I'd like to dedicate this post to the Veterans in my family...my father, my son Jason, my daughter-in-law Melanie. My father began his career as a Private in the Army Air Corps, where he learned to fly, and retired from the Air Force as a Lt. Col. He was a Pearl Harbor survivor. My son, also Air Force, has been to conflicts in Bosnia, Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan. My daughter-in-law has been to Iraq. I think that now is a tough time to be a parent of a child in the military, let along being that child. However, what I've learned from my son is that his deployments were always harder on me than they were on him!! Thank you dad, Jason and Melanie. I also want to thank all the Veterans in our country and their parents.
