They're acting crazy, but that is why it's called the Twinkie Defense

Pardon the expression, but what kind of ding dong goes out and buys 16 boxes of Twinkies and Ding Dongs and then goes on eBay and advertise three boxes for $300?

Keeping our promise to veterans

Every year, our country comes together on Veterans Day to honor the brave men and women of our armed services who risk their lives daily to protect our freedoms and to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending our country.
