Friday Top 5

It's Veteran's Day. Although it's a federal holiday, most of us don't have it off work anymore (myself included). But I still recommend taking a few minutes to think about and thank any veterans you know. So thanks to...
  • My (deceased) paternal grandfather, who served in the South Pacific in WWII.
  • My mom's middle brother, who served as an Army nurse in Viet Nam.
  • My best friend from grad school, who was one of the first wave of Green Berets to go into Afghanistan.
  • My swing dancing buddy, Cameron, who's been all over, including several stints in Iraq.
  • My mom's youngest brother, who, although he served during peace time, served voluntarily.
If you have the chance, hug a veteran today!
