Everyday is Memorial Day for me. Since I live just a short distance from Joint Base Lewis McChord and Madigan medical center; I see the sacrifices that our service people make daily and I read of some that won't be coming home also.   As a drafted Vietnam era  Army veteran my heart bleeds for those who came home with not even a thank you. They were caught just serving their country and trying to survive in a war no one says they supported.
