Veteran’s Day

I’m taking today to say thank you to my Uncle Russell (and all those who have served). My uncle passed away several years ago, so I find this day very emotional.

One of my favorite stories about Uncle Russell was that when he left Viet Nam, he ended up in California. He got his first motorcycle, and drove all the way across the country before calling home. Instead, he just ended up walking into the backdoor of the house where my mom, Grandma Helen and Grandpa Howard were living. 

Thank you.
