11-11-11 Veteran's Day

To all Veterans, and all their families, the sacrifice of your time and your lives, cannot ever be summed up in any one day, any memorial, or any paltry thanks your country and its citizens could ever offer.

This photo by Aaron Thompson of the Daily News Journal, taken in April 2007 of 8 year old Christian Golcznski accepting the flag from his father, Marc's, casket comes closest. 

His dad was two weeks short of finishing his second tour in Iraq and wrote, only weeks prior to his death on March 27, "we fight and sometimes die so that our families don't have to."

Marc was 30.

To every Veteran has put his life on the line at some point -- thank you.
