A Nice Day

My wife and I went to our local Veterans museum yesterday and I have to tell you that for a small town, it is quite an impressive place to visit. It was also very humbling to say the least. I sit here and I think, what did I do today. I had the day off, so I got up late this morning, Made some breakfast, watched some TV, went out and washed my truck. Came in and took a short nap and spent an overall nice day with my wife.

A soldier serving overseas wakes up in the morning and the first thing he thinks is I am going to try and not get killed today or watch a friend die today. I put my wallet in my pants today. A soldier puts on armor and slings a gun over his shoulder.

God forgive me when I bitch about my life. Compared to the brave men and women of our armed forces, I live on easy street. From the bottom of my heart, thank you to each and every one of our Vets....
