Veterans Day Thank You

This week we celebrate Veterans Day, a day of appreciation and gratitude for all who have served in the United States Armed Forces.

My grandfather served as a career Army officer. My father grew up moving from base to base as his father was ordered to different locations by the Army. They lived in Kansas, Germany, France and Columbus, Ga., where my father graduated high school.

When I was young, we traveled as a family to the Panama Canal Zone, where my grandfather was stationed. I don’t remember the canal, but I do remember playing cowboys and Indians with my Aunt Candy, who is six months older than I am.
