    My grandfathers served, my dad served, several uncles and cousins served, my brother and I served. None died in the service but I feel the pain of the families whose loved ones did die in the service of our country. The photo sweetly posted is heartbreaking, there is nothing more to be said.

    Having family that has served and still serving and lost family due their time spent in the service I want to say their are not many more that are more thankful for our soldiers and what they do for us and our freedom.

    I served. Two tours in the Middle East. My heart goes out to and my mind will be with those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
    @Candela thanks for taking the time to post this thread.

    I don't often talk about my service, as for 20 years, I wasn't allowed to. Was involved in something with top secret technologies. I can talk about it now, but just used to not talking about it.

    Thanks to all who have served.

    No. It was high level (at the time) communications security. NATO Atomic Clearance Level.
