I want to take this time on this Memorial Day to say THANK YOU

to nearly all of my male relatives (one of them posts here regularly) and even a few of my female relatives for their service in the military.

I am one of the very few male relatives in my family who has NOT served in the military...I think that my other relatives know me well enough to know that serving in the military just ain't my thing or my style.

What my relatives might not know is that I do find their willingness to serve to be awe-inspiring, and courageous, esp. as some of those relatives did actually have decent life alternatives to NOT serving.

I can't think of any close family member that has died in service to their country and for that, I am grateful.

I am sure, though, that many of my relatives have mourned the loss of someone that they served with.

So this is really my simple and fairly public way of saying thank you to many in my family for their service; I value their service more than I let on a lot of times.
