Thank You Veterans

According to a news report I heard on the radio this morning, there are 14 living veterans of World War I (the war to end all wars they called it then). The youngest is 106! They were in uniform 88 years ago tomorrow when at 11:11 on 11/11, the guns fell silent. They, like all the men and women who have worn the uniform of our nation and risked (and often paid) so much for our freedom deserve our thanks and gratitude.

Falling as it does on a Saturday this year, Veteran's Day will receive even less notice than usual. And that's a shame. Tomorrow, take a minute out of watching Alabama's worthless coach get us whipped in a yet another game or whatever else you have planned for the day and give thanks for...and to...genuine American heroes. God bless the members, current and past, of our Armed Forces.
