    Words can't truly express the gratitude, and thankfulness every American should feel for all the men and women who have, do, and will serve our country.

    Thank you, all.

    Amen. I celebrated the 236th Marine Corps birthday last night with a great group of old jarheads. Semper Fi.

    This day is bittersweet for me. I am so very proud of those who served, but I am saddened that my own self-centeredness caused me not to serve this great nation. I should have and I regret that!

    I love this country and have a profound respect for those who did serve! Thank you all!

    Lots of ways to serve your country Brian...the military is just one of them. Look forward, not back...we all have regrets but I believe that's wasted energy.

    It's not a regret that drives me or stunts any personal growth John, it's just about the only thing in my life I wish I could have changed. Only problem with that is it probably would have meant me never meeting Ms. Piggy and she is 2nd best thing to ever happen to me!

    And I do serve John, in many ways. I just believe it is the responsibility of every able bodied male citizen to serve in the U.S. military.

    Well, look at this way, my friend.

    Now that you're married, it is in your best interests to follow orders.

    Thanks to all those who have served! I toyed with the idea of going to nuclear-sub school, which would have put me on a sub for X years as an officer, but decided against it. I'm pretty happy with the way my life has turned out, so I do not regret my decision, but it would have been a pretty cool back story!
