<P>Thank you for posting the link, Maldian.  I think that it is important that, even if we do not support the current administration, we alway remember to support and pay tribute to those who are willing to go into harm's way for their country.  I would also like to pay tribute to the families who send husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters off to places of conflict.  I have been the person at home, and realize that it is not an easy thing, either.</P> <P> </P>

<DIV>Its not just an American thing, almost all Western (and prolly some Eastern as well) countrys designate Nov 11th to honour their countrys fallen soldiers.<BR>The reason is it was on this date and time that the Guns stopped firing at the end of the first world war.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>
