Thank you

I just wanted to take a minute on this day of rememberance to thank all of the men and women in all of the military branches for protecting and preserving what our country stands for.

I also want to remember the following:

- My half-brother, for his service in the Navy during the Korean conflict

- My grandfather, for his service in the Navy during World War I

- Lastly, but most importantly, my dad, for his Naval service during World War II. Today, I take out your medals to remember you, and the flag they laid over your coffin to wish you were still with me.

Thanks to all vets and those who support them, whether or not you believe in the reason they were deployed.

I didn't log in at all yesterday because of Remembrance Day.

Thank you for posting this reminder to all of us of service of those who won the freedoms we enjoy today. I too think of those with whom I've been privileged to serve and who aren't with us anymore.
