  • Special thanks to my dad E3 Private First class #Army vet and my girls father for serving & my son's dad for serving in the army as well. 
I'm sure if my life were different, I would have definitely joined the military as well.

  • After the Deupree house #veteransday Big Band program, we had a chat.

My grandfather, for 74 years, has had survivors guilt. It doesn’t affect him every day, but every year on Veteran’s Day he’s reminded of it, & this year in particular he was quite emotional. Mostly due to a cartoon by #lynnjohnston in the paper, he said, “I’ve never had such a direct reminder as this one, & it just really got to me.“ He cut it out to show us & tried to stifle a heaving breath as he wiped his eyes. “Most infantrymen, we knew when we went over, we went on a one way ticket, and if it didn’t work out that way, it was meant to be. It started on January 19th of 1945 when we attacked Sessenheim, that’s my Dad & Mother’s birthday, both of them that day, & I said a prayer that morning, that God certainly wouldn’t let anything happen to me on that day, cause it would hurt them. And, for some reason, out of a company of roughly 100 infantrymen, only 35 of us were walking by that night. And we didn’t know what happened to the rest of them. We didn’t know if they were captured, killed or...but that feeling is still there. I came home, and there were hundreds of others that didn’t. And all of us, really, had the same contract. Why me?”.
I don’t think it’s any coincidence I was pondering my own “potential” so heavily yesterday. It’s days like today, when I hear my 95 yr old WWII Purple Heart Veteran grandfather talk about his survivors guilt, that I know why sometimes my heart rests so heavy. It’s because I know what my family, my grandfather, has gone through for me to be here. I will never understand it, or hopefully experience it, but I am eternally, gratefully, and respectfully reminded of it on days like today, the miracle that truly is - life. Of me being here. Of God granting this path forward for only so few, so that they may go on to live long, enriching, fulfilled lives, out of respect for the ones who have fallen. That’s what I reminded my grandfather - that’s all he can do, and has done so well.
May we all never fail to remember the responsibility of this gift we’ve been given, to live fully & freely, out of respect to the ones whose tickets were only one way. #thankaveteran After the Deupree house #veteransday Big Band program, we had a chat.
