Thank you to Veterans - Blanket of security

"I have slept under a blanket of security in America,
A quilt made of patches of young men who grew up too fast
And many who died far, far too early,
Sewn with stitches and sutures and bloody gauze."   
I have never contributed to this blanket. 
Not a patch. Not a wound. Not a stitch.

Every night I pull up this security blanket and tuck in my three kids,
because men and women leave their families for years at a time.

If I said thank you everyday for the rest of my days, 
It would never be enough.

But, To all Veterans and their families.....

Thank you,

David B. Peel
