On this Veterans Day we remember that freedom is never free. I wanted to pause to give thanks to all that gave some and the some that gave all to keep our country free from tyranny and oppression.
Also, let’s not forget that November 10th marked the 237th birthday of the US Marine Corps. A special note of thanks to my in-laws Inger and the late Jesse Baird who were both Captains in the Marine Corps. This is a special time of year because tomorrow we also celebrate my late father’s birthday. He was a Captain in the Webservices-Seattle US Army during the Vietnam era and would have been 68.
