Remembrance [Nov. 11th, 2009|05:14 pm]
Kelly J. Cooper

My mother's father served in the Army during WWII. I don't remember him ever telling stories about it.

My mother's aunt Anne served in the Air Force for a long damn time. She has a secret smile she gets when I talk about the history of cryptography.

My Dad served in the Navy during Vietnam (he volunteered), but (fortunately) ended up on a European tour instead of in/near the jungle.

I am grateful to them, and I am grateful that they survived the experience.

I am grateful to all members of the armed forces.

I will not forget.
