    Gentleman,

    I am kind of new to this forum and am continually becoming more familiar with it and it's members.

    I am noticing how many Military and Police personnel, both active and retired, are members here at GlockForum.com.

    To each and every one of you, whether you've been here for a while or just now joining in on the forum, I want to thank you ALL for your services and personal sacrifices to God, Country and mAn. By your conscious and deliberate choice to live a life as peacemakers & defenders of freedom & justice, in your actions that place/places yourselves in harms way for the benefit of others, at a high personal cost to you, I say, "Thank you for a job well done". Without guys and gals like you, none of us would be experiencing the lives we have here in these United States of America & around the globe.

    I know this isn't much. But it's about all I can do besides take you to lunch or dinner as I bump into/meet you all.

    From the bottom of my heart, my sincerest "Thanks to you All!"

    As prior USMC, and current police officer, I thank you for your support. It is really encouraging to hear such kind words, when 90% of the time all we hear and see is negative about law enforcement,

    I did not sign up for the military, and didn't accept a job as a police officer to get praise, I did it to make a difference as much as I can. It is really nice when I run across someone do appreciating as yourself, it lets me know there are people that see the good in us, and appreciate the hard work we do day in and day out.

    Again thank you for your kind words !!

    Sir... You are very welcome. It is the very least I can do to recognize personal sacrifice that is so very obvious. My God... Words cannot express my appreciation.

    If there is EVER anything I can do for you... ANY of you, PLEASE let me know. Until then, I'll hope I have an opportunity to take you & yours to dinner.

  9. I'm a career Civil Servant. Tried to serve the public in the way I could. But the real heroes are those who serve and protect us, and the liberties and freedoms that allow us to do great things in this Country. God Bless you all, and God Bless these United States of America!!!!

    Well said :). I'm a vet that is proud of being able to do defense work that supports and protects those that are protecting our interests. I'm thankful for all others that have served, are serving. I also appreciate those others that work behind the scenes to support them, and those who protect citizens at home. ( Law enforcement, Fire fighters, Paramedics )

    And if I may, thank you also to those who work for the protection of our country and our way of life, against those who would dedicate themselves to destroying both...

    To those men and women who wear no uniform but have sworn an oath, who put themselves in harms way for our sakes, who work from the shadows, and have no names and no faces, but live and die to protect us all from harm

    To them, too, a Thank You too long unsaid.

    Matt, I'd like to say thank you for being the true man that you are. You best believe if I ever run across you, I will be sure to talk to you until I am hungry. I will also do my best to lure you near a restaurant that serves lobster. :D
