Memorial Day

Today is for my Grandfather, who fought in the Navy during WWII. Pacific Campaign.

Today is for my father, who did two tours in Viet Nam.

Today is for my Great-Grandfather, who was a scout for the Army during the American-Indian wars. Although the only knowledge I have of him is second hand, that's still enough. According to my father, my Great-Grandfather was a mean, ornery cuss who wanted things done his way, rightdamnnow.

Now I know where I get that from.

If you see a vet, thank them. If you know a vet, call them up. But never, ever forget what those veterans have done for this country.
