thanks y'all

As I was out for a Sunday drive yesterday, dodging tourists and traffic, passing by cookouts and festivals and holiday picnics, I came upon these flags at half staff, a moving reminder of the real reason we all have a day off...

... and just wanted to say thanks to all the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their/our country, we remember.

As I approach the gates of heaven
St. Peter I will tell
One more soldier reporting sir
I've served my time in hell
