Governor Palin: Happy Veterans Day!; Update: Chuck, Jr’s Message

As always, Governor Palin honors our veterans with this simple but profound thought, via Facebook:

Happy Veterans Day! If you love your freedom, thank a Vet!

UPDATE: Governor Palin’s brother, Chuck, Jr., posted the following Veterans Day message on his website:

Thank you, Veterans!

Never can enough thanks be given for the sacrifices made by servicemen and women and their families. We honor them today and remind ourselves that their commitment and courage is never to be taken for granted or forgotten.

At this very moment, while some of you are preparing for church, getting ready to sit down for some football, or tending to your Sunday chores, there are men and women thousands of miles away putting it all on the line for us.

They’re rubbing the sand out of their eyes, trying to stay alert, scared (but brave), homesick, wondering if you’re thinking about them, and hoping for a letter from home today.

Don’t take them for granted… especially today.

Happy Veteran’s Day to all that serve and sacrifice.

    If she has said that once….she’s said it a thousand times.
    That’s why I’ll support her till I can’t. ?

    Our freedoms exist because the vets have protected us from external enemies. Thanks you veterans!!!

    From the internal enemies of freedom, we must protect ourselves!!!

  • TheresaAK

    Thank you, thank you, thank you….to all the Vets, those who are with us, and those who have joined the Greatest Commander of all.

    Your sacrifice, your honor, your ultimate love for God and mankind…is the reason we voted on Tuesday….no matter the outcome.

    I am however, angry, so angry that those who protect and serve, those votes are more and more, each election cycle, disenfranchised….corruption against those who make the ultimate sacrifice…

    May God deal with those who treat our Military with such contempt…

    God bless all of you….not just today, not just on Memorial Day either, but everyday.

    Did you guys know that this is the first Veteran’s day without a surviving WW1 vet?

        The ’30 with the rise of Hitler’s socialists is as far away from us as the civil war was to the ’30

        Now we (not the 20 somethings who vote with their private parts) regard the ’30 as some time back but this recent history from which lessons should be learned. And those living in the ’30 for same reason had a good memory of all what the civil war entailed.

        But the younger generation, to them the first iraq war is history, some where not even born yet. Vietnam is pretty long ago and the hitler, they don’t even know he was a socialist who competed with that marxist stalin in how much people they could make miserable or kill.

        • GeraldGoff

          was this really necessary on a thread honoring our vets?

          20 somethings did not vote with their private parts.  the 20 somethings voted because they [ and thier current/future children] are the ones being asked to pay for our current excesses.

          • MaMcGriz

            What bullsh*t.

          • HuntingMoose

            Who the heck are you?

            some Obama operative slithering even after the elections?

            I am looking at your earlier posts and with these as

            "gas fracking and the resulting low cost of gas is what is killing the coal industry."

            it tells me enough that your reply to me is not the only nonsense BS spin to use conservative things and apply them completely misleading with lies.

    • HuntingMoose

      Does not matter. Alive or dead, I honor them all and I am grateful for what they did: liberate my anchesters from the perils of war

    Happy Veterans Day! Thank you to all who served.

  • amaze830

    Everyone, especially our current and former veterans, Happy Veterans’ Day!

  • conservativemama

    Thank you to all our veterans!  Even in my family I had an uncle who fought for the US in the Pacific during WWII.  And he wasn’t a citizen.  He was just a young man attending school in the U.S.  He was from Cuba.  He died before I was born.

    He fought for the U.S.
    Later, he fought with Castro.
    But just two years later he warned my mother to leave when he saw that Castro was a communist.

    That’s just one story out of the millions our veterans could tell.  We are almost not worthy of the men and women, and their families, who defend us and in doing so, defend the world.

    If we need to find something to hold to after this election, let it be our armed forces.  They deserve to have us fight to save this country.  We’ll do our part while they continue to serve our country…………magnificently.

    • Laddie_Blah_Blah

      "They deserve to have us fight to save this country."

      Beautifully expressed, and spot on.  

  • faith121

    I want to thank all the veterans, especially those who served in the Pacific during WW2. I will always be grateful for your service, help and sacrifice to keep us free. God bless you always!


    Time to bring this out. I’ve watched it so many times, and it still moves me.

    This is their new one, in honor of the United States Navy.  The videos and photos are spectacular.

    • Laddie_Blah_Blah

      Great videos.  I really like that they got a brief cameo of George Washington into the "Warrior’s Song."  This country can thank its first, and one of its greatest warriors, for its very existence.  

      Most of Washington’s troops came either from New England or Appalachia.  Most of those rough-hewn Appalachian frontiersmen did not even have a state to defend.  All went for long periods without being paid. No health insurance, either.

      They risked all, and gave all, to be free.

      Honor them and the magnificent legacy they established, and passed on to us, just as we honor those who defend that legacy today.

    With all the thanks being posted, I don’t see any actual vets here yet.  I am.  US Army, E-5 in 1968.

    In memory of my dad who served USArmy WWII.

    Was Chuck Jr. a Vet? How about Chuck Sr., or Todd?

    • Lynda

       Chuck Sr was in the Army I read in their book

    • JApost

      Todd is the father of Sgt. Track Palin, currently serving in Afghanistan, after serving a tour of duty in Anbar Province, Iraq (the triangle of death). And Track volunteered to stay one month longer than he had to in Iraq. He gave his scheduled seat on the plane ride home to one of his buddies, so that his fellow soldier could go home early to tend to a family matter.

      Thank you Track for defending our country and freedoms and prayers for you and your buddies to stay safe and come home soon.

    • chuckjr

      Please read our book and you’ll see the numerous connections we have to the military… Dad, Grandpa, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, my best friend growing up, etc. 

      My eleven year old son told me last month that his main goal in life is to be a U.S. Marine.

      We are surrounded by those who serve so we never take it for granted.
