266 Dad

Each day sometimes runs into the next! I know we have not heard from Zach in a while. It really makes you wonder what they did before the information technology age. Think about it men left for WW II and their families did not see them or talk to them until they returned 3, 4 or 5 years later. Is this way better or worse? We come to expect to hear from him often so we are spoiled. I am a quotes person and this struck me when I read it. I believe it was written of the civil war!

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." John Stuart Mill

How true those words still ring today! You are superman and a man better than most, I love you Zachman! I miss you with all my heart!


  1. this quote says it all, I am always so humbled by people that serve, Zack is my HERO, I love and respect him for protecting me, make no mistake, not many people have stood up to do it, but we all reap the benefits....Thank you Zack!!!!

  2. oops sorry Zach (Zack),I am tired...
