Thank you for serving, whether it be in peacetime or war.  There are not enough words to describe the debt the rest of us owe you.  My deepest respect and sincere gratitude goes out to all of you.

Thank you for remembering us.  It is especially welcomed by those of us from the Vietnam era who were not welcomed when we came home.  My thanks goes out to all my brothers with a "Welcome Home".  Let's promise to never forget those who are now serving.  Theirs is a tough war.

Right on Zack!  Allow me to add my personal thanks to all of those veterans who are here in Oshkosh 365, and veterans everywhere.  I hope I speak for all when I say we appreciate your service.

Thanks for the thank you.  It makes a good day even better.  I additionally second Geralds sentiments; sounds like we're coming  from about the same place & time.

Thank you! I feel for the folks coming home  back to the "real world". It is good to see them coming home as a unit walking thru the airport instead of one at a time in the walk ways as we did from Vietnam. The name calling and the one finger waves kind of make you mad. It still happens today!

It's great to see that the EAA Folks remember us. Im in the Army and Fly UAV's (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) i deploy in Feburary and there is nothing else I would rather be doing. Well flying in class B airspace. 



Anyone can fly but it takes a Pilot to land!
