Definition of a Veteran

In Honor of SSg Kristopher Rodgers - a native of Howe, Indiana, stationed out of Fort Hood and now a fallen soldier in Afghanistan, here is the best definition of a Veteran that I have ever seen.,

A Veteran - Someone who, whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - at one point in their life, wrote a check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life."

A friend of mine signs each of his email with that statement. Tis true!

And we,as proud Americans honor those people from whom the government has collected, even a partial payment of time in grade.

Thanks to all who serve! You are truly Great Americans.
