Memorial Day Thoughts

Veteran–Whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve. Whether combatant or not. A veteran is someone who at one point in his life (or hers) wrote a blank check to the citizens of the United States, for an amount “up to and including their life.” No one pushed them   to that point. No one ‘made’ them do it. Honor is a good word to help us understand it. Valor seems like it should be in there.  In all cases they stood at the door when or if the wolf growled.

I have a great fortune of brothers from several phases of life. My veteran family shares a known, unspoken bond. Especially those from the era in which we served. Happy Memorial Day to you. Happy Memorial Day to everyone.
