Today my entry will be to honor those who willingly gave their lives for our country.  Being 52 and growing up in the Vietnam Era, the wall is very sobering and moving for me personally.  Many young men in my hometown died in Vietnam and their names are on the wall. My BF served in Vietnam. His brother's name is on that wall.

                My father, as many other's father's served in World War II.  Megan was in Normany when she was in France.  The number of graves are unbelievable.  Sad to say, but I have seen no Korean Conflict tags.  Lets not forget that many of our grandfather's, father, brothers, friends served during that time also.

And don't forget the many women who have and are serving this nation in the Armed Forces and have given their lives for this country.

                

Bless the troops who are now serving in the Middle East.  All are in danger's way.  I pray for their safety.  Our friends in the UK also have many troops serving there and have lost many loved ones.  We may not all agree with the politics but support those who are carrying out the efforts.

and to those from the UK who are serving also........God Bless!!!!!!   CHRIS

Very good tribute. As always, it's the soldiers that have to do the politician's dirty work. And get the blame if it goes awry. It's people like you that give them the tribute they deserve.
