This is a picture of my Uncle Dean. I wanted to post it with his story in honor of Memorial Day. He was in the 504th Military Police batallion during Vietnam. With all of the stories going around about our wonderful soldiers coming home crazy, I wanted to share his story. He went to Vietnam at 19, a very shy and withdrawn person. While he was in Vietnam, he saw terrible things happen to his friends and had a very dangerous job. However, despite everything that happened over there, he made it back a more outgoing and happy person. His tour of duty completely changed him for the better. He has made life-long friends from this experience. Thank goodness he came back alive, because he is a most exceptional person!

Here is a link to his 504th MP Batallion website - the pictures are great, and I had to chuckle when I saw the picture of the "business girls" on the street!

I want to make sure that everyone who has or has had someone they love serve in our country's exceptional military...make absolute sure that they know how much we APPRECIATE them and how safe I feel knowing they are looking out for me and my family!

I am so thankful to God for all of our Military heroes who go through so much to save our country. Your Uncle deserves all our thanks.
