When I wrote this, I had no idea that it would be one of the most ‘hit’ articles here. It was picked up by another blog in its entirety. A woman whose uncle was on the plane motivated me to write to Senators John Boehner and George Voinovich, neither of them felt the need to even respond with a form email or anything (thanks for the representation, Gentlemen).
Once again, a huge THANK YOU! to our Veterans. We wouldn’t have the freedoms we do without you brave men and women. Thanks to my Uncles and my Dad. Thanks to my brother, John, who was a Marine. Thanks to my sister-in-law, Constance Dees, and her hubby, Jon, who are both active military, stationed at Fort Bragg, NC. Thanks to Michael Cervantes, who was in Operation Desert Storm. Thanks to John Uptmor, whom I work with, who was in Afghanistan within the last year with the Army. Thanks to Glenn Johnson, who’s on his way to Afghanistan (God watch over you). And please remember our local heroes, Airman 1st Class Eric Barnes, and Army Sgt. Bruce Horner.
