Veterans Day

"All gave some.....some gave all."
Winston Churchill
When our son Alex  graduated High School he felt a strong sense of duty to his country and joined the Army for 4 years.  Upon his return he attended Missouri State University and also joined the Missouri National Guard.  The 1140th Engineers Battalion was called to duty and Alex spent 13 months in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom.  Thankfully, they all returned safely.  He is again attending  Missouri State University working on his degree in Computer Science. We are proud of you Alex. 

 Thanks to all veterans!!!

"Patriotism....is not the short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the 
tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime."
Adlai Stevenson
