We went to Pepperdine University, yesterday for a Veterans recognition dinner event, and then today we went to a Blue Star Plaque unveiling at Miramar National Cemetery . At both events we were allotted the honor of meeting new and interesting people, as well as the opportunity to help shine the light more on the men and women of the military, and those that serve our country. The two events were about 140 miles apart, so we had to do a bunch of driving, and Jason demonstrated that he is, in fact getting stronger, and showed that he was able to deal with it. Don't get me wrong, he was uncomfortable at times, and he was worn out at the end of the day, yet he had a great time and his wounds are still making progress.

Linda and I enjoy doing these things with Jason, as it helps him to get in front of other veterans, and even sometimes in front of Boy Scouts (like today) to show what an Eagle Scout can become and over come (Jason is an Eagle Scout also). We still have a couple more events this month, and also we will be headed to our son, David's place for Thanksgiving. Then in December we have one event to be a part of, and that is a medical conference. That one, I think, is going to be exciting in that we are going to be discussing the healing process, and just what we have gone through, to help them develop new programs to help others, coming behind us.

Otherwise, everyone is doing well, and enjoying as much of life as we possibly can.I was taking a look at some of the statistics provided about this blog, and there have been nearly 195,000 page views since it began, back in 2011. I would never have thought that it would have gotten that much interest, yet there are the numbers. I thank you, all for all the continued support and prayers. I hope that this continues to be enjoyable for everyone. Take care and stay positive.
