Thank you, veteransMilitary — By Rachel Motte on November 11, 2008 at 2:34 pm
Thank you to all of our readers here who are veterans. I appreciate the work you have done and the sacrifices you have made for the rest of us.
Thank you to my brother-in-law John, who ships out to Iraq for the first time in just a few days. Thank you also to my other brother-in-law, Joey.
Today I am thankful especially for the service of a very dear childhood friend, Lcpl Darin Thomas Settle. He died in Iraq 2 ½ years ago.
Thank you, veterans, for allowing us to honor you. It is good for us to remember your service, and you do us a great service by permitting us to do so.
