This comes at a great time as Veteran's Day is approaching. What a wonderful reminder to pray for those who serve our country and their families.

I did notice you used a question mark at times when it should have been a period.

The ending surprised me. I didn't see it coming at all. It's always nice to have a surprise twist.
This is so poignant. Cody's letter put this reader right into the setting. Very nice work.
Bittersweet ending! The standout sentence for me was the last one of the first paragraph--priceless.
Well done Stan. You've captured a lot of emotion and depth, and you've expressed it with restraint. This gives your entry a strong sense of credibility.
