The Vietnam War was arguably the most traumatic experience for the United States in the twentieth century.

Thank You Shopper

Every morning as I talk my walk I pass by this sing and when I read it the first that comes to my mind is to say "Thank you". Then I realize I never shop there to begin with.

Ranch Style House

In the middle of all the new homes there is a small community that has been here for a long time, most of the houses are ranch style and are built on huge lots.
