Happy Veteran's Day to all who have relinquished their civil liberties, their freedoms and risked their lives to protect those Americans who may or may not appreciate what we have done for them. Remember, we do this for the safety of ALL generations, just as they have done before us and will continue to do long after we have left the service or this world... This is extended to military, police, fire fighters, and medical persons. This country is free because of our combined sacrifice, not the persons who have a personal agenda and use us as their pawns.I had intended for everyone to see this Toast that was spoken at every Tag-in/Tag-out ceremony at the Lizard Lounge in Enrique Soto Cano, Air Base Honduras by the members of 1-228th Aviation Brigade. I served a 1 year tour their from August 2010 - August 2011. The most amazing, humbling and eye-opening experience in my entire, and current, 6 year military career. It goes as follows: *Knock your 1-228th AV Coin until you receive your shot* Once all members have received their shot, *Raise to toast*"To Fallen Comrades: Past, Present, Future; 1 Team, 1 Fight! Winged Warriors!"*slam shot glass*This was part of our tradition in the 1-228th AV. The entire Tag-in/Tag-out process can never be fully appreciated without actually participating. This Toast has been around since the original inception of the 228th AV in ~1987 - ???? This will carry on in spirit forever.
