Veterans Day 2011...



Very early this morning my phoned buzzed... My first thought was "who would be texting me at this time of the day?".

I looked at my phone and was thankful, thankful to have a friend that knew what today was, knew what I did, and thought enough to say something.



Shortly after that I heard the words of Pearl Harbor survivor Frank Curre and realized that many of the scars inflicted on veterans are ones that can't be seen. And I wished I could say thank you to him too.



Be warned that the two minute audio clip is graphic and may be hard to listen to, but then again it must of been even harder to live through... and continue to live with.

Thank you to all of us that have served! This soo reminds me of the times my Grandpa would tell me the stories of when he served in the Navy in WWII. In many ways I'm glad I was so curious. Now I appreciate him more.
