    Funny, there is no posting site for witn for Veterans day. I think that in the future, they should put a site to blog and dedicate to veterans. So, with that being said US Army Vet thanks for your and your families service to the US. And to my favorite soldier, my dad. He served 27 years in the Airforce as a pilot. He was in 3 wars, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. You may have met him on the way to where you were going. He flew C-47s, 123s and C130s. You know him because he received the Air Medal 7 times for risking his life. You may know him as the guy that picked you up in Vietnam when you were in harms way. He was "that guy" that flew his plane while shots were fired at him as the main target on the plane. He was one of the men from Pope Airforce Base who had more hours in the C130. And when he flew home, he brought back the bodies of the fallen. He was saddened they had fallen and showed them respect as a fellow soldier. See you some day dad, we miss you. Thanks Witn.
