Indeed, although I am a day late.  My wife's dad lost his legs in WWII, but went on to have a reasonably fulfilling life (such as one could have in the Ukraine of the USSR) afterwards.  The government gave him a car with hand controls.  To this day wife would prefer a car with all hand controls, as she drove him around in it more than he drove it himself.

I never forget. I'm at the LA Veterans Cemetery when they open the gates every MEMORIAL DAY. In to visit Grandfather and 2nd Brother. I'm gone in 30 minutes. Long before most folks show up.

Hate the Ceremony. Need just a few minutes to pay My Respects.

I also drool in my sleep. I firmly believe that true happiness is a warm gun. Did I mention how much I HATE auto-correct on this blasted tablet.

I raise my flag 1st thing in the morning and then attend the local annual ceremony here at the cemetery.  It's good to pay respects to all the fallen friends and comrades I have known and to those who have served and "gave all" previously and after.  I also walk around the veterans portion of the cemetery and observe the grave markers of the veterans interred there. Many, if not most, have no one left, at least locally, to let them know they are remembered.......I give them a pause, a nod and sometimes a salute.........later, in the evening, I pour a small shot of good whiskey and toast "fallen comrades"......lest we forget........
