It never fails on the Sunday prior to Veterans Day that the chuch I go to asked the Veterans in the congrigation to stand so they could be honored. I served my stint in the Navy so my daughters emplore me to stand. The pew that we sit in places me directly behind a dear elderly man named Charles Menchew, also a vet. He served with Patton, faught during the battle of the bulge and recieved various medals and accomidations. He stands directly in front of me. I stand 6'5 he may stand 6' if his dress shoes have a high enough heel, but to me. I feel about as small as a mouse I'm very proud of my service, I enjoyed my time in the service ... However .... There is no possible reason that I should be honored in the same fashion as that great man standing in the pew in front of me. I don't know what to do in such cases. I honor me service by standing, but seem to be utterly insignificant standing in that situation How do some of you handle this situation?
