Every year we go to the cemetary and place flags on the Veterans of our family. For some reason--through the years---some of the flags go undecorated. I could contact a Veteran's Post to do it, but truthfully I like doing it myself. While we were there this year, 2 men in battle fatigues approached and thanked me for remembering our Veterans. They told me they are brothers---Marines----and come every year to place a flag on the grave of their Dad. And then they quietly sit and have a beer with him!! They thanked me again and I thanked them for serving our country and we went our separate ways-----but that was really a special moment for me.
