A special thank you to our AA members who also serve in the US Armed Forces

I want to give a big shout out this holiday weekend to all of our US military personal who make the sacrifices that allow the rest of us to do things like hang out on Aquarium Advice all day.

A personal thank you to fort384 and my good friend Deckape, who not only proudly wear the uniform...but are always there to provide me with advice and experience when needed.

This weekend if you see a member of our United States Military, buy them a cold one (age allowing), or at the very least tell them thanks.

Being responsible...fishless cycling defines it, fish-in requires it. Choose wisely.

I'm a former Army Ranger with the 75th who served time in Afganistan, I give thanks everyday and remember those who didn't come back with me.

That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

Seems like yesterday I was reciting this, standing there reciting something that everyone who served before me and gave their lives to allow the freedoms that we all love is a feeling I'll never forget. There's always certain moments that mean something special to me, that's one of them.

The last time I said the oath, I was standing on the Arizona memorial re-enlisting for the last time. I get chills thinking back on it.

Great thread eco

We're (my family) thankful for all those that are serving, have server, or paid the ultimate price in defense of our great nation.

Don't forget to fly old glory in honor of our heros and country today.
