a simple thanks

It's hardly enough to just thank the 26 million living Veterans in America:

Thank you for the sacrifices you made,
for the 8 trillion push-ups you did,
for listening to all the ugly things that your DS called you,
for abandoning your personal liberties to protect mine.
Thank you for defending
our nation
our Constitution
our mundane, everyday lives.
Thank you for your service;
I sincerely appreciate my freedom.

(And if anybody happens to know anybody who went to basic camp via ROTC at Fort Knox during the summer of 2001, if they happened to be Warlords, 1st Platoon, 4th Squad, and are still terrorized by Drill Sergent Goodnite, please drop me a line.)
