Thursday (of course everyone one here i am sure knows) was veterans day, and my sons elementary school gave the kids an opportunity to honor veterans. My son asked his Great Grandfather (that has been under our care for the last 15 years) to come and eat lunch with him there. I was a real joy to see that at such a young age, he has such admiration already for what that means. He served in the Korean war and was MIA for 6 months and hardly ever says a word about any of it. He is to a stage that he doesn't do much but go from the bed to the couch to the bathroom, and back to bed. But he got up and dressed in his Korean war vet hat that my son had bought with his own money and hobbled his way to the school, barely making it down to the lunch room, to have lunch with my son. The two of them sat there together while my son pelted him with questions like "Did you have green beans in the army?" I was very proud of how he honored his great grandfather, and he planned out every bit of it himself. I just wanted to take a second myself to say thank you to all those that have served, and take a moment to remember my late Grandfather (WWII) who was the closest thing to a dad that i had growing up. I myself was not in the military, so i am indebted that much more to you and your actions. I was reminded that i did not say thank you, and was planning on putting up this little story, but did not know where to post it. So i figure this was as good an area as any! Thanks to all for your service, sacrifice, and dedication! Hope you had a good veterans day.
