The Day to Honor Veterans

I have no recollection of learning about Veterans Day in elementary school but I do recall wishing my dad a Happy Veterans Day when I was seven or eight; casually expressed as I walked past him while he was working in the garage.  It was only years later that he told me how much weight those words carried.  So again dad, Happy Veterans Day.

I would also like to thank all of my ancestors who fought for this land: in the French and Indian War; the American Revolutionary War, where one of my ancestors served with George Washington; the War of 1812; the Civil War; and, WWII.
