Arkansas' Fallen Hero display came through the area around Christmas time. Somber and sad, the vast number of flags and accompanying photos stood straight and tall against the stiff wind. They stood strong.
"Thank you for what you do, Soldier," is what I say to every one I meet, every day. Those of us that have never served can never fully understand the soldier's experience. "Thank you" never seems to dent the surface of gratitude owed them. A day here and there, set aside to honor our Soldiers, is not enough. Every day is not enough, but it will have to do.
Thank you for what you do, Soldier.
