    #4 I want to take in this picture as individual human beings, who collectively put their lives on the line as a part of their professional code. We talk about war as politics but war is also business. We will salute them out and salute them in - and we don't want them to die or be injured for life - that is our humanity speaking, but put aside the emotion because the body language in this picture tells a many different stories, which is basically theory of mind. There much I learn from simply looking at this picture, for it prompts me to recognize how many may not be coming back https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_military_casualties_in_the_War_in_Afghanistan and then there is this http://www.bbc.com/news/world-south-asia-11371138 which says "Countries with troops still in Afghanistan include the US, Georgia, Germany, Turkey, Romania, Italy, the UK and Australia." Which means what? I like to think globally, at a time when nations are beginning to think nationally.

    #2 Exactly Manjit. Working on a military installation during the Gulf Ware and watching these boys (and no matter how many weapons they carried I could only see young, barely shaving, faces) depart for a war zone. I knew them by name, I had met their families at the holidays, the many girlfriends/boyfriends that passed through their lives, the ones they married and who later had children. They weren't the uniforms with weapons, they were the sons and daughters of parents who loved them, who feared for them.
    I know what's waiting when they finally land in the US, family with happy tears but full of fears because we will soon have an erratic war monger in the white house. Any that can get out, will get out, before...

    I want to take a perspective of the 17 visible rows in the center of this shot, which provides a view of 85 lives.

    The core profession of these 85 people is as a soldier. Our affinity with them depends on what our own affinity is.

    This picture becomes important from this perspective because the affinity of each soldier is his. One can only wonder the specialized role they might be playing or whether it is in direct action.

    Whatever their assignment is their faces are not regimented in this picture, they are not an anecdote that sums up our beliefs, but individual lives, yet they cannot go on social networks to discuss that which could get their brothers-in-arm killed. Yet there is use of networks that connect them to their loved one's.

    Finally, it is hard for me to spot which of these soldiers are females they know the military forces deploy female soldiers. In this regard I see the human being in those seats before I see their profession.

    Broadly speaking, the global helicopter market is currently facing a two - pronged assault. The military helicopter segment has been impacted significantly by continued defense budgetary pressures across most traditional markets, and a recent slide in global crude oil prices has impacted the demand for new civil helicopters as well as the level of activity for existing fleets engaged in the offshore oil & gas exploration sector. This situation has impacted industry OEMs significantly, many of which had been working towards strengthening the civil helicopter segment to partially offset the impact of budgetary cuts on the military segment. However, the medium - to long - term view of the market is promising given the presence of strong fundamentals and persistent, sustainable growth drivers.

    The market for military helicopters in particular is set to cross a technological threshold in the form of next - generation compound helicopters and tilt rotorcraft. Emergence of these technologies, expected to be set into motion and completed within the next decade, are likely to result in a significant expansion of the operational spectrum, force capabilities and performance. Aircraft arising from these new programmes may well see their conventional roles redefined, and thereby enhance the overall effectiveness of modern military operations. There are a number of strong and stable growth drivers for military helicopters globally, despite the continued challenges of funding and approval.

    Brandon, Absolutely. The whole thing wreaked of insincere business-as-usual with the help of marketing and a lawyer. I hope Mr. Walker felt okay with the apology but this letter 'sucks rotten eggs'. Having sat in as minutes taker in corporate meetings I can probably hear the conversation;
    It was just a meal, for christ's sake, what's the big deal, okay, how are we going to handle this? So-and-so, write a letter by so-and-so time and we'll meet again to review. Damn that manager for not handling this better; didn't we teach them how to confront bad customers? Do we need to hold another round of training sessions on how to properly handle disgruntled guests. Now, on to other subjects; what were the losses for the veteran give-away? How can we decrease the free meals, while still capitalizing on the 'community good-will' campaign?
    No where are they referred to as human-beings, they are 'guests', in other words, walking stiffs with wallets.

    19/11/2016 #4 Harvey Lloyd
    Has it really gotten so complicated that when we make a mistake we can't just apologize? The letter looked like one written for the state of the union address. The irony truly is that even though the letter stated the values, clearly these values were not present in this situation. Restating them didn't make it better but rather reinforced the leadership's inability to perform at the customer level.

    Maybe the leadership needs to apply to undercover boss?

    "Veteran" Status may not mean what you think it means. I did 15 years in the Reserves, all of my 9 deployments were 179 days, because at 180 days they have to issue benefits and a DD-214, anything below that was considered "ActiveDuty for Training" - neither the military nor an extremely large Retail conglomerate out of Arkansas consider me a 'Vet'. The one DD-214 that I could have "eaned" was from time in a country that we were never officially deployed to and never declared as one of our Forward Operations in the ever global expanding Shit Show of Whack-a-mole 'Anti-Terrorism' ventures.

    I appreciate getting news I would not have otherwise known about. It is news and as such is interesting and on this case appalling? But it is in the past. The calendar must certainly be decided ahead of time and not the day before. The time to do something about this is before it becomes a travesty. I am pollinating the 'gripe' hive with this.
    This is just one more example of poor planning. Just like all of the rioters that are saying "not my president," and boo-hoo didn't vote because Bernie wasn't on the ticket. Shame on our school systems for not better teaching our students about VOTING, and for that matter, about a whole bunch of other stuff every young adult must know about.
    As far as the Electorial College goes, I don't know about you, but I don't want a couple of states with humongous populations picking s a President for me. The common vote would not fairly represent America. That's is not to say that I am for or against the President. I am for the USA and so I will back up any President that operates within the law of the land OR I will become a complete anarchist and attempt to overythrow that person in the event of crimes against humanity being conducted by same!

    This isn't new. Last year I was attending a convention. One of the speakers asked any veterans in the audience to stand. She told those that served in WWII and Korea and the most recent conflicts to sit back down. She asked that only the Vietnam Era vets stay on their feet. She thanked us for our service. And then she told the audience why.

    We were the ones that came home and were spit on, mocked and told we were scum. She was right to explain how we were the vilified, forgotten vets. The audience, many of them too young to remember those sad times, applauded the small group of us still standing. Never before had someone thanked me. It is the only time I've ever had a knot like that in my throat. I will not forget.

    Perhaps too few of our population serve these days. When all students are supposed to be headed to college and there is no draft why should we be surprised? We have a volunteer army, etc. but I'll bet if a major conflict broke out the draftees would outnumber the volunteers by hundreds to one.

    If schools are not in session for Martin Luther King Day then they should not be in session on Veterans Day. It makes no sense to say that one recognition of sacrifice is greater than the massive level of sacrifice of people who give their lives for their country.

    There is one note that I do find disturbing, which was when I visited Arlington Cemetery in Washington DC. I walked there so I could do two things. First honour the grave of Robert Kennedy because when I was 7 years old in 1968, this was the first traumatic event I had witnessed as a child, I knew something terrible had happened that was flashing on a small black and white television screen, but could not make sense of what it is watching that news had upon me.

    The other was to pay respects at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers. What I found disturbing was the level of tourism that allowed tourists to take snapshots as if it was just another stop on the Washington travel tour - there was even a man who asked him family to move a little so all the "graves were in a straight line". If that showed a lack of deferential spirit, the sight of tourists buses that demonstrated very little in the way of solemnity was just as disturbing for me.

    When I got to Robert Kennedy's grave, I was surprised to find the most humbling of a tiny wooden cross. While Kennedy was not a veteran he held interesting views on the Vietnam War http://alphahistory.com/vietnamwar/robert-f-kennedy-war-cannot-be-won-1968/ The post-war records of any war remind me of Sun Tzu's Art of War that the smartest strategy is to avoid war. The responsibility of a politician is to protect veterans in war and peace - otherwise they should send their own children first.

    If you leave the military and don't have good family and/or community ties, life gets hard. The VA has to deal with millions of vets and you're just a number to them. The sooner people figure that out the better off they are. Nothing new to find out about this post

    Loved this David! As a veteran myself, I really appreciated this! My oldest, Sarah, serves here in Louisiana as a JAG captain in the Army National Guard and has been deployed to Haiti and also here after the big flood this year for disaster relief work. You're right--- veterans bring so much to the table at work and in the community in their civilian lives. I see it all the time.

    I must tell you though, I think schools can remain open on this holiday, but I think there should be a required assembly or other celebration so children and teens understand early on as part of their learning veterans' contributions to our country.

    One more thing--- you mention Montgomery and Fairfax Counties and their PC thing. When Sarah chose to join ROTC in college after 9/11, the mother of her best friend in Potomac said she did not understand why Sarah made that choice because she had options, saying, "It's not like she's a farmer's son or something..." I remember thinking that comment was so typical of the people I knew there.

    #9 Thanks good point, @Larry Boyer and makes practical sense. Thanks for bring it up, as I'm sure lot's of parents would agree with you. However, the least public schools can do if they remain open is to hold a Veterans Day observance and educate more young people about the meaning of the holiday and the morals/values it represents.
    While some schools might do this, others don't. This is because of PC run amok, as noted. For example, I've been told by teachers that some ultra liberal bureaucrats are concerned this would send the wrong message by allegedly supporting the concept of war and a military action. That's the most pathetic thing I've ever heard and borders on socialist indoctrination IMHO. Yet it's really happening in some schools. It makes me sick. What about you?

    I remember having Veterans Day off, many others as well. I would suggest that rather than political correctness there is something else (or perhaps many things) afoot. Veteran's day used to be a bigger holiday for many employers. Like Sunday's and other holidays it too has been heaped into another work day and another day for sales and shopping. Veteran's Day used to be a holiday. If parents are forced to work on November 11th, is it any surprise then that schools should be open? Schools actually have less freedom in their schedules as well. Fairfax County already had 2 days off this week. With state imposed dates for when school is to begin, when standardized tests are to occur, lengths of grading periods, school leaders really don't have much flexibility.

    #3David, in honor of your father's faithful service to a proud and grateful nation, I would like to say, "Climb to Glory!"

    By the way, that is the motto of the 10th Mountain Division. Dates back to service in WWII in the Italian campaign and their train up for war in the Colorado mountain ranges.

    Today, if you were to travel to Fort Drum, NY (home of the 10th Mountain Division) you will often see and hear Soldiers saluting their officers saying, "Climb to Glory Sir!" To which officers quickly return the salute and reply with, "To the Top!"

    10th Mountain Division Combat Veteran

    Last shared insight. The WWII 10th Mountain Division veterans came back from that war and returned to their beloved Colorado ski ranges and established the current ski resorts that dot their picturesque ridge lines e.g., Aspen, Vail and so on. In fact, in honor of their contributions to Colorado's ski industry the state offers vehicle license plates with the 10th Mountain logo and the words, "Ski Troops!"

    Thank you, Randy, for an excellent read on Veterans Day. I admire and salute your friend, as well as all U.S. veterans today and every day. My late father served in the Army, 10th Mountain Division as a 1st Lt. in the special explosives unit. The skills and experience he learned in the military were instrumental in shaping his career in the private sector as president and CEO of a textile manufacturing corporation in NYC. He was always so proud of his military experience and serving out great nation. I'll always remember the Taps salute and American flag placed over his coffin at the funeral. That flag is encased today in my home next to a photo of him as a young officer.
    God Bless America and all who served -- not only today, but every day of the year.
