What did you do on this Veteran's Day?


 While I had to work today, I had the privilege of having three Veterans among my patients.

One was a WW2 SeeBee who participated in the island hopping campaigns in the SW Pacific.

Another was also a WW2 Engineer stationed on Papau, New Guinea.

My third was a ROK soldier from the Korean War.

I also got to meet their "pals and cohorts" who came to visit them [sign in to see URL] stretching from WW2 all the way up to OIF/OEF.

In my mind - after hearing their stories from far off lands - I wish I could have done more than tell them "Thank you for your service to the nation"...it just didn't seem to be enough in my mind.

I undestand. Though I have no answer. My father who was a Korea Marine died in the VA hospital in Columbia, MO not that long ago.

GAWD... I do NOT like this forum format. It's light years BEHIND the old MSN forums.

With all respect due to Curtis and Case... tis sucks.
