I always think of my great uncle Don. A WWI vet. I knew him when I was a little shaver. The older I get, the more amazed I am at that. I knew someone who fought in the trenches in WWI. I know people who have fought in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Big Sand Box and other places all over the globe.
But I always think of Uncle Don first. What a life he led! What miracles he witness during his long life! From the farm to France. And that was just the beginning. What a life. And what lives we all have. Thanks to people like my uncle Don.
So there you go. Please take a moment to remember those who made this holiday weekend possible for you.
