In honor of Donald Schrader, US Army - Served in the Korean War
(Submitted November 11, 2008 by Denise Anderson)

Today, Nov. 11th is my father's birthday - he will be 81.  Dad just recently gave me his original tin covered Bible that he was issued in 1951 as he entered the Korean War.  He carried it with him and speaks of stories where it saved soldiers lives by taking bullets meant for them. I now carry it with pride as a reminder of the many sacrifices and extreme courage that all our Veterans must give for our country to remain free.  In appreciation and gratitude, thank you Vets and thank you Dad.  I love you.
