Never forget the men standing between you and tyranny.

Our greatest generation is passing away right before our eyes. If you know a lonely veteran spend some time with him. He will tell you how the story will end. That minute or two a day you spend with an elderly person can extend their life for many years. All it takes is a bad step and their life is over if no one checks on an elderly person.

Don't think there are any words to express my sympathy for all those he was touched in his life and the thanks for my freedom I enjoy.

~~SALUTE~~
