Thanks, Troops!

Thanks to our soldiers and their families.

My Dad was a Marine.  As a kid, I took his corporal stripes and had my Mom sew them to my jackets, sweatshirts, and windbreakers.  I mentioned in that blog entry about having the old film converted to DVD.  Watching the DVD, I'm walking around in an LA Dodgers windbreaker, with corporal stripes on the sleeves. 

At one time in my life, I thought looking back on that, that it was pretty silly.  But now?  I think at 11 years old I had the right idea.

Thanks, Dad.  And thanks to all of your friends who stood by your side.
