Thank You to our Troops

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who served!!

Here are a few of the Veterans in my family...

This is my dad (seen in the center with the navy cap) and his brothers, Glen and Paul. He served on the USS Breckenridge (a troop carrier) as a machinist mate during the Korean War...

Oh, in case you are wondering, I tried to enlist during the first Gulf War, but I was 30 pounds overweight. So, in a matter of just under two months, I lost the 30 pounds and went in for my physical, but was not allowed to join because I was taking medication for high blood pressure.
