Memorial Day

Sometimes it sneaks up on you...

Yesterday watching the Nascar race they did the Memorial Day traditions. Shot off the volley of three, played Taps, had a moment of silence. And I started to cry. I was right back at Jack's service hearing Taps being played for him. It took me by surprise. But I guess it shouldn't really. Gone but never forgotten...

So today in honor of Memorial Day, in honor of those that have served, in honor of those that continue to serve and especially in honor of Jack I am reposting my series about Jack's service.

I just re-read it all myself, a word of advice, grab a tissue.

Part One The Background

Part Two September 2, 2007
