    A veteran — whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve — is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America, for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’ That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.” — Author unknown.

    I wish I could say I wrote it, I did not. But who ever did was a wise person.

    I signed that check Aug 23rd 1978.:wink: Its still open.

    very well said. my check is still open, thank the good lord it hasnt been cashed in yet. but if someone ever comes to collect payment, i will sure make it worth their while. it is going to be an expensive check and i will make sure they earn every penny of it.
