Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  Coming from a family with a long military history, I want to say 'thank you' to all of the men and women who sacrifice their lives, their families and their comfort and safety to protect everyone in the US.  So when you take a bite of that hot dog and watch the parade, just remember why we have this day off.
 My dad and grandpa (who fought on D-Day in WWII and then joined the Navy to fight in the Korean War).  My dad was a paratrooper in the Vietnam War.
 My sweet friend Tim in Kabul.
 Little man Jack in a flight suit from his uncle (my brother), based in Germany in the Air Force.
Yes...there's even a Tim Horton's in Afghanistan (courtesy of the Canadian contingency there)!

God bless America!
