While working a shift at the Lambert USO this past Friday night, I spoke with a Marine who missed his connecting flight on the way to his home in Florida. It wasn’t just any missed flight. It was a flight to get married the next day. He had to call his fiancé to break the bad news. He wouldn’t be there in time to greet the 250 invited guests. That’s the life of a military family.The men and women of our military would tell you that they’re just doing their job. I think it’s much more than that. One only needs to visit Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery for proof.
