    Thanks for posting this! Veterans Day is always special to me. My father is a Vietnam Vet and it is my mom’s birthday. They will be getting in to town today to visit with the grandkids until Thanksgiving. I always love to do something special for both of them.

    I really appreciate this events,the Veteran’s day.I mean I’m not being sentimental but if you think about the time and life they give to their country.So they are worth remembering and given some special time to be able to give them the feeling that they’re being loved and remembered by the people who lived on the country they once fight for.
