    An Honor Flight of WW2 vets arrived at Reagan International Airport. The video explains it all.

    Terrific response. Bless them all.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Awesome.

    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    The Boys of Summer

    They’re leaving us swiftly now, dying at the rate of 800 every day, the last of the 16 million men who put on the khaki to march to the sound of the guns. Not much notice of the day was taken this year. President Obama forgot to say anything about their heroics and sacrifice. Maybe he was too busy, flying off to Hollywood to crack suggestive smutty jokes about Michelle and Ellen DeGeneres, and collecting campaign cash from a party for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered Leadership Council. Even Michelle, who has lately been talking a lot about helping military families, was busy raising money in New York City and Philadelphia.

    Wow, we do remember!

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    He misjudges our wonderful country. Sad man, so mired in the Acorn stuff and the dirty Chicago politics that he doesn't appreciate the spirit of our people.

    We see many of the brave retired military here in Florida. I love to listen when they're in a doctor's waiting room, exchanging stories or at the physical therapy place. Every time I respect them even more, if that's possible. I respect those brave men of honor.
