"Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but those in the Military don't have that problem. ~Ronald Reagan
“'Thank you' seems such a small thing to say to a Veteran! Yet, what does one say to a person -- a stranger -- who knows he could die in a moment -- and willingly do so -- for you? Perhaps genuinely living in gratitude for our freedoms, and diligently remembering him in thought and prayer, is at the very least an offering that may give a glimmer of joy to his heart ... piercing through his pain?” ~ Scarlet Smith
