    All the Veterans and current Service men and women

    To all of you who have signed "the blank check" with your life on the line for those of us like me that just thoroughly enjoy all of the freedoms we do have here in the USA, thank you.
    This thank you is for those who have served or are serving currently. I greatly appreciate all you have done for our country. You are heroes.

    Tomorrow is for remembering those who died in all our wars to give and preserve freedom. We have a ceremony at the plaza in town, as we also do on Veteran's Day in November. I have missed one in 32 years.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    God Bless all who have served (includes my dad), are serving (includes my nephew) and especially those who have given the ultimate sacrifice...

    While Memorial Day is to remember those who died in service to our country, I ask you to also remember those who came back severely disabled - burned, loss of limbs, blinded, traumatic brain injury, PTSD, and many other injuries. While they didn't die, those warriors will live a very different and restricted life compared to what they might have.

    And while we should remember those who died, we can't help the dead but we sure can, and should, help those living "who bore the battle".
