This has very little to do with diabetes but I was watching the news tonite and there was a small group of women cleaning off headstones of fallen and forgotten soldiers in a cemetary in Olympia, WA. They were using buckets of soapy water and brushes and scrubbing away. Also putting ing plants and a flag. I couldn't help but thin how I would really like to get a group of women together next year and do that. I am not sure if I can dco it physically but it would be so nice to put out the effort.

Whenever I see somecone in a soldier uniform, I thank them for serving our country. They usually thank me back. A little politeness goes along way!

I thank the veteran and those in the active military also. In fact when returning from Las Vegas, I thanked a serviceman who was flying somewhere in his "BDUs" (Battle dress Uniform). He shook my hand and gave me a hug.

I have 2 of my 3 sons in the military, one in the active Navy, one in Army reserves, and my middle son just recently mustered out of the Nv Ntl guard. I am proud of them all. You can see a pic of the 4 of us together in 2004 with me with my US flag shirt and them in their uniforms at that time. (youngest was in the jROTC at that time.

I will send them a thank you card online for service to our country tomorrow,

I like your new picture. I did not realize you have 3 sons, all 4 in the service. Thanks for sending them a thank you from me.
