Happy Memorial Day!!! It is a great day to be an American.Remembering those heroes that have sacrificed for all of us.Before being in the Army,my understanding and respect for this great day was under par.As I trained and served in the service, the pride and understanding of those that blazed a trail for me and every other troop grew.From those that worked in the kitchen all the way to those on the front line .The love and admiration to those that paid the ultimate sacrifice.Due to many of the medical issues that are affecting me today, I was not a great soldier.But, I volunteered and served my time the best I could for what I have to deal with day to day.Many people that would have been better soldiers did not decide to serve time in the service.
The day began for me at 9 am. Still hot from having no air conditioning it was surprising that the bed was not more covered in sweat then it was in the morning.It was not a comfortable temperature but after many showers my body must have gotten more accustom to being hot.My friend Mark stopped over to check the air conditioning around 1pm. He came to the conclusion that it needed a new blower motor. Then he told me that he would grab me one on Tuesday from work and put it in that night.I can just pay him whatever the part costs.Well even though it is needed like a hole in the head to spend money , I cannot live in south Florida without AC for more then a couple of days.I really appreciate Mark taking time away from his family on a holiday weekend.I offered money, lunch or at least something but he rejected them all.He knows that my budget is tight and really made me feel great about how people can make a difference in other peoples lives.Thank You Mark!!!
