Thank You Veterans



We honor all our service men and women today. Thank you!

In Mattie's Choice, Mattie and her family remember WWI and fear WWII. 
Since those days, other wars have happened.

Korea.
Vietnam
Afghanistan
Iraq.
Gulf Wars.

The statement, "War is hell," described it well, but still the words are inadequate.

The United States has been involved in several conflicts. Before and since Mattie's day.
 Wikipedia has a list.


The sacrifices.
Lives.
Families.
Countries.
Destruction.



Mr. Tom Moore

I'm thankful for all our veterans, 
but two have a special place in my heart.

I especially thank Mr. Tom Moore. 
A WWII Veteran who was a POW in Germany. 
He left us this past year.


And my dad.
Edward Earl Morton.
He also left us too soon.
