I would like to send out a warm and appreciative thank you to all the Veterans out there. My father, the most influential person in my life, served in the Korean War. I know he saw things that he will never forget. To this day he has never spoke to me about his service over there. He is a deeply religious man and I know that he is scarred by what happened over there. This has not stopped him from being a very successful person, professionally, as a husband and father, and as person in general. My wife also served in the Middle East during the first war in Iraq, she too is scarred, but is one of the strongest women I have ever known. Many of my friends and their family members, and many of my past students, have or are serving in our armed forces and I want to thank them all for what they did or is doing. Thank you Iron Mike, Phil, Rob, Will, Fred, Michael, and the many others too numerous to mention. On this day of remembrance and thanks, I just want to say thank you to all our veterans who have made this the most amazing country in the world. Dad, Beth, and friends, thank you and I love you!
