Please say a prayer for Lynda and Craig Brady.  At last count, they have "fostered" 40 cadets at West Point, and counting.  She took care of the cadets who founded "Team Red White and Blue."  Neither Lynda nor Craig ever served, but they live just south of the cantonment area at West Point, and they treated me like a hybrid brother/son when I was 19 until I graduated at 21.  I was "number 2" of the 40, and was responsible for them getting in touch with cadets 3 through 40.  Yesterday, Flag Day, she went to the West Point cemetery, and laid flowers on every grave of every classmate of every one of the cadets they have ever taken into their home, from the class of 1991 through the class of 2014.  She's not sick (though she has suffered through Lyme disease and has hearing loss and back pain as a result), but she is the type of patriot we need more of.
Although personally I am quite content with existing explosives, I feel we must not stand in the path of improvement. -Winston Churchill

Prayers sent... Thank God for such Patriots...
