A common thread

It’s now been four weeks since our start at Brize Norton on April 16, and I was struck yesterday by a common thread that runs throughout the fabric of American and British society, and that is how the military forces are a common touchstone for so many.  It started with the first Remembrance Ceremony at Brize Norton on that April morning:Image

And it has continued throughout the country, being hosted by the Disable American Veterans in Longview/Kelso,Image

For me it means that as long as we remember, recognise, and rejoice with our Armed Forces as they seek to protect the freedoms and ways of life that we enjoy, we will continue to enjoy the blessings of liberty that they have helped to secure for us.

Really looking forward to going across Nebraska and visiting folks in this wonderful state.
