Found in e-mail

I tried copying and pasting this into my journal, and it didn't work.  So I'll link to it.  Helen (Madcobug) sent the words to me after reading my previous entry, about my son  I googled some of the words and found it on a  website, with pictures.  I'm sure many of you have seen it, but with Veteran's Day being tomorrow, it's good to have our memories refreshed.

I have read something like that before...but it still brings tears to my eyes. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I have seen it before, but it was definitely worth a 2nd look.  My son John, the one who is now 21, tried to join the Marine corp when he was 19, but he couldn't because his asthma flared up, and they told him "no go."  He was disappointed as he enlisted with his best friend Chris, who ultimately ended up going to Iraq for a year.  They joined under the buddy system, and would have been together throughout their active duty.  
Chris has since returned home safe and sound... thank God.
