Day of honor

Veteran's Day

On Veteran’s Day I can’t help but think of those I have known who served me by serving my country.

Some have died.  Some finished their tour.  Some still serve.  To all of you, I say thank you.

My grandfather, my dad, my father-in-law, my uncles.

Bob, Charlie, Tom, Martin, Bill, Robbie, Chuck, Rick, Stoney, Clyde, Ed, Pank, Dave, Diana, Mike, Joey, Angela, Troy, Tisha, Jered.

There are so many others whose names I don’t know but they stand strong, proud, brave and true.

Thank you.

You testify to a devotion, a promise kept, a duty well tended.

Your lives exhibit this truth, “No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends.”

Thank you.

You show me Jesus.
