veterans day: Thankful For My Parents (#2) - 11/10/18 11:43 AM

"Being a soldier is more than courage.  It is the ultimate sacrifice of being willing to die for something greater than yourself."
On this Veteran's Day how could I be anything but thankful for all U.S. Veterans who have served our country so bravely? 
In saying that, I include my Dad who served in the Army in World War II... and my Mother who worked in the shipyards as a welder in support of the war effort.  One of my regrets in life is that neither my Dad or Mom lived long enough to tell me stories about what it was … (18 comments)
