Happy Veterans Day
While in San Antonio last week, we took a brief, unplanned photo stop at the Alamo and got there just in time to see a small group of Army folks gathering. We were witness to a re-enlistment ceremony. The officer spoke of the service and sacrifice of the family--his wife, children and parents were among the crowd. That always chokes me up. "They also serve who wait at home". It was a very special moment to be a small part of. The crowd cheered and applauded after the oath--an oath that means a lot to me too.
Here is a salute to all veterans, the unknown and the many I had the honor to serve with in the United States Marine Corps--Semper Fi!
