All that aside, allow me to join the chorus of folks saying that while you're enjoying your day, be it beach, barbecue, pool or whatever, take a moment to remember and thank those who have given their all in service to us. Some don't get the chance to have that cookout, or be with their loved ones.
Yeah, I've run this picture lots of times, and it still gets to me. The story:
In a final act of loyalty, Hawkeye, the dog of slain Navy SEAL U.S. Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Jon T. Tumilson walked up to his fallen master’s casket during the funeral in Rockford, Iowa, and then laid mournfully down beside the body for the rest of the proceedings [Note: Petty Officer Tumilson was one of the 30 killed in Afghanistan in the shoot ing down of Extortion 17 which the families blamed squarely on the Obama administration - SiG]Far too large a portion of the deep state could use Hawkeye's loyalty.
