    I pulled 8 hours but it is not government work. but it looks like they would recognize the vets for what they sacrificed for their country and at least give them that day off with pay. I would gladly work twice as hard for what you all have done for me. FREEDOM!

    i work in a small company with 3 other guys plus the owner... three of us are vets - the owner is not...

    Guess who took Veteran's Day off while the rest of us worked?

    That's the worst thing of it all - the majority of our customers were closed, so we didn't have any work to do... just sat around twiddling our thumbs all day, but couldn't leave - just in case. :angry:

    Have had to work them all.
    To me it is more about remembering those who went before me and did not return home. As well as those currently serving and protecting my freedoms.
