Veterans Day


Do You Know This Man?

I do not know this man. I found his picture when looking for material for this post. Funny thing is I know all about him. He is an American veteran. This man knows all about courage and sacrifice. Proud yet humble, he put it all on the line and was willing to pay the ultimate price for the freedoms that you and I enjoy today.

Volunteer or drafted bears no relevance to the fact that he answered his call to duty. He and the thousands before him and after him are why America was and is still the greatest nation on the earth. American servicemen have a long and proud history of giving so much for so many and have done so willingly and at great personal cost.

To this man that I do not know I say thank you. Thank you to you and all your brethren in service to our country. Happy Veterans day! That includes you too Dad.

*sniffle* I love that generation!!!

One of my favorite neighbors, is a WW2 vet. His body is failing him, but his mind is as sharp as a tack! He has done EVERYTHING, and simply fascinates me with his stories! He's taking a bee keeping class with me in Jan. :) He was so excited to discover that I was into bees, and gave me an old bee keeping book of his from the 1950's, in which he had kept a diary of sorts of his adventures with bee keeping. ;) I gave him a few Robert Spencer books, and helped open his eyes to islam. Gawd, I love this guy!!! We talk politics, and he recently discovered blogs, like yours, and LGF, and RWN, and jihad watch. Anywho, not to overlook other vets, but the WW2 crowd was the greatst generation ever!

You are absolutely correct. My next door neighbor is 83 and still going strong. He served in the Pacific and the European theatres. My Dad served in the Navy from 48-52 on a destroyer. We are losing them all too quickly.

I can't make out all of the medals but one of them is a Purple Heart, which means he was wounded in combat.
