Turkey on Tin

In about an hour I’m headed to Ft. Bragg for a meeting about an upcoming program. Anything that gets me to the home of heroes is a good thing.

Before you start celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow remember the thousands of Americans all over the world who’ll be eating their meal on tin plates or out of MRE (Meal Ready to Eat) packets. They won’t be enjoying a peaceful meal, some tag football in the backyard and a lazy nap during the afternoon NFL game. They’ll be standing to post on our behalf.

None of us have the lives we have on our own. Someone, somewhere, some how made our lives possible.

This is the time of year to thank them. Or, to say a little prayer of thankfulness for them.

Have a great, safe Thanksgiving.
