 All Gave Some, and Some Gave All…

 Me and Raphael served together in Iraq.  This is us visiting Arlington National Cemetary where our brothers in arms are buried.

 The graves are all from soldiers of Our generation, not long ago, from some long forgotten war.

Some of them were probably vets who went through our hospital doors, people we weren’t able to save.

    I’ve been to the Arlington Cememtry a few years ago. We took the ROTC cadets. Its a reality to see all those lines and lines of white stones. Too many. A lot with the dates only a couple decades apart. Gives you a new perspective.
