In Honor of the Veteran's Day

My father enlisted in the Marine Corp as a teen.  He ended up fighting in World War II.   He was a hero--Ray Shurtliff Jr.

Sadly, for most of my own teen years I did not understand the commitment of our military. However, as I became an adult I realized the freedoms that I enjoyed were the direct result of the men and women who served our country in our American military.

I thank God for them everyday.  But especially, on Veteran's Day and Memorial Day.  As a reminder, today I saw a emotionally moving scene.  1000 Flag posted in honor of our national heros.
