The 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month
 
Please take a moment today to remember the men and women that went before you.

For some of our younger members, the above time and date was set as the end of WW 1, and became Armistice Day- later Veteran's Day or Remembrance day. The orange and red paper flowers you will see worn in a buttonhole today represents the poppies that grow on the graves of the soldiers- they have become a symbol of those soldiers.

You know it's been a long time since I have seen a member of the VFW selling poppies. Since I was a kid my mom&dad would always bye from the men that stood out side the PX.

My FIL's post sells them every year.

Lest we forget.

Please remember all of those who have served before and those who are serving now. They have given themselves to honor you, your country, and your freedom.

Thank you, to all the brave men/hero's that gave their lives for our freedom.

Did you know this is the first Veteran's Day without a living survivor from WWI?

JTJ 11-11-2012 02:27 PM

We are rapidly losing the survivors of WW II.

Time marches on, as do our military men and women.

I appreciate and respect each and every one of them for the job they have done or are doing.

GOD bless our troops.
Past, Present and Future.
And of course,
Those troops we don't think of,
Those who serve with us.
Rest in Peace Pop.
And Spook,
and all those who have gone on ahead.
My Dad, WW1

One more item,
While my Dad was in the trenches,
the Germans gassed them.
My Dad almost died from the gas.
Then almost died from pneumonia.
Rest in Peace Dad.
