What is a Veteran?

What Is A Veteran?

A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact.

Let's take a minute or two and thank God for our blessed country, and for all who sacrificed their lives that we might continue to live in freedom.

Thanks to each one of you who served in the military.

Remember Me

"Remember me always, but do not grieve for me too long. I have tried always to comfort you in times of sorrow, and have made every effort to add joy to your life. I never wanted to cause you pain.
Peace for me is certain now, and I suspect I will have eternal sleep in the earth I have loved so well.
Please, after your period of grieving for me, make room in your heart for another. You are the kind of human being that should always have a friend like me to love. Your kind and gentle heart should not be wasted on my memory for too long. Give your love to another. I know your new friend will never take my place because we had something very special. It may not be the same, but a new devoted and loving companion will in time become special in their own way.
You loved me very much and I loved you. My spirit will always be with you, and no matter how deep my sleep, my grateful heart will always remember you."

I was floated to another facility last night and this, along with a picture of someone's beloved dog, was posted on the bulletin board. I copied it, took a picture of the backyard memorial I made for Nugget, and now you have it.

Go Pistons!!!

The only game of the playoffs, Pistons vs Magic, that we lost. And we went to it. But that's OK. It was an experience to remember, we had a good time-AND-we won the series!

Pumped up for the Game

And it was all over in the first quarter when Chauncey pulled a ham string. Team Captain and point guard now injured and the Pistons fumbled through the rest of the game. But! It was still fun and I stood up to those Magic fans!!! Oh yes I did. You would have been proud of me!!!
