This has not been an easy week. I’m mentally, emotionally, and physically drained. I’m not looking forward to today because it will be mentally, emotionally, and physically draining. But! Today I’m thankful for the fast and easy work of the Patriot Guard who are coming to honor my extra Dad. I’m so glad Jan mentioned it to me, and I’m so glad the Guard said yes. My extra Dad went to war, faced angry protesters when he came back, and went on with his life. I remember him commenting once that WWII Vets always got accolades, but Vietnam Vets didn’t, and that he didn’t get that or think that it was right. Not for himself, but for all of the boys who went over there.
Today, I get to be involved in doing my little part of seeing a Vietnam veteran honored.
