Pre-Memorial Day thoughts

I'm watching a spectacular PBS show for Memorial Day. Gary Sinise is always on these shows because he's such a big supporter of the troops.

Many of you who know me, know that my brother and sister are both in the Army. My sister is getting out and joining the Reserves at the end of September. She is a captain and has served two tours: one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. She is currently home safe and done being deployed. My brother is a Staff Sergeant and he is serving his second tour; his first was in Iraq and he is now also in Afghanistan.

Not a day goes by that I don't worry about our troops and especially my brother. They do the impossible in sometimes the most difficult and dangerous situations.

My Dad was an Air Force veteran who served as a meteorologist in the Vietnam War. My grandfather served in World War II.

I'm proud of all our troops, past and present, who have taken upon themselves to do what has been needed to be done.
