Note left on my Mustang today..

Went to the dentist today, found this note under my wiper. Way cool, never had this happen before. The reference about thanking me for my service is because I have veteran plates on my Mustang (Army '72-'75).

That`s cool. I get more thanks for your service nowadays wearing my USN veteran hat, than I ever did when I was in. Back then, if you were in uniform, you had the "young folk" cursing you out & calling you names, like assassin & baby killer.

when I saw the post subject line I was afraid it was going to be something different . . .

My father served in the Tet Offensive in Vietnam., as did my next door neighbor. I wasn't around to see how badly people treated you guys when you got home, but I've heard plenty of stories.

For all of you that served, in any era, any capacity - thanks for safeguarding me, and serving your country. I'm proud of you.

I had 4 uncles (my Mom's brothers) deployed during WWII. One in the South Pacific, 2 in Europe and one in the states. My dad was in the Air force during the Korean War. I had an accident when I was 13 that cost me my left kidney. I talked to a Marine Recruiter in 1973 and could not pass the physical. I always felt I fell a little short of being a true patriot. I have the utmost respect for all those that have served and are serving.

USAF 1964-1968. I have never been ashamed of my military service and indeed it's quite the opposite, I think military service is very honorable thing. I am a bit embarrassed however when people thank me for having served. Let me explain and if what I say is too controversial for this board I will quite understand if the moderators wish to remove it. My generation [ I was born in 1944 ] unlike today's generation never really had much of a choice regarding military service. There was a military draft in the '60's [ no lottery ] and you either enlisted or you were drafted unless you had either legitimate medical reasons or the right connections to claim a disability. You could also avoid military service because of family obligations or get a college deferment. Lastly you could have it both ways. You could try to get into the National Guard or the Reserves. At that time unlike today, the Guard and Reserves were seldom called to active duty. This allowed people who were either lucky or had the " right connections" to avoid the stigma of being a draft dodger while still not having to serve much more than a few months of stateside training. There have been plenty of politicians of both parties and across a broad spectrum of ideologies as well as lesser known people whose families had the means to take advantage of these methods of avoiding active duty military service. Basically I didn't really have much of a choice. Today's young men and women do have a choice and so I think they are far more deserving of thanks than I or others of my generation are. That said, some people in my generation did enlist out of a real sense of duty and not simply because they knew they would be drafted if they didn't. In any case anyone who has or is serving in the military has made a personal sacrifice in doing so.

I was born in 1946,and had no choice either,but all those that served, no matter what branch of service, took the OATH to protect and serve this great nation,and with that OATH there was always a risk,thank's to all that took that OATH and for there service.

My disabled veteran plates gets me that too sometimes.

Sometimes I get cursed out however, because somehow, people who drive Mustangs, or are disabled from Military service arent worthy of parking in an HC spot.

In any case, I retired from the Army, and again from Law Enforcement. Im proud of my family, my country, my community, my service, and my Mustang....
