Veterans Day 2010


My area Rotary Club District puts on a Military Appreciation Day luncheon every year and brings in a speaker to talk. This year it was Lt. Gen. John F. Kelly. That was on November 1st. This past Tuesday, his son, Second Lt. Robert M. Kelly was killed after he was struck by an improvised explosive device while on a foot patrol in Afghanistan.

Please make sure you thank a vet or service man every time you see one. They sacrifice so much for us and some pay the ultimate price with their life.

Love being a Rotarian. Became a Paul Harris fellow a few months back as a gift from my club. I am very active.
