   A tour of Washington DC has been arranged for many of our local World War II veterans. They have a rousing start to the trip, drive through the streets of town being cheered for, and eventually travel on to Washington DC to meet others and travel to different sites. Yesterday, the tour started, and I was one of several standing on a street corner waving and cheering.

   I love how these men and women are being remembered for their service. The war is long over, something of which I am grateful. But, it is important to remember the service of those who have sacrificed their time, energy, and lives for us. Thank you for serving.
