Thank you, Veterans and Active Military!

Sunday, one of the men in our church who served in Korea shared pictures and stories of his experience. It was incredibly moving. And as his wife whispered to me, he was quite a hunk in those photos.

Today as we celebrate Veteran's Day, I want to say thank you to the men like Porter and my father who have served in the military. Some, like my father, served in more than one war. But I also want to say thank you to their families. I will never forget what it was like while my father and his National Guard unit served during Desert Storm. My mom and many other women and men make it possible for their spouses to serve by keeping everything working on the home front.

So thank you. And boy do I wish I had a scanned photo of my Daddy in his flight uniform in Vietnam. To echo, Pat, he was a hunk, too :-)
