Delray Beach...To All Those Who Serve and Have Served.
We have had Chamber of Commerce weather this week, and word of warning to my friends up north...prepare for our annual onslaught of sunny beaches and warm weather from all of your friends down south!!!
The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. Douglas MacArthur

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy
On one of our walks this week we saw this on the beach. It came in with the tide, as did a lot of grass, miscellaneous floats, an old lobster trap, and assorted flip flops. I can only imagine the damage this would have caused to any boat that crossed its path.
Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause. Abraham Lincoln
The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation. President George Washington
Have an honorable weekend!
