"I can remember..." ~ Jane Eyre
Although I celebrate the commencement of summer this weekend along with everyone else, I will take a moment to reflect on those who died protecting and serving this country. I don't support every war in our country's history, but I do support and admire our soldiers. I am thankful that both my grandfathers survived World War II, but I know many of their band of brothers did not.
Tomorrow the USMA will graduate the class of 2006. A year ago, D.R. was graduating, throwing his hat into the air.
38 graduates of West Point have died since we entered Afghanistan and Iraq. I hope and pray each day that the number remains at 38.
Reader, welcome to my life.
