    Just wanted to take a moment from the more pressing issues of the day in the Hangout to express appreciation to all of the veterans who have served our country so that we may enjoy our freedoms. I also wanted to send out my thoughts and prayers to those families who have suffered the ultimate sacrifice. I wish I had had the opportunity to meet my Uncle to thank him in person.

    Freedom is never free.

    Nice fact pgabs.

    Here's a pretty good video of returning soldiers surprising their children. I like the first one the best.
