I’m especially proud of my family, the McKain’s, for their sacrifices and dedication to the armed services of our country. I simply can’t imagine how my Grandmother felt to have her sons — Dean, Roland, Richard, Dallas, Max, Roscoe, Otis, Jack and Johnny, as well as a daughter-in-law (who served as a registered nurse) — in places such as North Africa, Korea, Sicily and so many other areas so far from home. And I’m proud of other family members for their service as well — that pesky neighbor tops the list. So here’s to Carl McKain… thanks for your service!
In times of peace, we sometimes forget those who have given so much. Wouldn’t it be awesome if today, we would all take a moment to personally thank those we know that have served, or are serving, our country? We have plenty men and women Veterans right here in the Ville.
