    You are worthy, and so are all the guys and girls who gave so much for our country.

    Made me cry. GT imbues these vets with character, ethics, and dignity. Not all wars are just, but honor the warriors and their support system.

    Yeah. I just moved out of the Big City to the hilltowns to the west of my state, where they actually appreciate veterans. It really burned me to see veterans events on Memorial Day where the vets and their families outnumbered civilians by a lot.

    His war survival plus his marriage to good-girl Boopsie and their gifted child Sam have changed BD from an unworthy smartoff who thinks he’s worthy, to a worthy dude who worries about being worthy. And Toggle has the keen psychological insight to see it. Trudeau’s genius put those two together. But between the two, Toggle’s smarter than BD, who’s a good man, but it takes him awhile to catch on to things that Toggle can see immediately.

    We can’t even begin to repay the debt we owe to these men and women.
    They give their lives, their limbs, their peace of mind – and many people can’t even give them two minutes of silent respect.

    To Toggle and Alex! My own spouse has “put up” with much in 43 years of my being in the same situation as he and BD. May ALL veterans find the love, devotion, and patience of such loving women, to keep us sane, and alive.

    veteran’s day. if you know a vet, buy them a drink. they are true 1%. and, congress should do more to help them out.

    Its amazing how obvious leftie Trudeau has made BD, who started out as a caricatured right-wing lughead, his most favorable character.

    And to those of us in the Uk. Without American allies, where would we have been? We remember our American friends.

    My legs ache in winter, I can’t run as much, or as far as I used to. I hate loud noises or being cooped up at night. Don’t like shopping with the wife in crowded city lanes any more. But at least I;m here to complain ’bout it. Know too many houses with empty chairs at Christmas……….

    Times have changed from the day when veterans marched in their thousands to Washington asking for a little help in hard times, and were met with teargas and shotguns, and songs like this were written:

    I fought in the war for my country,
    I went out to bleed and to die,
    I thought that my country would help me,
    And this was my country’s reply:
    Soup, soup,
    Soup, soup,
    they gave me a bowl of soup!


    Sung to the tune of “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean.”


    Of course that was 80 years ago, when Herbert Hoover was in the White House.
