    The reason why Brenda and I arrange for the sound system for the Cenotaph Service (Remembrance Day 11/11/) every year here in our town is because of the indebtedness, extreme gratitude and respect we have for all those that have served. There are girls now in Afghanistan that are able and allowed to read a 'book' and now get educated because of those that have served and those as well that have paid the supreme sacrifice. I am truly humbled by the selflessness that is shown by those that have given us and those in these other less fortunate countries the privilege to be so egocentric......it's the irony that is now coming to be understood by the younger generation......and that is great....there is hope.
    We wonder if a kid on the street with a 'no fear' Nike T-shirt would even fathom what 4 tours in Iraq was like.....

    Looks like I missed a lot starting early this morning.

    I'm ASS-U-MING that everything came out OK with him.

    Thus far, I've been blessed with very healthy kids.

    Well I'm back home eating dinner now. The surgery went great no issues, he was kind of crabby after, then started bossing my wife around (must have been the meds lol). Thanks for the kind words everyone.

    Thanks Frank, and everyone else, it seemed like a good thread lots of positive thinking and all around good people. That's sad to hear Frank, my best friend lost his dad at a young age and I always felt sad for him and it has to be hard to deal with it, one more reason to love your kids more!
