November 13, 2008


I published my previous post and pulled up my blog. Today's date hit me in the gut.

I hate this time of year.

Veterans' Day starts a series of horribly reflective days. And the agonizing part is that I never met any of the men that our post lost in Fallujah. I know what these days in November do to my heart; I can't fathom what they do to the families.

And the 13th is the worst day of all.

All I can say, four years hence, is that I will never forget.
And I will never stop telling Heidi that I haven't forgotten.

I'm sorry, more than I can say.

...and for that reason we can sleep comfortably in our beds tonight knowing that our childrens future is being guarded by men and women who are willing to make the greatest sacrifice for their country. We will never forget.

This day is weighing on my heart, as well......

The only one that I truly knew was Ed Iwan and he was a great guy. I can't believe it's been four years...I think I will always remember them like it was yesterday.

My thoughts last week were the same...
