Thank you!

Today is Veterans Day here in the US, I want to thank all veterans!

Thank you to my grandfathers one who was at Pearl Harbor when it was bombed that started WWII for us and one who worked stateside to build the atomic bomb that ended it.

I want to thank my father who left to serve in an unpopular war when so many his age didn't or wouldn't

I want to thank my Uncle for serving in the war in Korea that is all but forgotten.

I want to thank my cousin who joined the Navy to see the world and saw the Aleutian Islands instead.

I want to thank the men and women at Ft Hood who had no idea that they could be the victims of a terrorist attack while on base in Texas.

I want to thank all the young men and women who have chosen to serve even when we are in the midst of the war on terror.

Thank you, I pray for you! God Bless you!
