Thanks, dad. And grandpa, whom I never met. And Grammy, who met grandpa when they were both marines. And all my various uncles, too.

My kids treat me like gold today, which is nice.

Thanks for those who have put their lives on the line for all of our freedom and liberty! Without you, our country would not exist.

Interesting facts about Veterans Day... This is the 100th anniversary. Originally setup by W. Wilson to mark those who served in WWI after the armistice in 1918 to start the following year.. The number of veterans in congress peaked in the mid 70s to 80s at around 70+%. Same with Presidents. Today it is closer to 20%.
