A Tribute

To those who have served...remember the brave, courageous people who fight to keep our freedom. Here are two close to my heart.

First, Joel Wiebe who served in the Canadian Army. He and my Anna were married before he went off on his first tour. He died in Afghanistan in 2007. He and Anna visited us in 2005 and toured Gettysburg. Here's a picture Jack took of him at the Visitor's Center. I often look at those pictures and remember what a fine young man he was.

Second, my dad who served in the US Army in WWII. My dad has given me many gifts--the love of books and classical music, a good joke, and discussions from the heart. Here's to you, Dad. I love you.
