Veterns Day


Veterans Day in my opinion is not only a day which we remember those that served are Country, giving us the freedom that we have today, but those that serve us actively as I speak. If you don't know much about Veterans Day and how it came about, please read this from Wikipedia: Veterans Day

I have been very fortunate to have never lost anyone close to me during War time or even during 911. My thoughts and prayers go out to those loved ones lost during these emotional times.  For many of you that know me, I am very passionate about our Country, who we are as a Nation, and for what we stand for. I have had the pleasure of serving in the US. Army for 2 years and I will never forget that part of my life. Here is a nice tribute relating to Veterans Day : Veterans Day Salute  (please watch this 2 minute video)



google & Veterans dayOn a side note, what brought me to remember Veterans Day, which is November 11th, is because of Google. I am always amazed on what they market on certain holidays. If you have read some of my blogs, I also have followed Google in the last year and their new images during specific holidays.  If you want to read more : Google & Marketing.... It's Halloween  And I want to thank Google for recognizing and remembering Veterans Day




To all those that have served including those here on Active Rain...... I say, THANKS!!!!

Hello Jeff, Thank you for remembering our troops for Veterans Day. I would be honored if you would read an article I wrote about our son leaving for Iraq. He arrived in Kuwait today and we heard from him! Thanks so much. Debra Brooks

This is a very nice compilation and tribute Jeff.  I see that Debra posted above me.  I was thinking of her yesterday after she posted about her son leaving "for the sandbox" and my heart ached for her.

Jeff, I have to admit when I saw google's logo, I knew it was a holiday but I didn't figure they were helmets for Veterans day until I turned on the TV and saw a commercial for Macy's Veterans day sale.

Thanks for the post and god bless our Veterans.

Debra, Best wishes to your son Danny

Jeff, it truly is more meaningful than ever!  My Exchange Club just had a wonderful dinner honoring all of our veterans and active service men and women.  I wrote a blog about it Saturday but won't put a link here as I don't want to violate our rules:).

Bob.....  My pleasure and I think we all should take some time to thank those that have served. thank you for the kind comments.

Ann.... thanks for writing your post and for the comments.

Lisa.... my pleasure and thanks for stopping by.

Jason C. .....  I wish I could have served again. Thanks for your kind words.

Gary....  yes, we are free because of the service men and women that have put their lives on the line. Thanks

Simon....  that's a great statement. Freedom came with many costs, high priced costs as in lost lives and family sacrifices.  I would have loved to have heard that radio show. Thanks for your feedback.

Thesa....  thanks for all of the kind thoughts and comments. And thanks for recognizing Veterans Day.

Marchel....  my thoughts and prayers go out to your son and your family for his sacrifice. I pray that he comes home safe. Thanks for the kind comments.

Bob & Carolin....   I am sure the service was wonderful. Thanks for sharing this and for stopping by.

Kris.....  I did list Debra's post when I came across it yesterday, but I haven't had a chance to read it or comment as of yet. And I thank you for your compliments.

Mitchell....  are those eyes getting old?  ;o)   That was the first thing that I noticed when I say Google's logo. I then added Google to this post.  Thanks for your kind words to all that have served and to Debra's son.

Diane....   I don't mind at all when someone adds a link in my comments to a post that relates to what I wrote about. Especially more so in this case. I will look for it and link it. If you see this before I have the chance, please don't hesitate to link it here.  Thanks and thanks for your comments.

Jeff, thanks for sharing and remind us that this is indeed a very special day. I am thankful for all those past and present who risk their lives to keep America safe.

And yes, kudos to google for not worrying about the PC crowd -- it's OK to honor those fighting the enemy.

Happy sailing ... _/) Paul -

They're always doing something for holidays....I for one make it a point to look and see what they have done....

I am thankful that they come home safe and support them while they're gone. Two clients and an agent just came back. Thanks for taking the time to write in support of our troops.

Robert....  I didn't get a chance to read it as of yet or comment, but I did link it in this post now. Thanks for doing the post. 

Sharon....  it's definitely brought some thoughts and tears to myself, especially when I watch these videos. Thanks for your feedback and for stopping by.

Paul.....  I think we need more reminders as this, because so many people fight the politics of war and don't pay attention to those that are sacrificing their lives. ... no matter what we are fighting and the reasons why. 

And you are correct in regards to Google, not worrying about the PC politics and what people might think or what side of the fence that they might be on.  thanks for your input.


Sally.... Ever sense I started blogging about Google back in March and when they did a logo for Earth Day. If you didn't see the logo then, you can check it out here. It's pretty neat and creative. Google + Earth Day = Marketing twist & creativity

Overall, thanks for your comments and for stopping by. 


Collette.... thank you very much for those polite words.  Are you a member or just stopping by?

Ryan....  I think many in the real estate business are working today. Even though banks were closed and schools, because it was a Federal holiday, I think most people in the real estate world worked. I talked to two title companies today that were opened also.  Don't forget, the AR gods are getting ready for NAR in Vegas also...

Cindy....truly sorry for your loss. Thank you for your support and for your feedback.

James....  my pleasure and thanks for stopping by with the support.

Jason....  well, thank you very much Mr. Sardi for those kind words.  Thanks for the support.

Thanks for your recognition, heads up on Google and the links to these posts. I will make it a point to work my way thru them. By the way, received my retirement orders, pension kicked in... and in process of converting healthcare. 

My wife and I went to Patrick AFB to PX and Commissary a few weeks ago.  It was great as it had been sometime since we had done this.  Traffic was a we neared the east cost the Shuttle Discovery was launched.....absolutely awesome!  I had forgot about the launch being scheduled.  What should have been a 6 hr excursion turned into about 10 hours.
