A Tip of the Hat

God bless all our veterans--those who gave the last full measure in service to their country and countrymen, and those who never saw combat, but responded to the call of patriotism. And God bless those who passed through the fire and out the other side, as well as those currently standing in the line of fire in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. All of you have my eternal thanks, respect, and appreciation.

God bless my maternal and paternal grandfathers, who withstood and survived some of the most hellish conditions ever devised by the twisted human heart, in WWII and Korea. They have gone on to their reward.

I know that we would not enjoy the freedoms we have without you.
