In Honor Of Those Who Serve

In honor of all those who have serve and continue to serve, thank you so much for all you do.

As a child whose family had a long tradition of service, I can remember hearing stories about the horrific things various family members survived or witnessed in the heat of battle...only late at night and after one too many sips of Wild Turkey, because no one talked about it otherwise.  I am amazed at what so many of the members of my family managed to survive, and grateful for what they sacrificed during so many difficult years.

Especially the ones who served during WWII. 

So thank you, veterans, for what you put on the line for all of us.  Your service is honored here.
