Happy Independence Day, Rap.  Hope you can be with those great guys again!

Same to you Famous.

I hope to do it again as well.  You saw the pics, right? 

One of the guys - a Marine Gunnery Sgt.  Has had his back broken three times. He's a 30-year police office and Marine Reserves who did three tours in Iraq. Being retired from the Phoenix PD and the marines... anyway, out of the blue at the end of the weekend he gave me a special Marine shield.. I was blown away when he did it, but he said he so appreciated talking with me that he wanted me to have it..  I found it was best just treating them like a big brother... one of the guys on my boat was an extreme introvert.... but one of the other men works for the VA and found out he had not been hooked up with the VA for any treatment for his shoulder injury or mental evaluations and took all his info so he could work on getting him the help he needs...... I think it is good to do as much of these group things as possible so these men can network, too...

A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

This morning, Fox's Megyn Kelly did a long interview with some of our wounded who are receiving smart homes.   Great segment.  Also fascinating... even their kitchen cabinets slide up and down so they can reach top shelves....  they point out in addition to making their own lives more comfortable, it frees their spouse-caretakers up to actually leave the home to go shopping, run errands, etc., and gives them a sense of normalcy to be able to do things for themselves, like shower, go potty, etc.
