    That is a lot of sacrifice from one family.

    I've read that many times in the past and it always ( even this time ) brings tears to my eyes. Thanks for the reminder.

    Thanks for the post...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Having a little with watering eyes also. I don't remember reading this before now. Fact or fiction, it's a very moving story. God bless all who serve, and gave.
