Thanks to all the veterans out there who risked their lives so we all can continue to enjoy our constitutional rights. I celebrated the day by exercising some of mine at Cabela’s in Hamburg, PA, and then again by loading five fresh 55gr .223 Remington cartridges by hand. The Bench of Evil is now operational. Bitter gets to stay an extra day tomorrow due to the holiday, so Happy Veterans Day everyone!
UPDATE: In the comments:
Apparently there is one living veteran of the American Expeditionary Force, Mr. Fred Buckles, of Charles Town, WV.
I think he ought to receive a full state funeral when he dies, as the representative of the two million Americans who were part of the AEF and as a final thank-you to those men.
If you agree, then I ask that you blog about the idea and also contact your congresscritters.
I agree that would be fitting.
