Where Soldiers Are Honored Every Day

This was taken at Arlington National Cemetery recently.

We gathered donations for the Vietnam Vets and Disabled American Vets charities this week.  It’s a small way to honor Veterans Day.  Here’s another:

    KEagle!

    Just called my dad to wish him a happy Veteran’s Day. December 7th is his birthday, and on his 15th birthday he was called in by his mom (he was playing football with neighborhood kids) because our nation had been attacked at Pearl Harbor. A year later he lied about his age and joined the Navy. He was a captain of a warship by the time he left and went to college where he met my mother.

    I made him cry tonight, calling just to tell him how proud I am of him. What a gutsy and determined young man he was.

    Lest we forget and all that. Yes, yes, I will buy this book.

    My father went in the army in 1942 for the clean up of Pearl Harbor. He is no longer with us to wish him a happy Veteran’s Day but would like to wish all service members Happy Veteran’s Day you deserve it. We are very proud of you.

    Many thanks to all members of the Armed Forces, past and present!

  4. I stand corrected. Turns out this photo was taken in September. Point is, the vigil is kept no matter what.

    I already have the anthology in print and ebook, but I have been recommending it to others!
    The eleventh of November is a special day for many countries in the world, but it is called different things in different places. Here in Australia it is Remembrance Day.
    Yesterday I spent some time going through my father’s pictures from when he fought in the Vietnam War. So surreal seeing him as a skinny young guy with a gun, in the jungle.
    The photographer (of the above picture in the rain) is Karen Markert. Someone took her *amazing* picture from her Facebook account and the media started using it. It boggles the mind that major newspapers didn’t bother finding the source before putting it in their articles.

    God bless our Vets and all they’ve done to keep our nation secure.

    My dad is a WWII vet so Veteran’s Day always has special meaning for me. My wish for this Veteran’s Day is that we as Americans honor our vets in meaningful ways…like supporting higher pay for enlisted men/women, a job’s bill that will give them a leg up when they return from service, and fully funding the VA to provide quality health care for them when they return. The cases of PTSD have skyrocketed among our Vets in recent years. I’ve written my Congressmen to urge them to support these and other avenues to support members of our military.
