REMEMBER THEM - AND THANK THEM


REMEMBER THE BRAVE
Please take a moment today, even if it's in the quiet of your own home, to pause and remember the brave men and women who have fought for our country.

90TH ANNIVERSARY
This Veteran's Day, November 11, 2008, is the 90th anniversary of the signing of the armistice in World War I. Fifty
-four years ago President Eisenhower signed into law the act that created this day of remembrance.

HONOR THEM
Honor the men and women who serve in our armed forces throughout the world, and particularly those who fight in Afghanistan and Iraq.

PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS

Please also take a moment to say a few words for our President-elect - a man with no military experience who, in just a few short weeks, will become our Commander-in-Chief. Say a few words for him, for the men and women who will serve under him and for all of us..

HALLOWED GROUND
This photo is of the Florence, Italy, American Military Cemetery and Memorial, where more than 4400 Americans who fought and die
d in World War II are buried. I've been to this site and find it impossible to describe the emotions of that day.


REMEMBER THEM AND HONOR THEM

Geoff,

Our vets deserve all the honor and gratitude we can muster and more.

One way of honoring those we have lost in service to our country is to help look after their loved ones.

I would ask your readers to donate to a Veterans Group to do just that.

If they are looking for a group to consider I would suggest they look here:
