Happy Veterans Day!

Hope you have a great day today, and take a few minutes to thank a veteran for their service to our country.
My dad served in the Army...
In this photo, he is the one with the mop! He was disabled when the bridge he was driving his truck across was blown up. He endured multiple operations and a lifetime of pain. We unfortunately lost him in 1995 to lung cancer.

My middle brother serves in the Alabama National Guard. And I myself retired 1 October 2009 after almost 27 years working with the Army, as a civilian. I am proud of all of our Armed Services, each person has an important responsibility. As a country, we citizens owe a lot to these service members. And, I'm sure each and every one of you in other countries feel the same about your men and women in service to your join us on this Veterans Day...and give thanks to those who protect our freedoms.
