I just wanted to say thank you to all our veterans and active duty military here on the VGF and around the world...you guys rock. If not for your dedication, hard work and love for our great country we would be living in a completely different world...we owe you all so much.

Much love and respect,

MJM

As an active duty military member, thanks. Now if I could just get off of work and back playing, things would be good for me :)

No problem. It's a bit difficult staying in during these days, trying times and all.

I'm trying to finish my achievement hunting for Borderlands 2 and beating Master Gee is harder than expected...

A big shout out and thank you to those who have and do serve. If anybody has a bit of free time perhaps you could spend some of it talking to a veteran? It's a humbling experience to hear their stories. Also, if you happen to have a little extra cash then you could possibly consider a donation to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation? They provide scholarships to the children of those in the Marines or Navy Corpsmen, particularly those children whose parents were killed in the line of duty. I feel we have a duty to support those who serve.

Thank you, soldiers of past, present and future. Your actions touch the lives of more people than you know. Your selflessness makes the world a better place.

(I have no involvement with this charity other than my donations.)

I could only imagine.

Borderlands 2 is a great game...a lot of fun. Gearbox did a great job with the sequel...and I can't wait for more DLC so I can get back into the game.

All Veterans have my thanks and I just wish it were possible for all of you to enjoy the day off with us. To those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom you have my deepest thanks and my heart goes out to your families.

Dear Veterans...On Veteran's Day!

"But fame is theirs...and future days
On pillar'd brass shall tell their praise;
Shall tell...when cold neglect is dead~
These for their country fought and bled."

Thanks MJM, Jason, Keji, and Bittersweet. My wife and I are both veterans (she is still active), so I appreciate your sentiments greatly!

Thanks to all the Veterans who risked life and limb to help make not just America but the whole world a safe and better place. May you all return home safe and sound.

Oorah!

Saving Private Ryan is my all time favorite movie. It's an important day for me.
