Veterans get old and reflect on their lives.  They harken back to days gone by... when they were in their youth, when they trusted their lives to other young men.  They show a strong love of country and a respect for anyone who fought to preserve the freedoms enjoyed by our citizens.  They are a special breed.  Thanks to all veterans for their service to our country!
