But maybe we could take a minute today, to stop and reflect. To honor. To say thanks.
I have a couple veterans I'd like to honor.
To my father, Frank Masterson, who served our country in the U.S. Army during World War II.
Thanks also to my uncles - George Masterson, U.S. Army, WW II; Leslie Masterson, U.S. Army, WW II; and William Masterson, U.S. Army, Korea.
Thank you to my brother, Frank L. Masterson, who served our country in the U.S. Army in Viet Nam.
Thank you, Frank.
And may we never again treat our returning servicemen and women as so many of you were treated when you came home.
Thank you to my husband, Stan Leszczuk, who served our country in the U.S. Air Force for twenty years.
You made me proud to be an Air Force wife.
Thank you to all those men and women who stepped up when their country called, ready to give whatever was needed - up to and including their life.
Please, take a moment today and thank a veteran.
Groaner of the Day: A Grandmother was surprised by her 7 year old grandson one morning when he had made her coffee.
She drank what was the worst cup of coffee in her life. When she got to the bottom there were three of those little green army men in the cup. She said, "Honey, what are the army men doing in my coffee?"
Her grandson said, "Grandma, it says on TV-'The best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup!'"
