Memorial Day :: Thank You


That's my grandfather on the right. He served in the Pacific theater in WWII. He came from a small mill village in southwestern North Carolina, and his family had lived in the area since Tryon County was half the state. I workout with a woman whose husband is in the National Guard and this spring returned from deployment in Iraq. I think that serving in the National Guard is very honorable, and I told her so. The DAR is going to be laying a wreath at General Logan's monument at Grant Park today, and I will be there.

Thank you to all the men and women who have served our country.

Thanks to a Yankee Army Dad and a mother from Lincolnton, NC we spent a lot of time all over the state: Charlotte, Fayettville, Chapel Hill, Huntersville...Lived in Chicago for almost 20 years and even made an appearence on Check Please. That's a great looking grandfather and a great looking blog.
