It would be a great wrong for me to allow today to pass without pausing to thank the families (current and past) who have lost loved ones in the defense of our country. 

I seem to have been hit harder and become much more sensitized to the commercialism that today (and this weekend) has been draped with this year for some reason.

To help, I have spent some time over the weekend at the following places on the web using the time I have been granted off from work to consider and reflect what this day means for myself, my family, and my communities.

Thank you for your sacrifices, they are not -- and will not be -- forgotten in our home.

--Claus V.
