    Not a vet, but not for lack of trying. Looking back on it now, I don't regret letting better men take my place.

    My husband's a vet with two breaks in service - overall he's served beginning in 1989 to present day and he's deployed 5 times - war and peace missions.

    Thank you to all the Vets out here. Without you, I wouldn't have this forum to thank you.

    Active Navy '98 to '08. Served on USS Lincoln (CVN-72) and at Pearl Harbor Shipyard.
    Navy Reserves '08 - present. Work at the various Navy shipyards for about 3-4 weeks every year.

    I come from a long line of military. Grandfather in WWII (very end), Korea, and Vietnam before retiring. Mother and father were in Army, along with several uncles and a brother (a second may be joining soon). I married a Marine turned Navy MA.

    Raised to believe that everyone who can should try to join the military and that it is certainly one of the best places to get money for education. Unfortunately nowdays the military is highly downsizing in a bad economy which means more people wanting to join and fewer being let in.

    US Army. 82nd Airborne. 1977-80.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: Are you a Vet?

    I am a proud Desert Storm Vet - US Army Reserve, Combat Medic. The experience helped me to appreciate the sacrifices that others in my family (and outside my family) who have served in past wars have made. My father is a Vietnam Vet, his father was a World War I Vet, and my great-grandfather was a Navy veteran of the Spanish-American War and served in the Philippines.

    My heartfelt thanks to all who have bravely served and sacrificed for their country. May they all be remembered on this Veteran's Day, and their courage appreciated.
