They are our heroes, some still living, and some not, but regardless, they do deserve heartfelt thanks. And to think one in 4 homeless people are Veterans. That is so terribly sad, I understand that for some it is a choice they made years ago.... but we as the People, have we some how failed them?
I do my very best to visit the cemeteries on Veteran's Day and Memorial Day... visit with my Grandpa and just take in the things he had taught me, shared with me in my short time with him. I think about him every day... not mournful, but missing, and in hopes that the great wisdom he gave to me, still holds a bit of magic... For In times of strife, I look to his simple words, and reflect on them.
Thank you all for your service and devotion to our country... politics aside, we are a grateful nation!!!
