Happy Veterans Day!

November 11th, 2013

veterans-day-topIn case your coffee hasn’t kicked in yet this morning, it’s Veterans Day, the 11th day of the 11th month.

There’s quite a few people all around you — you may know a few, be related to a few — that did a whole helluva lot just so you can read Joe’s daily screeds about the Bucs (and of course, gawk at Rachel Watson).

So if you know someone that served once upon a time, just say thanks. Or, Joe recommends what Joe does, a tradition he started a few years ago. Later this afternoon, Joe will walk into a local VFW hall — an American Legion post will suffice — and step up to the bar and buy a round for the vets. Joe will then promptly walk out once the bill is paid.

It’s a small token of appreciation for what quite a few did so slobs like us wouldn’t be forced to eat sauerkraut each day, with a side of sushi and subjected to soccer.

Also, try to keep those who are currently serving overseas to protect us from the animals that fly planes into buildings in your thoughts at least once today.

You’ll be better off for it, trust Joe.

    Amen Joe. There are sports figures we admire but the true heroes are our men and women in uniform who risk their lives and may lose their lives to keep us safe. God bless them this day and every day.

    Im currently serving in Afghanistan and I continue to check in when I have down time. Hell sometimes I have to read like three and four pages to get caught up but I look forward to it everytime! Thank You Joe for your hard work and dedication to keeping Bucs Fans around the world informed with the latest and greatest Buc News. JoeBucsFan has been an awesome Morale Booster!

    God bless the heroes serving in
    the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines…

    …as well as the heroes in the Coast Guard, National Guard
    and local Law Enforcement agencies.


    P.S. Thanks to JBF for helping to entertain Marines.
