"In war, there are no unwounded soldiers." -Narosky
Early Saturday morning, my sons joined other scouts on the rolling green hills of our local cemetery. Scores of kids respectfully placed flags at the head of each veteran's grave.
Our sons did this last year also, and it was truly an amazing experience. It's a good opportunity to remind my children what previous generations have done for us.
My dad was in the Navy during World War II. When he was alive, Dad used to say he was "just a cook." That may be true, but each soldier contributes something valuable when they serve. Dad did his part, even if his role was small.
On this Memorial Day weekend, I'm thankful for those who serve. Their sacrifice is courageous and honorable. Their families will always have my respect and admiration.
Do you have a veteran in your family? A friend who's currently serving in the military? Please share their story...I'd love to hear it.
