I think of my father. He was in the Army from ’68 to ’70, I believe. He was stationed in Germany. He got lucky—he was drafted, though.
I also think of my buddy Michael Morris from work. He was active duty until recently; he was wounded over in Iraq.

Last night I was thinking about my friend Larry Howard. He was patrol leader of my Scout troop. He died in Vietnam doing guard duty.
He was one of three people from my hometown (Sterling, Illinois) who died in Vietnam. I went to sleep thinking about how he died for our country.

I’m thinking of all our veterans over two centuries who have sacrificed for the freedom we enjoy today.
I toured the U.S.S. Constellation yesterday. In front of it, there was a Marine announcing the names of the Missing In Action who will never return to the U.S.A.
It shows that our vets are not only fighting for our freedom, but the freedom of those abroad.
