[The sky was clear and bright, the smoke was thin and blue, I took the day off, I knew just what to do. The ham was cured and seasoned, a batch of wicked beans too].... ...[I put them in the smoker then made a beer run 'cause I knew it would be hours before it was done]..... .. . [The smell of hickory lofted in the air, as I sipped my beer and tended my fire all without care]...... [The hours ticked by as I savored my beer, waiting for that perfect temperature to appear].......[Several hours later I hit that perfect mark and lo and behold what a beautiful bark]....... [As dreams passed through my head of the meal soon to be, I bowed my head and gave thanks for my chance to be free]....[So a happy Veterans Day to all that have served, I hope you all enjoyed the day you all so richly deserve.]...... Jeff ( Jethro ) Letson U.S. Navy, USS Independence, VA-176, 1981 -1984
