Two of the most important men to cross my life path were called. They were called to service. They were called to duty. They were called by either a draft(my grandfather) or a want to serve(my best friend from high school, Greg).
Today I celebrate them.
To Poppy Jack: Thank you for serving our Country in WWII. You are still my hero and I love you for that. You have the most amazing stories and such a gentle way of telling them to us. You have a kind heart and fun spirit. You are funny, silly and compassionate. You are my hero.
To Greg: Not a day goes by that I dont miss you. I still remember passing notes in AP US History, walking down the halls and chatting and talking on instant messenger to the wee hours of the morning. The day I found out you were killed was one of the worst of my life. Your funeral was breathtakingly beautiful just like your heart and your spirit. We all love and miss you everyday. You are my hero.
Happy Veterans Day to all the Veterans who served our Country and Still continue to serve.
