from our usual light-hearted banter
to salute the brave men and women
who have put their lives on the line
to preserve the freedom that
we all take for granted.
Not only do we want to thank them,
we also want to thank the
spouses, children, parents and grandparents,
aunts, uncles and cousins
who have supported these
valiant men and women
with their thoughts and prayers
as they served our country.
our Granny, our friend Richard and our Grandpa,
standing is our friend Preston.
Grandpa, Richard and Preston
are all WWII Veterans.
Our Dad is a Vietnam
and Dessert Storm Era Veteran.
Our Great Grandfathers
were WWI Veterans,
and our Great-Greats were
Civil War Veterans
Great (6) was a
Revolutionary War Veteran.
Long may she wave,
