Thank you

You know who you are. You landed at Normandy, fought across Pacific Islands, and kept South Korea independant. You held the line at the Fulda gap, and kept the balance from Vietnam to Grenada. You lost comrades in Beirut, Somalia, and off the coast of Yemen, but did not lose heart. You took back Kuwait, toppled the Taliban and Saddam. You fly the planes, drive the trucks, operate the ships, subs, and tanks to make it all happen, and you make it possible for others to do so. I never had the nerve to do the jobs that you do, so thank you for taking up my slack. You will always deserve the best from me.

I was off from work yesterday because of the Holiday. Spent the afternoon raking leaves in the back yard. I live close enough to an Air Force base that I can sometimes hear the fighter jets flying over. Yesterday 3 jets came screaming over my house, flying in a V formation. On Veterans Day, raking leaves in a FREE country, it was a tremendous sound, and feeling. I, too, thank you Veterans for allowing me to enjoy the feeling.
