Memorial Day

At church on Sunday, our pastor asked that all the vets stand up.  Only 3 people out of perhaps 2000 stood.  I was in the choir and knew that couldn't be correct! Suddenly, the pastor recognized the problem and quickly said "Oh, I mean Veterans!" and the three veterinarians took their seats while 20-30 veterans stood to the applause of the congregation.  It was a light-hearted moment during a serious, respectful tribute to the men and women that died to ensure that we could gather that Sunday.  I hope you have a story to tell about how you honored our war dead.

That is a great tribute in itself to bring that up in Church before your congregation.  I was surprised that the per-centage wasn't higher than that, but it is to honor those that have fallen as well and I am sure their were family members in attendance that could have stood on behalf of their love ones.

I'm kind of surprised, too, Don.  I guess it's being egocentric, but I semi-figured most males my age had served.  It was nice nonetheless.
