Celebrating Veteran's Day and Duty, Honor, Country

On the way home from dropping my wife at the airport in Westchester, I stopped to get my radio fuse replaced in my Jaguar.  On the way home, my Bernese Mountain dog Tucker and I were at last able to listen to the radio.  As we rode along, I had the pleasure of hearing President Trump address the crowd at the beginning of the New York Veteran's Day parade.  I don't care how you feel about Trump himself, but I will tell you he has one great speech writer.  The speech expressed the utmost respect and appreciaton for our brave fellow Americans who have served our country.  They have fought to keep us free in the past and continue to do so today.  There were times during the speech when I found my eyes leaking tears of gratefulness and overwhelming thanks. As I rounded the corner at Academy Hill, the local militia field which is the sight of our town war memorial, there they were.  I could see in the distance nearly 100 cars and a great throng of townspeople  who had gathered to honor all the millions who have served our country.  My spirit was buoyed and I rushed into the house and proudly placed my flag in its place outside  my front door.  Thank you one and all who have been a part of that wonderful tradition of honor, bravery and service.

My father was in the Army and served in the Pacific in WWII. My wife's father served in the Pacific in the Navy. So many of their generation fought to maintain our freedom. Many did not return and they have Memorial Day dedicated to their memories.

I am thankful for their service and for the service of all Veterans and for those who continue to serve on our behalf.

Thank you for sharing that John.  My father in law was an Army Air Corps pilot in the pacific theater from 1941 thru 1945.  He survived and retired from the Air Force in 1969 as  a Colonel.
