Red Skelton was a comic (and many youngsters won’t even know who he is) in our parents’ day. I remember him, too but he was really old when I was a kid.
Regardless, if this doesn’t bring a tear to your eye or make you think about how fortunate we are to be Americans, well … have a listen!
On this Veteran’s Day 2011 (11-11-11), I thank all of the Veterans and those still serving in our military for their service. It’s by their generosity and bravery that we all can still pledge our allegiance to the American flag.
A special “shout out” to my father in heaven. Thanks, Dad, for your service. You never ate another hot dog after being aboard your ships and you returned hating monkeys – the one you had on board was smelly and messy as I can recall the story. I love you and miss you every day.
God bless the United States of America and those who serve her.
