Veterans Day 09

In my family, we have several veterans. On Memorial Day, I mentioned my brother who is in the Army Reserve. Today I thought I would mention my Uncle Jim, who flew F-4's in Vietnam.

Going to school in Maryland, I was very close to the Washington DC museums - a favorite being the Air and Space museum. Towards the end of my undgrad, the museum opened an annex at Dulles airport - the Udvar-Hazy Center. In 2004 I toured the museum and took my picture with an F-4 they had on display (knowing my uncle flew them).

Today on Veterans Day, I want to say thanks to all the people that make the commitment to serve our country at home and abroad.
