Those who fought in all our wars,
This Day given them.
Today is Veteran's Day. It's the day we remember all those who served in our military - during War, during Peace, at home and in lands far away. It's the day I say a prayer for my friend Gordon M. Briggs, who, on a warm Spring day in 1966, was shot by a sniper while on an operation in Quang Tri Province. I couldn't believe he was dead. He looked like he was sleeping. It's an image I've never managed to forget.
