    I may drive out and sit by my grandfathers grave. Will definitely pray. Other than that, not sure I will acutally celebrate. I have cleaned the garage, used a chain saw and raked and weeded some flower beds so far.

    While I had breakfast I went through my high school yearbook looking at classmates who died in Viet Nam. I graduated in 1966, and the draft board wasted no time pulling us in as soon as we graduated HS. The percentage of guys in our small school who were killed or injured still makes me sad and alarmed, I feel pretty lucky. Viet Nam was a strange war, still not sure why we did that, and convinced that it was not to protect our freedom in anyway.

    Thanks for going Shifty. Anytime I see a service member, I go out of my way to tell them thanks for serving. I am teaching my boys to do the same. One day while getting a Slurpee at 7-11, my son sees a man in hat that said he was an Army vet. Wade asks if he can go say thank you for serving. The man got tears in his eyes and told us about being spit at when he came home from Nam. Told Wade it was the first time ANYONE had ever told him thank you.

    A few weeks back at a local burger joint, we saw a retired Marine. My youngest went up and told him thank you for serving. The man just sort of shrugged it off and we walked away. A few minutes later, he came up to the table to give the boys a Marine Corp Toys for Tots Coin that he had carried in his pocket for years. Told us how much it meant for the boys to say thanks.

    I think the shrug off was just because he was either emotional or did not know what to say. It really is sad that so few openly tell our service men and women thanks for the sacrifices that they make.

    I will also pray today for our leaders to make wise decisions about how they use the members of our armed forces.

    Thanks for that reminder Shifty.

    I thank them every chance I can get. I love to take the time to sit and hear their stories.

    I'll be celebrating the fact that these wonderful women and men - and their families - have loved our country so, that they sacrificed so much.

    I'm working this year but next year I'm going to put a group ride together and visit a grave in Scio Ny. He was my daughter's age. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Dunham

    With former squadron-mates, flew the missing man formation, in memory of those who had been lost.
    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if people could get to live suddenly, instead of just dying suddenly?

    My family and I might visit my mother in law. Just to have a little gathering with them and celebration so that they may also see their wonderful grandsons.
