|My two nephews|
Today's Veterans Day, and we should all take a few moments to thank all of the men and women who keep our country safe and free! My nephew Eric joined the Marines and went to Iraq for a year. He's now back home, and out of the Marines. Thankfully he returned to us without injury and we appreciate all he did during his four year stint in the Marines. I will always keep his letters home as a reminder that sometimes we all have to do difficult things in life to make things better for others.
My nephew Ben always talked about being in the Army since he was a very small boy, and in his junior year of high school joined the National Guard. Ben is still in the National Guard three years later, attending college to become a police officer, and proud to wear his uniform.
I love my nephews and am very proud of them! So forget about not getting any mail today, and appreciate those vets!
