Veterans' Day 2008


It's the eleventh month an' the eleventh day ... so at the eleventh hour, we'll be honoring America's veterans for Veterans' Day.

In other countries, this day is called Rememberance Day ...

We really liked this graphic that came as part of an email from Miles Kimball catalog merchandising ... so we co-opted it for posting today on our bloggie.  We hope that the legal folks at Miles Kimball don't sue us ...

We are honoring our grandad who served in Viet Nam along with his brothers (our Uncle Frank an' Uncle Lou), family friend Al W., Dennis (who's in the Coast Guard Reserves), an' Mom's next-door colleague who was in the Marine Corps during the end of Viet Nam.

Our service people are a dedicated lot who truly know the meaning of "brave," "hero," "honor," "sacrifice," "country," and "freedom."  Without their efforts, we wouldn't enjoy the freedoms that we do today.

Hats off to them ... and our sincerest thanks for all they have done in the service of our country.  Freedom isn't free ...

My grandpa was in Vietnam too. All veterans deserve to be honoured.

We had a nice ceremony locally. We -- well, we weren't invited, but Jan attended and said it was very nice. We owe our veterans a great debt.
