I salute.

I salute my father for serving in the Marines in WW2. I salute my uncle, Army,POW and Purple Heart, for serving in WW2.  I salute another uncle,Air Force, for serving 30 years, 3 wars. He received numerous awards and several Purple Hearts. I salute Pat's father and 2 uncles, Navy, all POW's, WW2. I salute Pat, Army, Vietnam. I salute all the men and women that have served in our Armed Forces.

Some people may note that I did not say I salute the men and women serving now. There is a reason. This is Veteran's Day. It is a day to honor those that have served.


  1. My dad is a vet too but Im kind of tired of stores taking advantage of it  I think though that ONLY veterans should be paid for the day off. I find it amazing that banks close and city offices adn to tell you the truth most verterans are not working there. I personally think that you should only have the day off IF you are a veteran. My dad was a truck driver and never had hte day off. AND if you wnat ot know something funny he at 70 works in a retirement center and is not getting the day off!!!!!!!! I think we need to prioritize to truely celebrate it. how bout walmrt and other stores pitching in giving htem 20 % off any purchase that day. !!!!!!!!!! If your a veteran. Not a big sale to make money for them and everyone else get a deal. How bout ONLY celebrating them!!!!!! I just feel sometimes we got it all wrong. its really thier day.

  2. May their sacrifices never be forgotten.

  3. May God bless the men you remmber today.

  4. And I salute them as well. : )

  5. I was lucky enough to be with my father on VBetran's Day, so I could thank him in person. As a country we have had many more "war heros" than any book could tell. Margo
