Today is Veteran’s Day and the specific day we honor our veterans….although we should honor them at all times, sometimes they are ignored….but that is another post for another time.
The Captain and I went to breakfast this morning at one of our favorite Mom and Pop restaurant…and all the uniforms and veterans of all ages were there enjoying a free breakfast by the owners. It just made my heart swell with pride as I saw some walking with canes and other issues, but there was a certain look on their faces that is not missed….pride in their country.
This past week-end a famous aircraft, a C-47 called the Tico Belle visited the Page Field Airshow here in our neck of the woods. This amazing airplane still flies the skies in honor of the men and women who served in World War II.
The below pic is so special for me…it is Twin #1 who served in the Navy in the Gulf War , honoring his father who also served in the Navy in the Korean War at the gravesite.
So tomorrow….or actually, anytime you see one of our veterans … or if any of your family or friends are veterans, please be sure to remember them on this day of honor…Veterans Day.
Call them up….shake their hand…send them an email….acknowledge them where ever you see them.
And thank them for preserving our freedom.
And always pray for all of them, and for our country and our military leaders.
I would like to take this time to thank a few of my own family members and friends, both past and present who served in our Military.
Thank you Dad, Uncle Carl, Grandpa George, Grandpa Joe, Uncle Joe, Uncle LaVern, Uncle Lyle, B.F, Terry, Larry, Phil, Mike, Robert, Everett, and our younger generation…Stacy, Tracy, Phil, Jr. and Anthony….and a special thank you to my Captain!
God Bless America!
Hugs to all.
