VETERANS DAY NEVER FORGET-THANK A VETERAN!

WAL-MART SENIOR GREETER
You just have to appreciate this one.  Young people forget that we old people had a career before we retired......


this picture of Charley did not copy.  It was from an e-mail that was circulating…


Charley, a new retiree-greeter at Wal-Mart, just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, sharp-minded and a real credit to the company and obviously demonstrating their "Older Person Friendly" policies.
   One day the boss called him into the office for a talk.
   "Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job when you finally get here; but your being late so often is quite bothersome."
   "Yes, I know boss, and I am working on it."
   "Well good, you are a team player. That's what I like to hear.  
   “Yes sir, I understand your concern and I’ll try harder.
   Seeming puzzled, the manager went on to comment, It's odd though your coming in late. I know you're retired from the Armed Forces. What did they say to you there if you showed up in the morning so late and so often?"
   The old man looked down at the floor, then smiled.
   He chuckled quietly, then said with a grin, "They usually saluted and said, Good morning, Admiral, can I get your coffee, sir?”


PICTURE OF AN ADMIRAL DID NOT COPY (SORRY)

One of my favorite stories!  I got this story through an e-mail and even if it is not true it seems like it should be!

sorry that the pictures did not copy!

AND MY FAVORITE VETERAN OF COURSE

THANK YOU BOB for your service to your country so that I could be safe.  Thank you for coming home.  I know that so many you fought with did not.  Thank you for being so brave, even though you were a very young  scared 18-19-20 year old boy.

I am PROUD to be your wife!

love forever and always…me

I am proud of my father and my brothers in-law that served our nation and fought for our freedoms. They are true Americans and a great example of freedom. Thank you Dad, Bob, Ron and Ed.
