That boy makes me proud!!
Last weekend my son and I were on our way home from lil road trip. We stopped in at a KFC for a quick bite during a fuel stop. Right before we leave I excused myself to the restroom. Upon my return I see my boy getting up from a different table. This table was occupied by an older gentleman, probably mid 70's with veterans cap on. As I approached the table, the gentleman stands up shake my hand, and thanks me in a crakling voice and abruptly walks away. Obviously, on the way out I asked my son what that was about. He said dad, the man waked in while you were in the restroom and I noticed his hat. I tried to think to myself all the things that the man could have possibly gone through during his time in the military. Through these thoughts I remembered that me and you can eat at KFC, on a road trip, driving a nice vehicle, because of the things that gentleman endured..........so I thanked him and told him why I was thanking him.
Ive never been in the military but I raise my children to be appreciative of the things they have and the reasons they can have them! My son is 14 years old and plans to be a soldier one day.
Thanks to all the men and women, past, present, and future, for your service and my freedoms!
