When somebody thanks me for my service, I accept for the millions that have served before me.
They are broad shoulders that I stand upon.
To have laced the boots, put on the uniform and have been allowed to stand next to you while in formation is something that fills me with pride.
Thanks for letting me stand next to you.

Bruce Along the Highway to Hell, Kuwait
This is in Kuwait. We called it The Highway to HELL. We cleared mine fields, cleaned up the battlefields, helped put out oil well fires and occasionally traded pot shots across the border with the Iraqi army. Kuwait is where I had the flat tire in the mine field plus a few more memories.
Fell under the category of: This is a dirty job but somebody had to do it.
