Today we went to Jefferson Barracks Park - St. Louis, MO.
We sat on a bench overlooking the Mississippi River and ate our lunch.
We met 3 wonderful Veterans who were at the Battle of the Bulge Monument
that is located by this beautiful overlook of the river.
We listened to many interesting stories from them about their time in the war,
and thanked them for their service.
As is with every Veteran we seem to meet - we also discussed many other topics -
asking them many questions about life, how they have endured many hardships,
and still came through emotionally and have such a zest for everyday things..
We paused for a moment of prayer for all the families of Virginia Tech -
noting the flags in the park at the Battle of the Bulge monument were half mast
in mourning for them.
This gallery is for all at Virginia Tech who are going through hard times, sadness, or emotional duress.
You are forever changed, but know many have you in our thoughts and prayers,
and we hope for comfort and peace in your heart in the days ahead..
Mike and Debbie Henderson, Mike Amelung and
The Veterans of WWII - Battle of the Bulge,
And Veterans of the 87th Infantry Division
April - 2007
