Veterans Day

"We aren't no thin red 'eroes, nor we aren't no blackguards too,
But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
An' if sometimes our conduck isn't all your fancy paints,
Why, single men in barricks don't grow into plaster saints;"

To all who have served, to all who are currently serving, to all who will serve, this fat old retired squid thanks you from the bottom of his heart.

Well done, Shipmates.

Thank you for your service as well. My sincere appreciation to all, especially to those who paid the ultimate price. May we as a nation continue to remember and appreciate our brothers and sisters in arms every day of the year.
