Sam: A place to say thanks




“I came on to HBO looking for a specific Vets Day thread to say thanks to folks like Stickman and other HBO’ers who have served our country. My great grandfather, Roy Hooper, fought in the U.S. Army during World War I in France (Fourth Engineering Battalion, the combat troops they were attached to were low and he would end up with rifle in hands fighting a German push for 23 days), my grandfather, Wallace Kenyon served in the U.S. Navy, my great uncle David Taylor just recently retired as a supply Sgt. for the U.S. Army, my recently-passed-away uncle Nick Laskey fought in Vietnam as a helicopter gunner (who would receive a purple heart) and I’ve got two cousins on both sides of my family who served in the Army and Navy.

A big thanks to my friends and family who have served!”

Please consider this thread a place to express your thanks to our veterans, including our own Stickman. I’m sure we’ve got many other Hucksters who have served their country.
