Very good...I hope to share that with many others. We will never forget! Thank you and your brothers in arms, past and present, for your service.

As a military veteran in the Las Vegas area I understand the rigors of transitioning to a job in civilian life…the jobs that pay now are less based on degrees but short IT certificates that match what the job needs….and getting that training in abundance can be very costly, but there is help GO TO you get the exact same training you would have gotten in the military


Thanks for this, MP. Unfortunately, the President has already forgotten. To him, it's only a "National Day of Service".


Thank you and all service personnel all over the globe, past, present and future.

Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never give in.
-Winston Churchill
My parents were very young when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. My dad was 21, my mother was 14. It was a memory neither ever lost, although age and time took many others.
On September 11, 2001, my mother had to call an ambulance and send my 81-year-old father to the hospital. He was so upset that America had been attacked that he became hysterical. He was so angry that someone would attack us on our own soil and so afraid that his children and grandchildren would live in a nation under siege.
I am grateful that his generation gave me a safe world to grow up in, and I am grateful that our service men and women will keep it safe for my grandchildren.


Absolutely beautiful post and every word so necessary to be said for all to take to heart. God Bless you and all your brother and sisters that stand in defense of this nation and all those that have gone before. Prayers out for our America as we remember the attack on her by those that hate her and still want to destroy her. Prayers out for all those that lost loved ones and friends on that day. Thank you again for your courage Major, you are much appreciated out here in flyover country!

Thank you Maj. Pain. And I hope that I'm doing my share here on the home front.
At 0530 MST I will break the seal on a fifth of Jack. I will pour a tumbler of smooth brown liquid. I will toast those who died in the WTC 9 years ago. I will toast those who rushed in to save the victims of that attack, some who also lost their live and all who rushed in without regard for their own safety. I will toast those men and women who quickly stepped up to swear to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and those who have followed since that fateful day. I will toast those who have given some and toast those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country and the principles and standards lain down by our Founding Fathers.
May God guide our leaders and may we be successful against the enemies of our country.
God Bless you Maj. Pain.

So nice blog! But I have a suggestion that you can add some humorous language up to your article. Maybe you can write more better.


I'll always appreciate our military families


This old combat vet of Viet Nam and his family will never forgive or forget 9/11/ 01. Thank you for your service and thank all in harms way.
