Happy Veteran's Day
On this day, Thor implores you to pause and remember the veterans who have served our country for 235 years.
They include a great uncle I never knew I had, who was shot down over Italy during World War II, leaving a 20 year old widow and no children, and a great grandfather who served in the Spanish American War. I don't know much about him, so I like to picture the man as one of Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders.
I'd also like to salute Debbie Cook's oldest son, who's in his final weeks of basic training in the Marine Corps, and Bev and Larry's son, a Lieutenant Colonel. My hat's off to both of you for raising such fine men.
Happy Veteran's Day, everyone. Pause to give thanks for those who defend our liberty so valiantly!
