Veteran's Day Nov 11

I would like to take a moment to thank all of the veterans here on WOOD On Line.  For the rest of us, please take the second to thank a veteran in person.


Who is a veteran?


"A veteran is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank
check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of up to
and including their life." (Author unknown)

Forget the primal scream, just ROAR!!!

Thanks Dave, I think about those who serve everyday.  We are so lucky to have an all volunteer military group that protect us every day.


I know I wouldn't take anything for the time I spent " writing the check"


Thanks for posting

Re: Veteran's Day Nov 11

Good Morning Dave,

I also thank you for your thoughtful thank you for those of us who were able to come home and today in Pickerington, Ohio the traveling wall of all of those who didn't get to come back home is set up for all to see and is a replica of the national one fixed permanently in Washington DC.


I was at the air port to pick up a relative and while I was waiting someone started to clap their hands and before you knew it everyone was doing the same and the reason was that a group of service men and women had disembarked from the plane they were on and what better thanks could we give than an applause of gratitude to them who serve?

Remember to keep your hands no closer to a spinning blade or bit than 6" for safety sake.
