Do you feel lucky?

I do.
23 years, 4 months, and 22 days of service and I made it home.
A lot of good people didn't.
A lot more good people won't.
So please remember what this holiday is all about.
Sure have fun this weekend folks.
Grill, chill, and wave the flag; but remember how lucky we are.
Lucky to have so many give so much so that we may enjoy the freedom and security far to many of us take for granted.
Enjoy the video. and have a great Memorial Day Weekend.

This is for Dwayne, for Dave, and for John.
Although their luck ran out before mine, I was lucky to have known and flown with them all.
This is for the Uncle I never met: I hope I have brought honor to your name sir.
Peace and thank a veteran this weekend.

Lovely post. Personally, I don't think any president or member of Congress should be allowed to vote to go to war unless he/she is willing to send his/her own child to fight along with all the others. If this were a law, I bet that humanity would make quantum leaps in its ability to find ways other than war to resolve conflicts. Thank you for your service and may all the people responsible for the wars burn in hell.
