Because they served, we are free.

One who served.

Today the US celebrates Veteran’s Day.  My flag is flying out front.  And my mind is especially on the veterans in my family.  My father, my father-in-law, 2 of my uncles, a brother-in-law, my cousin and his son – who just enlisted in the Air Force.  It’s an amazing thing, to give part, or all, of your life in service of your country.  It wasn’t even yet my dad’s country when he enlisted shortly after immigrating to the States from Ireland.

To all US Veterans and their families:  I thank you.
