Thank You for My Freedom, Grandpa

Ray H. Owen US NavyToday is Veterans day and the fact that I have the freedom to basically blog about whatever I want is a result of the Veterans of the US Armed Forces who gave or risked their lives for my freedom and yours.  If you have an opportunity today, thank a Veteran. 

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my Grandfather, Ray H. Owen who was a pilot in World War II for the US Navy.  He is a true American Hero.

I would also like to thank one of my closest friends, Mike Kuta who served in Iraq during Desert Storm. 

Thank you to all of you who have served to protect our freedom!
