A huge thank you to those that have served in our military and those still serving. You have all done a job I could never do and you are what makes our country so great. My heart goes out to those who gave all and to their families that have to go on without them.

Thanks to all the Vets and their Families, I feel so damn lucky to have been born here instead of just about anywhere else in this world! My 21 seem less than a show of dedication than just my able contribution. I never got shot at or shot at anyone else, those that serve in our wars risk and often give all for the promise of nothing but a future for their Children, Sister or Cousin.
I pray one day all of our Service Members Will come home to the land they love for good! That way all could appreciate this day equally! Our Brothers and Sisters in Afghanistan and other foul places deserve to come home now.
When I was a kid it was called Armistice Day. An annual remembrance of 1100 hours, 11th month, 11th day of 1918. The end of WWI.
Now in the USA it is called Veteran's Day.
