Thank you, all trans veterans and ALL veterans!
Thank you for your current and past military service to our country.

We remember you, we are grateful for you, and that is not just on a few days a year.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 


Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Amen! Thank you to those of you who served to protect us all. It is a hard job, and sort of out-of-sight-out-of-mind for many people. Thank you!

I'm the former, and I also thank the latter.  :)

I thank you, Chrissy, for thinking about us on this day.

I'm going to hijack this for a moment. I'm currently living in Biggleswade, England. Yesterday we went downtown to the War Monument for the Armistice Day Centenary observance. There was a huge turnout, as there was across the entire UK.

The monument carries the names of the 172 local residents who lost their lives in WWI. Every name was read during the observance.

Today I did some homework, the closest census I could find was 1911, a few years before the war broke out. There were 5,375 residents here then. 172 laid down their lives in that conflict, an amazingly large percentage.

"We will never forget"

Peace to you all. Ironically, peace is what every warrior fights for.

There is no need to wait for a special day to give thank you's to all Trans veterans and ALL veterans.  You are special!

Thank you for your service!  Weather you are on active duty, a reservist, a National Guard member, retired, or otherwise have served but have left the services, you are all veterans and you are all appreciated! 

Hugs,   :)  :)

I find it sad that this thread gets so few posts, but the "Check out my A$$" thread started at the same time got so many.  :-\ :(

Thank you, Chrissy.

Thank you, Chrissy.  :)

We attended the Remembrance Day observance in downtown Biggleswade on Sunday morning. The people here in the UK really appreciate those who have served and given all for their country. There was a very good turnout for the parade and ceremony at the War Memorial. Just about everyone wears a poppy this time of year.
