A day we've set aside to remember, honor, and recognize those individuals who've dedicated YEARS of their lives to serve us, the American people. How appropriate that it falls in November, a month crescendoing with Thanksgiving. I don't know how many times I've told Brad that I could never have done what he did...I suppose thats why I didn't. He tells me stories of buddies Joey, Jimmy, Wilkes, Dominguez and many others...of the stuff they did here and over there. And he doesn't miss active duty, but knows being a Marine sets him apart. That goes for all branches of the service. Anyone who chooses to join the military deserves our thanks. Thank you vets, I hope you are blessed to spend your day with family or friends. A special thanks to you babe, I love you!
