As Keith reminded me, Veterans Day began as Armistice Day, which we now celebrate in memory of all the veterans, living and dead, men and women, who have served our country so well. Keith himself has lost many friends in the modern wars of our times, and known many who have served overseas. I am grateful that his service fell mostly during peacetime, though he served in Cold War Europe for 3 1/2 years, tasked with guarding nuclear passwords, which is scary enough.
We are grateful to all of you, families included, who live daily without your loved ones who are so far away, and many times in danger. We pray for you daily and nightly, that you will all be reunited and live safely together ever after.
