    Most either don't know or forget what this day is all about. Those who paid the ultimate price are honored in my family and it is anything but a Holiday or extra day off from work. I fly my flag with honor and salute all those who died fighting for it and our freedoms. My own father is 88 right now and still suffering from wounds he got in 1944.

    RIP!

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    Today I'll be thinking of the marines that lived in the barracks next to mine prior to giving all in Iran.

    Today I sent flowers and chocolate covered cherries to all the people in my family who served and are still alive. The oldest is my uncle at 89, the youngest is my cousins granddaughter, at 17. Even my brother I haven't had the stomach to speak to in 20 years. This is the first period of time in my life I've not had a relative in harm's way in a combat or security zone. Everyone is in the U. S. of A.
