It's Veteran's Day, and while this might be a short post, it's long on sentiment.
Several years ago I took my Dad on an Honor Flight trip to Washington. They're a remarkable organization working to bring as many veterans to D.C. to see and appreciate the various military memorials. One of my favorite quotes Honor Flight has shared on their website over the years is:
"If you can read this, thank a teacher.
If you can read this in English, thank a veteran."
From Honor Flight
So, to our son Brian, who's currently serving, Uncle Randy, friends who served, mostly in Viet Nam, and the sons and daughters of friends serving today, thank you for your service and sacrifice. We're able to live the life we do, thanks to everything you've given for this country.
And if you have a veteran in the family, make it a point to check out HonorFlight.org. It's a pretty amazing experience. Just click on the banner below.
"We can't all be heroes because somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by!"
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
