    Just checked the board, not been feeling that well this week.

    I appreciate your post and am saddened to see you have had no responses. I know alot of folks have been taking some time off for a variety of reasons so I'll try not to read anything into the lack.

    In my former life I was managing editor of a community newspaper. One of the events I chose to cover personally each year was the veterans recognition event. Each division of the military was called forward and the ages spanned according to the war they served in.

    It was so difficult for me to snap pictures since I had tears streaming down my cheeks.

    I dearly wish there would never be need for military actions but at my age I know it won't happen in my lifetime. That said, I will deeply honor those who have served, and their families (who serve in there own way).

    Again, thanks for your post.
