In Awe

Today is Veteran's Day. A day that is getting big play in the news and warm-fuzzy commercials.

For me it is a day that I can thank my father, both of my grandfathers (who are no longer here) and now, my fiancee.

So thank you...thanks both Gramps and Grandpa. Both of you spent years overseas fighting battles for our country...thanks to my father for spending that time in Vietnam...and thanks to Claire for volunteering to go to Iraq.

All of you sacrificed more than I will ever know. I hope I can continue to convey the awe and appreciation I have for who you are and what you did.

Thank you...
