Veterans Day


The "Betsy Ross Colonial Flag," as found at historic Old Salem, NC


The current American Flag, as found flying at my house daily

Veterans Day... So many things that brings to mind... both grandfathers' time in the Army, fighting in WWII... my father-in-law's time in the Navy... friends from college who married into the military... new friends I have "met" through twitter that are currently spouses of military servicemen... our possible future in the military...

Veterans Day... So many things to be thankful for... freedom... capitalism... democracy...

Veterans Day... Thank you, past and present military families... risking your life... your daily sacrifices... living as a single spouse for periods of time... all for the sake of the USA.
