Not my job to do the work for the
rest of the Nation.  But if not I,
then whom?  Who will remember
sacrifices, paid?  Who will thank
them for their service?  Who will
welcome them home with a hug,
one long overdue?  I will.  No pay,
and the hours are long, but that's
okay:  my honor.  My reward is 
watching their eyes well up with
tears, seeing their faces light up,
one Veteran at a time.  Least I
can do for what they've given me.

(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (11/7)

I will remember brave sacrifices made by our heroes and heroines. I have to; have no choice, not with the military history that's represented in our family! And I am honored and feel it is my patriotic duty to remember ALL who served, especially you, our daddy, his four brothers, our mom's surviving brother, and cousins! And our brother! SALUTE! Heart tugging poem and I LOVE the picture!!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :D
