I went up to WalMart this afternoon to pick up a prescription. Out front, like every Veteran's Day, the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) was selling Buddy Poppies. I always stop and buy one in honor of my Dad who fought in WWII and a grandfather who fought in WWI.
One of my bestest friends was a nurse stationed in Saudia Arabia during the Gulf War. And, I have a couple of friends who were stationed in MASH units during the Viet Nam conflict.
So, with this holiday weekend, as we honor our Veterans, I just wanted to say thanks to the veteran nurses as well as so many men who lost their lives and fought for my country, so I can sit on my couch sipping Diet Coke and playing on my computer today. We owe our lives and our lifestyles to these men and women.
