I was priviledged to be able to have dinner tonight with a bunch of wounded vets from Iraq. 2 Passenger vans transported them with police escort to a local church for the dinner where we had the flag flying from our ladder truck over the driveway. After spending the time with us for dinner they left for some fun at the local Celtic Festival. Tomorrow they are going to the Pocono's for some paintball.

These are some truely amazing young men. Many amputees and other physical injuries they are recovering from, not to mention the emotional. It was a humbling honor to be able to shake their hands and say thank you. Somehow the pledge of allegiance before dinner meant a little bit more tonight.

This was put together by a local man through the Wounded Warrior Project. http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/ I had never heard of this group before tonight but it appears to be a great organization based on the people I met tonight.

If you are looking for a way to support our Wounded Warriors check out their website.

Doug;

That sounds great, there isn't enough thanks we can pay our veterans.
