Veteran

Veteran My Grandfather, WWII Veteran (photo by my mom, Cheri)

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!

(Katharine Lee Bates)

Thank you, today, to this hero and for remembering him so poignantly, Heidi. That beautiful face perfectly represents the very best of our great country! What a privilege it is to acknowledge him and all of our other veterans today. Thank you for our many freedoms that came at a great cost to you and yours. Destiny
