Delray Beach...To All Those Who Serve and Have Served.

We have had Chamber of Commerce weather this week, and word of warning to my friends up north...prepare for our annual onslaught of sunny beaches and warm weather from all of your friends down south!!!

The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. Douglas MacArthur

 

 

If your community has any special events today to honor your Veterans, I hope you’ll be able to attend.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy

 

 

 

On one of our walks this week we saw this on the beach. It came in with the tide, as did a lot of grass, miscellaneous floats, an old lobster trap, and assorted flip flops. I can only imagine the damage this would have caused to any boat that crossed its path.

Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause. Abraham Lincoln

The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation. President George Washington

Have an honorable weekend!

Kathy, those photos make it really difficult not to just back and bag and head south.

Such a great day of appreciation for those that have fought for our freedoms, even though we don't always appreciate the freedom we have.

Kathy,

We are in agreement with you.  These men and women who serve have lives like we do.  At dinner I sat and had a long conversation with a Navy SEAL now retired.  We talked about his daughter, his business and his continuing willingness to represent the SEALS at events like the one we attended.  I think the American public does not realize that they are just like the rest of us, with a desire to go out of their way to protect our freedom.  A

Excellent quote choices. If I could serve I would do it all over again. Nothing like waking up on the ocean with nothing but water and sky!

This is why I cannot stomach what is going on in the NFL. Even if the protest has nothing to do with Veterans, if they perceive it as a slight they should stop!

The beaches are getting cleaned up but that big one decided to wait awhile. Look forward to getting back to sunny and warm there in December.

Hi Marco Giancola it's my favorite quote in the post.  Hope you're enjoying the sun, temps, and getting ready to watch the big game tonight. 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® God bless and watch over them. 

James Dray I remember one of the boats we bought years ago. We'd just picked it up after having work done on it and we hit something that was submerged. Yep..had to take it back in.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel When you think about what they sacrifice-even if they're not in a combat area- you have to admire them.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty Unfortunately I think the original message has been totally buried. 

Joe Pryor the weather here has been gorgeous. 

George Souto it would be nice if we gave them the recognition and support they deserve.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat and I thank you for the feature in your group. Have a wonderful Sunday. 

Thank you Endre Barath, Jr. That was Larry and our friend, Vic, who has a very interesting Viet Nam story. It was on CBS back in May.
