Veterans Day 2009

I know it has been a ridiculously long time since I last posted, but I wanted to today.

To all American veterans, those who have served and those still serving, THANK YOU!

I think America is in real trouble right now, huge deficits and an administration bent on borrowing more and more money from China, putting us even deeper in the hole.

But our women and men in the various armed forces are out there doing what they can for this country, and I love them for it.

Plus, lovely wife reminded me that we were in Hawaii a long time ago on this day. Veterans Day also reminds she and I of that all-too-brief time on Oahu. The beauty of Hawaii still looms large in my memory.

This has always been my favorite photo from the National Cemetery of the Pacific in Punchbowl Crater above Honolulu on that Hawaii trip.
