Veteran's Day

                                

I wanted to take a moment and thank all of those who have and are currently serving our country.  Each and every man and woman who don that uniform are heroes in my book.

I salute Uncle Ed (Vietnam, army), my Uncle Larry (Korea, Navy, now deceased) and my Dad (Vietnam, Navy), for their service.

Today, on Veteran's Day, I hope you have taken a moment to reflect on the price of freedom and the wealth we have in the US. 

And, although I, and I am sure many of you are not happy with the Iraq situation or the administration, never make the mistake of taking that out on member of the service.  They serve at the will of the President.  However, and wherever that may be. 

be well,
Dawn

Very nice entry.  Yes, we should support our troops even if we do not support the war.  Hats off to your family members who have served.
