    .....To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
    Psalm 25:1

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia

    The best portion of a person’s life -- are the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love. ~ William Wordsworth

      A couple uncles of mine. I never knew them, but I still greatly admire them and have the utmost gratitude towards them for their service.
      I'm not a sinner, or preacher, all I have is slight of hand.

        My father and great-uncle who served in WWI in the Army and Navy respectively.
        My father gassed in the trenches in France but lived to come home. My uncle in a ship that was torpedoed but lived to come home.
        Many Aunt's and Uncles who served during WWII.
        My brother in Viet Nam.
        My husband's uncle served with honor and heroism in WWII in Italy. He was wounded more than once and received commendations and decorations for heroism. He was one of the most decent men I have ever known. We all loved you Uncle Tom! You were truly a fine American!
        My husband, his brother and one of my brothers served right after the Korean War ended.
        Three grandsons continue to serve in the Navy, Army and Marine Corps. All were in the Middle East and lived to come home. I type these words with such gratitude.
        All three of my grandsons are fine young men.

        My second daughter is a Director of Nurses in a Veteran's facility.
        She upholds the mission of putting the needs of these veteran's as her top priority.

          My father, a quartermaster lieutenant in the Army during Vietnam.

          My friends from high school who went on to be a PFC in the Army, a chief petty officer in the Navy, and two first lieutenants in the Marines, respectively.

          Also the husbands of two friends from college, a PFC in the Army and a second lieutenant in the Marines.

            11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

              My son still active duty. He did a tour in Afghanistan.
              My husband, who served in the Navy as an electrician aboard surface craft. Today he's a Master electrician. He suffers hearing loss from the noisy ship board engine rooms.
              I too am a Veteran, having served as a Aviation electronics technician repairing the P-3 Orion and the A-6 Intruder Aircraft. My last tour was as a Navy instructor. I like to remember the fellow shipmates that served alongside me.

                      In Australia, the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corp) is such a large part of our National identity.

                      We have ANZAC Day as well as Remembrance Day where we have a 1 minute silence at 11 am on the 11 November each year.

                      Gratitude and pride for our troops is something that flows so naturally, from all Australians. They saved our butts, basically.

                      I also remember my Great Grandfather, a Scottish man who was captured by the Germans after rescuing his Commanding Officer from an ambush.

                        To my dad who served during the Korean and Viet Nam wars. He retired after 26 years of service in the U.S. Navy at the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer (insignia indicated in my avatar).

                        He passed away in November 1997 with full military honors.

                              Glad to hear it Bybee. I love the Navy. I always root for the Navy in the Army-Navy football games.
