I know this is weeks late… I mean, WEEKS late but whatever who really cares. I took the photos I just never uploaded them. This was the week of Veteran’s Day, a time to reflect on the men and women that serve to protect our country, our way of life and our very lives. People that give all of their time and effort into defending what we believe in and the livelihood of our families. It takes a lot of what I call guts to do this and I’m very proud of those I know who serve in the various branches of military. This just so happens to be a close friend of mine, Lance Corporal Schumacher, whom I call Kenton or Ken-Ken depending on my mood (or sobriety). He is scheduled to deploy pretty soon and I’m gonna miss him but I’m also pretty proud to have him call me his friend (and let me try on his hats), it’s pretty cool.
I think it’s important to look back and salute those who have fought and even died for what we have today and I don’t think it’s something that should be taken for granted, ever. These people have my respect and I will always support the men and women giving their lives and efforts to whatever the Capital asks for (even if it seems justified or not). You don’t have to support those decisions to support the real life people out there…..
well before this gets political and whatnot, I’ll leave with this photo of Kenton looking back on past military men and women who defended this country.
