My Flag

Monday, 30-May-2016 - Veghel - It's raining and thundering outside.  They're throwing strikes up there--the loud, scary, startling lightning explosions coming close, sometimes right above me.  It's Memorial Day in the United States and for Americans all around the world--we remember and honor all Americans who died while in military service to their country.  We thank all those who have served, and all those still serving.  In a month, we'll have 300 war refugees staying at the old hospital here in Veghel--an emergency shelter in a safe, peaceful, free country.  On Memorial Day, I can only feel pride to have served my country to help keep it, and the countries of its allies, free and peaceful.  This is my flag. pics (17)
