Veterans Day - 2012
Today, Sunday November 11, 2012, again marks Veterans Day in the United States. Many of you will celebrate this day as part of a long holiday weekend. Others will simply ignore it. Still others will attend one of the many services around our area that honors those men and women who have served our country proudly as members of the Armed Forces of the United States of America.
I hope you will take a minute to honor my fellow veterans - those who served in the many military conflicts that have occurred in my lifetime - World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and other places throughout the world where our military presence has helped keep the peace.
REMEMBERING MY COMRADES IN ARMS
It's been more than four decades since I served this country proudly during the time of the Vietnam conflict. I remember with great fondness those folks with whom I served, several of which were among the more than 58,000 who gave their lives. If you wish, you can read other remembrances I've written about this day, beginning with the one I wrote last year, HERE. Follow the links on that one to previous entries.
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Thanks for supporting all of us who served this country. Hug a veteran today... And now, Norah Jones will leave us with a little video clip to help mark this day.
