Heroes

My wife likes to call my sons and daughter-in-law heroes...
because they served in the armed forces. Jared our youngest re-signed after 911 as a grunt. He chose to redo basic instead of finishing out his time as a diesel mechanic. A minor heroic act to reup at that time. He was shot in the back, with no injury, saved by his body armor. My Dad served in the Big War as an MP and Jason the older stepson served as a sonar tech. I am proud of them all, and more so as I become the sentimental old fart, but they all pale compared to my Uncle Eddie

and he just won't talk much about it.
