May God richly bless all our Veterans..past present and yet future. Also the families and loved ones of those who serve.  Lot of sacrifices made by those folks too.

Today we visited WalMart where Marine Corps volunteers were doing  the 'Toys for Tots' collection. I was  in tears shaking the hands of the two Marine Corps servicemen as I entered the store. I composed myself as I walked around the store, and talked about the USMC 237th birthday as I left. The young USMC recruit was thrilled to hear the story of our 95 year old friend who is a  USMC veteran and a friend of Pappy Boyington of Black Sheep notoriety.

I rarely give a standing ovation at a concert or speech, but I will applaud those in uniform as they walk through an airport together. I go out of my way to say "Thank You" because they are all amazing human beings.

They honor their country, put themselves in harms way, sacrifice family and they do so selflessly.

They endure horrible living conditions and see things no man or woman should see. It is service to all of us- including those who use the rights the veterans provided to disrespect and dishonor them.

America might not be perfect, but it is still amazing and all the credit should go to those who have served to ensure it remain the land of the FREE- it is because of THEM that it is also the home of the brave.

... and see things no man or woman should see.

A couple of years ago I was talking to a CHP officer about how he got into the job. He explained that he came from the Marine Corps and bypassed the CHP academy. He went on to say that he'd seen things while serving in the USMC that nobody should see.
