It used to be that day at school where you got out of class and there was a ceremony and you didn’t necessarily understand all of what was going on but you stood up next to your grandmother and thought about the grandfather who had served both in WWII and Korea.

Today, I honor specifically three veterans of Iraq. The Tech Sargent– who voluntarily served two tours; AD’s husband–who was wounded while serving and who is still working to regain full health; and the 2nd LT–who just emailed me to tell me he’s headed home in a week!!!

Please take a moment today to think of those who are serving and who have served, and also of their families.
