Veterans here and Abroad: Happy Veterans Day this weekend!

Google did the pictures

Veterans Here and Abroad: Happy Veterans Day this weekend!

I remember when my children were younger, they used to go to help the Boy Scouts leader put up small American flags in the cemetary; honoring vets who gave their all for this country. I remember the look on my boys' faces as they contemplated the devotion and sheer grit that these people demonstrated in the batttles that they were in; and they were , of course, in different divisions; the Air Force, the Navy , the Marines, the Coast Guard, or the Army! "Wow Mom!"

They were astonished and thrilled to see this dedication; and yet, they were moved by the sacrifices made by these men and women.

If you are a Veteran, Happy Veterans' Day! And we admire you for all that you have done!(You too WfhBear!)

Please leave comments for our veterans!

Hey Nat- I'm so grateful for all the men and wonmen who have served this country.  In Canada, we have Rememberance Day- I always remember wearing the poppy- but I was a lot older when I really realized what it was for.  I've  had the privilage to know a few vets personally and through J land, and I am so proud and grateful for them all!  Please go by and thank Bill (wfnbear) and Sam (samsays)- sorry, there's links for them both on  also Christy's Thoughts- her husband is a soldier.  Thanks Nat, and thank you vets and those serving now!  Carolyn

You left out our smallest , military force, the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard is 8 years older than our Navy which was disbanded after the Revolution. Since 1790 the US Coast Guard has participated in all our Country's battles. Thanks for the Veterans Day Greeting. Regards, Bill.
