I believe the war in Iraq was a misguided attempt on Dubya's part to complete something Daddy couldn't do: get rid of Saddam Hussein. I believe we stopped the War on Terror to launch the War on WMDs. I also believe that we should be fighting in Afghanistan to bring Osama bin Laden to justice for the 9/11 attacks. So, on this Veterans Day, I would like to honor a few of my heroes.

This is a picture of my cousin Gary and his unit in Afghanistan in 2002-2003. Gary retired from the Army shortly after returning home. A couple of his buddies took a second tour and gave their lives in Afghanistan. Take a few moments today to thank a veteran.

Gary was recently invited to speak at his high school homecoming, where he told a few funny war stories, or as I like to call them "Kung Fu River stories (He alwasy starts off a story session by saying, "There I was, going up the Kung Fu river knee deep in hand grenade pins.") In a speech that was both funny and moving, Gary spoke about his experience in Afghanistan, and the loss of his brothers there.

Thanks, T! I'm proud of you!
