Thank you, Veterans.
Thank you, active duty military.
My father is a Vietnam Veteran. He spent thirteen months there, most of it in the jungle. My paternal grandfather was a World War II Veteran. He fought at The Battle of the Bulge. My maternal grandfather was a World War I Veteran. He lied about his age and enlisted at age 16.
Long time readers of my blog know that I send care packages to soldiers stationed in combat zones. I get the addresses through the website anysoldier.com. It's a very worthwhile organization.
I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the brave American men and women, past, present and future for their dedication, service and sacrifice.
