Visiting our Veterans

We will always remember

We will always be proud

We will always be prepared

So we may always be free

These words are on a large glass panel when my wife, Skyy and I visit the VA each Saturday. The emblems of the 5 branches of militaary service are also etched in the glass.

Abraham Lincoln said, “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” We go to the VA to remember, to be proud of my family who served, to thank those who were prepared to answer our nation’s call in thanksgiving that our family is free.

On top of that, these guys and gals are hysterical! I am always grinning walking around the place. They constantly kid each other and the staff, but there is a solid understanding of respect from all parties.

I will be telling some of their stories on this blog, never to use names or genders to protect Skyy’s buddies. The veterans always show their appreciation to to us visiting. We honor them and show our appreciation by visiting with a 41 poound ball of fur and energy!
