NOTE> Before getting into this Holiday shortened letter, I want to wish you all a great Memorial day weekend. While you go about your barbeques and beers, please take some time to think about and say a prayer for all the service men and women that have indeed laid down their lives.
While I detest war, because as General Smedley said back in the 30’s “all war is a racket”, I certainly don’t detest the brave folks that have gone off and fought and yes, died. My dad and two of his brothers stomped across France and Germany. My cousins were in Vietnam. We were the lucky ones, they came home. But many did not, and for them and the Gold Star families that lost them, I offer a prayer of thanks, and hope.
