8. I sometimes wonder what real courage is.. And although I've looked after children as a single Mom..

Put their education before even car ownership.... Known tough times..like many people...

I've never had to show real courage... The chance of being maimed or killed,

Have repeating deployments..

I'm old now....and from reading DU and other places.. I realize that the Vets from Vietnam were not appreciated oR did not feel appreciated.

And in my little way, I'd like to thank the Vets and people currently in the Military for their service, now.

So they understand that there are people at home who appreciate their choice.

I do not know what real courage is.... maybe facing land mines down a road.

I applaud Michelle Obama 's efforts...
