I will happily sit and listen to what veterans have to say, such as the war amps 'never again' campaign pushing for younger generations to understand the true horror and sacrifice, in order to try to prevent future wars. I think that goes well beyond just giving us more weapons. That's something worth honoring.
Speaking of Vets, we've been missing one of our vets for a long time. Mikey. I believe Mikey was our oldest member and his health was not good. We haven't heard from him since mid summer. I hope he is ok but fear he isn't. I would like to remember him here as well.
I would also like to remember my Great Grandfather who fought in World War 1 and all the other men and women who helped to ensure I am able to enjoy the freedom that I have today.
I spoke to my mom tonight and she said she has some postcards from him that he sent while he was there. They are about 90 years old. Truly a piece of the past.
