I just want to take a moment and 'voice' a sincere
"Thank you" to all those who have served or are serving our country.
I appreciate your sacrifice and the sacrifice of your family.
I do not take it for granted.
My son, Joshua,
fresh out of boot camp in August 2007,
my favorite sailor!
Today we decorate the graves of those fallen for our freedom ...
On thy grave the rain shall fall from the eyes of a mighty nation!
~Thomas William Parsons
