Veterans' Day 2006: Honoring those who served and those who continue to serve

Tomorrow, we'll be celebrating Veterans' Day in the United States ... It is a day during which we honor those brave men and women who served (and continue to serve) our country in the Armed Services in both times of peace and times of conflict. Not to be confused with Memorial Day when we celebrate the contributions of military people who died during or after serving our country, Veterans' Day is when we show our appreciation to those service people who are still living.

Our very own grandpa was a chief petty officer in the United States Navy and served during the Viet Nam Era as a gunfire control technician. He retired in 1982 with twenty-five years of service. Our Uncle Frank and Uncle Rich (who died last week) served in the US Navy, too. We'll be sure to remember Uncle Rich on Memorial Day.

Be sure to remember our service people not only stateside, but also serving our interests in the Persian Gulf, Asia, Europe, and elsewhere around the globe. Their selfless dedication to keeping us safe and protecting democracy allows us to have this federal "holiday" that many take for granted. Say a little purr-rayer today for their safety and a little purr-rayer of thanks for the freedoms that we enjoy.

Happy Veterans' Day, effurry-one ... God bless our service people and God Bless America!
