Many thanks!

There are a lot of good deals out there today for Veterans.  Free coffee at Starbucks and lunch at Bob Evans are on my list. 

A local Italian place is offering a spaghetti and meatball dinner so we'll be stopping by there this evening........Cliff

The Italian place was a big hit, wait time was over an hour when I got there.  Mostly Korean and Vietnam Vets.

Dad would have loved it, he passed in 2015 but served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam retiring in 1972.......Cliff

Dad actually started out in the Merchant Marine at the start of the war, on supply ships.  He seldom talked about any war stuff, but did mention that a supply ship he was on early in the war sank and when it listed over he slid off the deck and over the rail, but a hand reached down and pulled him to safety.  He never said who it was but we were sure thankful for it......

I've always supported the vets here in wyoming . the money goes directly to the ones in the community
im not a vet  missed the draft for vietnam and to dam old for the gulf war.but i treasure what they've
done and i have a lot of friends . and they always come to me for donations. i have to say the best supporters in our community are the bikers .the crazy buzzards no pun intended will ride there bikes
when its well below freezing .thats a lot of support . they got a deal going on sat night so i bought 5 tickets even tho i may not be able to go.
thanks again for your service.
