I have had many family members go off to war and thankfully they all returned. This post is in rememberance of so many who did not come home. And many that did and led long, full lives. Like my neighbor Harry, a WWII veteran, proud and very involved in veteran affairs such as painting flagpoles, erecting flags, placing flowers on the appropriate graves for Memorial Day at our local Memorial Park Cemetary. He passed away a couple of years but we always went with him to the Memorial Day service and watched him march with other veterans in our local 4th July parade. Also a salute to my uncle Bunny, a veteran, who passed away recently and my uncle Jim, Viet Nam veteran who is very much alive and well, kicking up some dust in Arizona. To all of those soldiers serving in Iraq and all over the world.
