I'm not a veteran nor do I personally know any vets but huge respect to y'all. The amazing feats y'all perform or performed give us normal citizens the ability to live freely, something that is often over looked by most people. They don't realize that without y'all America might not be America. Personally I'm considering joining the marines once I graduate and become first in family to serve. Idk if this qualifies for this event but I just wanted to give respect to all the amazing vets that play this game and are part of this community and to all the vets in general.

My gandfather piloted a helicopter in World War two. He was honorably discharged when a bullet penetred the hull of the helicopter and hit him in the rear during a dogfight. The bullet traveled up underneath his skin and came out his right arm. He suffered extensive muscle damage.

In game name is bloodmancer.
