Flag Over the Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor

Flag flying over the USS Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor

I wanted to take a moment to thank the heroes in my life.

My husband, who served in the Navy.

My niece Pam, who is active duty Air Force.

My brother Jim and my father, both Army.

My friend Lonnie, a Vietnam veteran, and his hero dog Gander.

I recently had the opportunity to tour the prosthetics lab at the Naval Hospital here in San Diego. It was a sobering experience to see first hand so many military personnel who have lost limbs, many of whom want to get back to active duty.

And I know that members of Team Rubicon, nearly all of whom are veterans, just deployed to Oklahoma to help the devastation there.

Thank you all.
