Today is National Purple Heart Day. I found this one in an old trunk from my parents. I actually think it may belong to my great grandfather who was in WW1. It was there with other ribbons from battles in that war and a couple of German ribbons and medals I guess he acquired.
I have much respect for our military servicemen and women. And to all their families who have to make sacrifices along with way when apart. Also to those who return with the emotional scars from the trauma of conflict.
You don’t have to wait for a day to thank a service member. Make it a habit when you see a uniform or veterans.
Random Thoughts of the Day
- Its both what you do and what you say that is important. And if they don’t match you have issues.
- I sense a relaxing weekend ahead.
- Respect for my children grows constantly. I’m a lucky father.
- The second day this week being caught in brutal weather while driving. Hopefully, I’m done with that streak for the week.
