A friend sent this link to me. Made me cry. Hope you guys enjoy it.
I also want to give a special thank you to all of you who served "in country" during times of war. My sweet little butt was safely stationed in Japan while some of you were having your tails shot at, watching your friends die, and eating C-rations in the heat of Viet Nam.
And more special thank you's to:
2 of my birth brothers who served in the AF.
Several cousins and an uncle who served in Viet Nam
My birth father, a Navy Korean war vet.
My uncle, a Navy and Air Force vet who served in WWII as a 16 year old seaman, a Korean war airman and a Seabee for two tours in Viet Nam.
My Grandfather, one of two men to survive his battalion being mustard gassed in Germany during WWI. He spent the rest of his life with service-connected disabilities and no compensation, but he didn't complain. Not even when he was then beaten up during WWII for being "a German", though he was a US citizen.
And two great-uncles who are buried at Gettysburg.
They are part of why I'm free today.
Happy Veterans' Day to all.
