Have you kissed a veteran today?

I have. And here he is in his Parris Island boot camp photo. He graduated 11 June 1973. (Marital trivia: I was 9 months and 5 days old. Not that I enjoy pointing out how old young I am.)

To the men and women who have served our country and to those who serve today, as well as their loved ones, I offer the thanks of a grateful family.

    I haven’t kissed a veteran today…. but I’m working on it! My brother’s in the Channel Islands for the Remembrance Sunday shenanigans, but I’ll save him a kiss for when I see him next.
