Thank A Veteran On Veterans Day

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 11, 2011 – 8:29 am

It’s Friday and the Vikings preparations for Monday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers continue. And vikings.com’s coverage of the Vikings and their NFC North matchup continues as well. All 3 coordinators will have press conferences later this morning and you can watch those live right here on vikings.com.

But before we get going today with numerous blog entries about the game, please take a moment to call or personally thank the military veterans in your life on Veterans Day.

It’s because of the bravery and courage of our Veterans that we as American citizens are able to enjoy things such as freedom, security and even football.

So thanks, veterans, we appreciate the job you’ve done to serve and protect all of us.

    Here’s to my grandfather Allan George Maghan, lost at sea on the USS Bonefish-223 in WWII and to my father, David Allan Maghan, CWO-3, who served during the Korean and Vietnam wars!! Thanks for all that you did and your fellow servicemen for sacrificing your lives to protect our country and our freedom!! We are able to enjoy the things we do because of you!! My Dad was a huge Viking fan and he was the reason I became a Viking fan!! Both were from Minnesota!!

    Yes, I am a Retired Army Sgt..I was walking out of the Supermarket this afternoon dressed in my former Combat Green Uniform and A little gray haired lady walked up to me, she noted I was wearing my Combat Infranty Badge, and said “If it wasn’t for you soldiers from the past, there wouldn’t have been a future”.. I thanked her and then pointed to a young couple walking by with their two beatiful young children, and said to her, ” You. and those young people made all the sadness and grief I had to put up with, worth it”….I meant what I said…A number of my famliy, and friends didn’t make it back…
