A kind thought Z, and I appreciate it.

I don't have any, but I know people who do. I'd just like to say "Thanks" to all vets and service people.

I spoke with my Grandfather on friday and he talked about his younger brother, Cleo Struble, who was a pilot and was shot down over Germany in WWII. Apparently he was chosen from many other pilots to test radar, a new thing at the time. The plane was hit and five of his crew had parachuted out, but Cleo never made it out of that plane. Grandpa showed me a letter that he had received from Cleo, and that he has kept safe all of these years. He wrote how he couldn't wait to see his new niece (my mother, who was just one year), but he never did get to see her, nor did they ever get to seem him again. He was only 21 years young. I noticed that Grandpa was choked up as he talked. It seems they had been very close, and that all that time hadn't completely healed the pain of loss that he felt. Poor Gramps. =o(

Good grief Z, someone should make a big deal out of this! Every year, we seem to forget a little more of what the real price of Freedom is... Last year, I took an elderly vet out to our local National Cemetary for services... I was the youngest one there by several decades it seemed... I guess it was too much trouble for the younger ones to pull away from the lake or the mountains... Freedom isn't free. All I can offer is a heart felt Thank you Vets! I'll never forget!

My sentiments exactly! Thanks to all of the vets, who made our freedom possible.

It's always a good idea to remind folks why they have the day off work, Z. I've been to "The Wall". It's a sobering sight,indeed. My family and friends were lucky in the Vietnam War. Many served, but all returned intact, both mentally and physically. We lost some family members working for the Underground smuggling Jews into Norway, but nothing compared to what some American families lost in the wars.

My thanks to the Vets, and let's hope we take some time today to honor them.

Robert and Deb M:

A word of clarification:

Not to make to much of this but I have some.

I meant I didn't want to make too much of the fact that I had friends names there. Not that I didn't want to make too much of the wall.

After all, some folks have fathers, daughters, sons and husbands there. That is more important in my mind.

What a bunch of tornadoes last night.
