    for being a marine in the late 60's.

    i know not many were thanking you for it then, definitely not me.

    now with the benefit of years i see more what was being risked (life) and am humbled.

    this realization settled on me about 10 years ago and since have tried to thank the vets i meet, particularly those of the vietnam era.

    i do thank you.

    Ah, now I understand. I can't really accept your thanks, however, because I received a medical/honorable discharge before ever being shipped overseas. I had volunteered at the height of that whole mess, so I always figured I did my part and being discharged was their call.

    The real heroes are the guys who did make it over there. Especially those who didn't come back.

      for willingness and risk, the thanks are the same.

        These may be common knowledge to everyone but me, but I was shocked twice in two days by two things I learned:

        1) There's an acknowledged standard called the 10,000 hour rule. This basically says you have to practice hard for a minimum of 10,000 hours to master a sport, skill, or subject....

        Well, with all this talk of RP get-togethers (hey, at least I learned about hyphenation!! ), I thought I'd drop a note to see who is in THIS area.
