Tonight was the welcome dinner for the Patriot Cup. The past couple of years we have attended this tournament in Tulsa, OK in support of the Folds Of Honor foundation, which supports wounded or killed in action veteran’s families through scholarships. After the dinner, they held a US flag retirement ceremony, which was the first I had ever seen. It was a beautiful ceremony to set the tone of the weekend, which is to remember those who are no longer with us.
I think it is beautiful to remember and compare those who are gone right next to experiencing the innocence of young life. Today, Sky got to swim in a pool for the very first time. Although he is too young to remember it, his being here is a true testament that young and old, despite the conflict, the US supports it’s troops!
