Once again it’s time to honor those who are fortunate enough to still be with us and those who have passed or gave their life for their country. Once again I will visit our Veterans MGive Thanksemorial in Danville, Va and the union and confederate cemeteries. I may go to the D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Va for a ceremony.
