Happy Veterans’ Day!

It’s Veterans’ Day, and is also 11/11/11, which is mystifyingly wonderful for people who believe the Julian calendar means something other than a random way to mark time (I don’t mean to be dismissive, or maybe I do, but in either case I think it’s silly).

Veterans’ Day, though, is important. Like all of us, I’m sure, I have relatives who served in the military, and I honor those people who fought so that we wouldn’t have to. I wish there was a more meaningful and helpful thing to do other than say “Thank you,” but that’s all I’ve got.

So thank you.

Megan

PS: Props to Diane, whose cover soldier is the art for today.

What a lovely surprise, Megan. That’s one of my favorite covers of all.

I’m remembering my father (WWII and career army officer), my cousin Jimmy (Coast Guard), my cousin Dick (Viet Nam), and my uncle Bob (WWII).

That really is a gorgeous cover!

I am remembering first and foremost my Daddy – six years army and combat duty in Korea and then twenty-one years Air Force and some tours of duty during Vietnam of which we know very little.

My second cousin just returned from his second tour of duty in Afghanistan to his “day job” as a police officer in Montgomery, Alabama. Difficult to tell which is the more dangerous service these days.

I am also remembering my paternal grandfather’s service in the Navy during WWII and my mother’s brother’s service as a Seabee in the Pacific during WWII.

My mother’s other two brothers served in the Air Force.

I wish to thank all of the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country here and all over the world. As an Air Force brat I know the price you pay and your families pay and we can never repay you for the sacrifices you have made to insure our flawed but wonderful country continues to strive to be what the Founding Fathers intended – a beacon of hope and freedom for all who live here.

Love that cover!

I’m so glad I’m not the only one who thinks it’s silly.

God bless our military, those who have served, and those who are serving.
