Thinking of all the veterans I have met and thanking God he brought each of you home and into my life.

 

God bless all of you!

Indeed. I am very glad to have met them, and for some, twice. It is a blessing!

And to have met you. While my messages always emphasize WWII vets, they include ALL of you, including you, Todd!

I will be at Royal Air Force Blake Hill Farm here in Wiltshire on Sunday as usual. This long gone RAF station was used for the D-Day landings and ceased to exist many years ago. I will be honouring all the British, Canadian and United States forces that flew from this airfield in C47's and gliders.

Thanks Marion. I guess sometimes I have a tendency to look backwards (as opposed to thinking of myself as a veteran) at this time since I live amongst and work with servicemen everyday so it's just "another day at the office" for me. I think it's like that with most folks I know. Anyway, thanks much!
