A Personal Connection

heroIn loving memory of my own personal hero, and his comrades, and one of my favorite lines,        [Click the picture for larger inage.]

"They go to war, these young men, not to die for their country, but to place themselves, their precious lives, between their homes and loved ones and the forces of destruction."

Kenneth Roberts, Rebels in Arms (The American Revolution)

That picture - and the quote which is so true) - brought tears to my eyes. Thanks, Uncle Bill for posting it.

And to everyone who has answered the call of duty in service of others and their country in time of war and peace.
