to a country that harassed us for doing our duty. It makes us appreciate even more the few that stood by us like you. Thanks again for your love and belief in us.

As Memorial Day comes, I had to look at your Vietnam section again. Thanks for a fantastic site!

I wish I had had an opportunity to see one of your Christmas shows.

And thanks for posting one of my photos on your site. I am sincerely flattered.

Thanks Chrissie great tribute.

Damn I hate the Days like this, I don't know what to say. When I left we were winning, as has been said before. What the hell happened. What has happened to our country. Since 1967, it seems to have gotten worse. Now, I hope is the peak (?) A President of the United States is cavorting around the world apologising for the United States. I can't understand for the life of me what we have done wrong and what we need to apologize for.

Now we are celebrating another Memorial Day, dedicated to the Soldiers who have gone before us and us and the ones still serving. But the men we dedicate this day to, He is apologising for.

Sorry I am confused.

Thank you my wonderful brothers and sisters for your unflagging support of veterans and our troops.

Thank you Chrissie for the great tribute. Much love and appreciation.

Is Hussein apologizing for his personal behavior or the collective behavior of Congress and his presidency? Maybe he only respects his Communist, Fascist and Islamist brothers, it shows!

I don't feel apologetic for fighting the cold war or the hot ones!!!

Go ahead and apologize for your own lack of manhood and patriotism Barry but don't do it for me, it's insulting!!!

Congress has failed to do it's job for over 65 years. Deferring their Constitutional duties to the President for prosecuting wars but withholding any declaration of war. Then with Congress pulling their support once heavily engaged.
Gotta protect their sorry malfeasant asses every 4 years, by making it look like the nation failed and we the troops get the blame for their failures.

This has left our troops maligned by fellow "americans?" for the failures of the Congress and the presidency. Dishonored for serving in failed wars where the troops won all the battles before Congress pulled out and for those souls lost as MIA or POW abandoned by our countrymen.

Congress, Obama, despicable!!!

I thank all of you who took a moment to comment and especially thank those that served. Many of them gave their lives so that we may be free and those that came home were often treated with contempt by those whom they gave the right to, to be a*%holes. God bless our troops, all of them and God Damn those that people don't.
