    Default Veterans Day

    Ninety six years ago today at 11 a.m. local time, WWI, the war to end all wars finally ended. We call this day Veterans Day to celebrate and thank all the young men and women who have served our nation in times of peace and at times of war. If you know a vet, tell him thanks. Regardless of how you feel about the mission they are called to, they put themselves in a position that if called upon, to lay it all on the line to keep you sitting at your key board bitching about this or that.

    To all my Coasties, Airmen, Squids, Jarheads, and Grunt brothers and sisters in arms, De Oppresso Liber.

    I already have plans to call my Pops to thank him for his service in the ETO, WWII.

    And to all who are serving and who have in the past, a very heart-felt THANK YOU!

    Edit: Pops was thankful for my sentiment when I thanked him, but reiterated that he still does not want to speak of that time in his life, so I let it go at that and just said "Thank You."

    To all vets including my 3 deceased uncles who served in WWII, one had Destroyer USS Mahan shot out from under him twice, one served USS Army and the 3rd who served with Seabees and helped build a landing field on one of the islands.
    Bless you all brave men and women.

    Thank you for your service veterans. Hopefully, you spent this often sad day well.
