Memorial Day 2012
3 generations of Weil veterans celebrating this day
none of us ever mentioned this till this year when it occurred to me
My Father may not be with us next year and life is uncertain for all of us. It then occurred to me 3 generations of service men and all 3 reenlisted as well. All three of us served as Peace officers [all of these are my choice of words] Darce Weil is still serving as a Colorado Peace Officer.
It makes us each thankful to all the other Americans who have served to protect us and our freedoms
