Before You Give Thanks

It’s right around the corner. I bet you’re planning your shopping. You’re sending out invitations. You’re buying plane tickets. There’s going to be family and friends and turkey and pie and FOOTBALL.

Yeah…you bet.

But before you give thanks, please remember those who are very far from home. With no hope of family reunion. They’re in Iraq, and Afghanistan. Germany, Korea and places you don’t even know about. Go ahead and sit. Eat. Because they have your back.

I remember a Turkey day in Korea, 1980. Here’s to the Lucky Puppies who shared Turkey in Turkey with me, 1989.

Here’s to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines who will be on post when we’ll all sit down to give Thanks.
