I posted this on someone else's post who said it's ok to shop on thanksgiving, I'm not saying it's wrong but just think about it I think some of the backlash is due to the erosion of time spent with family , Fourth of July , a lot of people are "home" Easter is a religious holiday and religion is a touchy subject for stores and organizations ,Memorial Day , Labor Day , Martin Luther King day , Presidents' Day , Veterans Day , New Year's Day , no one is preparing their shopping strategy . Yes 1st responders and medical , travel personal etc have to work , but a lot or most of the days I mentioned above are days of remembrance , not shopping , thanksgiving , and Christmas for Christians always have seemed to be for getting together with as much family and friends as possible and enjoy the time spent , I also can see that soon we all will be working every holiday regardless of our career choice because the companies act as if they can't make a profit on the other 364 days , also people don't mind missing a d ...
Just wanted to share this moving message AO received last week from Hank Steinbrecher (former Secretary General of US Soccer and National Soccer Hall of Fame inductee): "I wanted to take a moment, on this Veterans Day, to say thank you for all you have done for soccer in America. As a military family, and devoted US Soccer fan, I tell you of the emotional response I have had to your active participation in US Soccer matches. Certainly you are also doing a great service to your country. To be in a stadium with the American Outlaws singing, no screaming our National Anthem brings tears to my eyes. To see the pageantry and passion that you all bring to our team is simply outstanding. To hear the support our team now has, shouting God Bless America is just heart warming. As the former Secretary General of US Soccer, I can tell you that we rarely played a true home game. I have traveled the world with our team and must say that I will put the American Outlaws against the best fans of the world. You have brough ...

Thought I'd add two pictures from the other night on Veterans Day. We met in City Square Park to dedicate 5 new flag poles donated by the Waconia Lions. The flag poles will fly the flags of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and the Coast Guard. I was pleased to share some thoughts, and I think it makes just a beautiful addition to our park. As you visit the park and see the flags that circle the U.S. Flag, remember the freedoms you have, and those that continue to defend them.

It was veterans day this past week and guess what? My employer had me working? Do you believe this? All the contractors in the business office of the hospital had to work and all the union members had the day off! I dont get this. I served proudly in the US Army and US Air Force for 13 years and was a Gulf War veteran in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and I had to work? I went on maneuvers in the back country of Texas to locate and record the location of body parts for US Air Force pilots who died when their BIB crashed against a cliff - somebody had to do it! I did it! And yet I come back to civilian life and because I am not a contractor I had to work! This is how much our country care of its veterans. I know I am in a capitalist country and the economy is not that great. I did work on veterans day. But I asked for a day off to celebrate with my fellow veterans. And I was turned down by the hospital. That is America today ladies and gentleman.
I Agree wholeheartedly with that! I think there are too many holidays and birthdays people get off for no reason at all. But Veterans Day is not one of them... Speaking from a Veteran of 22 years point of view.

Did you know that Veterans Day hasn't always been called Veterans Day, and that it wasn't always celebrated on November 11th? Originally, Veterans Day was known as Armistice Day.

I received this letter from Senator Claire McCaskill Dear Sue, Veterans Day was a special opportunity to thank our veterans for their service to our nation - bravely protecting the freedoms we often take for granted. This year, the day had even greater meaning for one Missouri veteran and his family. Sixty years after being wounded in action during the Korean War, Farmington native Dencil Francis finally received the Purple Heart he bravely earned, and I was thrilled to be able to help. As the daughter of a World War II veteran, aiding Missouri veterans in any way I can is one of the most important jobs I have. Mr. Francis, like many in his generation, never sought out praise or recognition - it was his children who contacted my office looking for help tracking down the medal he had earned. At the request of my office, the Army reviewed its records and determined that Mr. Francis should have been awarded the Purple Heart medal. My office and I were then honored to help arrange a formal award ceremony for ...

Ya know I think its awesome in so many ways how everyone is so happy for Bat Kid. Poor little fella has battled cancer his entire young life, then gets the wish of a lifetime granted. Yes its lovely. And everyone generally is touched by a cute story. BUT, how many people intrigued or involve with this actually acknowledged, remembered, or thank a Veteran on Veterans Day? Lovely stories are great folks, but freedom isnt free. And most Vets need tons of support. I am in no way trying to discredit Bat Kid. I guess Im saying this cuz the last weeks have been troubling for me. I wish this little warrior all the best and hope he grows up happy and healthy. And I send love to the Phillipines, hoping they recover as best they can. But Fellow Veterans always come first to me. Its just I dont see enough love to or for us. Especially government types and rich politicians. A bit of a ramble, better stop here. That is all. Reporting from Long Beach. Deadman81.out!!!

So I got 5 so 5 things you don't know about me…this is going to get real but if you know me you know I struggle with the filter so here goes. 1. When I was 19 I was going to be a father. My son died prematurely. 2. The reason I start Christmas music on the day after Veterans Day is because that marks the anniversary of his death and Christmas music was one of the only things that kept me sane or maybe even alive. 3. Although I hate people as a concept, I've only ever hated one person in my life. 4. I am a big fan of hip hop but if you told me I could only listen to Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole and Michael Buble for the rest of my life, I would be good. Singing those songs are the best morning rituals. 5. I've seen a lion up close….without the cage.

Kemper Final Formation Fred Arthur Story Fred Arthur Story TULIA - Lifelong illusionist and magical entertainer Fred Arthur Story passed away at the age of 82 on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2013. Fred was born in Plainview on Oct. 17, 1931, to Robert E. and Nadine Story. Fred became interested in magic tricks at the age of 5 when his barber, Harvey Gaddis in Plainview, would perform sleight-of-hand tricks in trade of him sitting still in the barber chair. Fred graduated from Kemper Military School in Booneville, Mo., in 1951. He married his lifelong sweetheart Ann Cowan on Aug. 9, 1952 and the two of them celebrated their honeymoon at that summer's Abbott's Magic Get-Together. Fred earned a B.S. degree in history and education from Texas Tech University in 1954. He joined the U.S. Air Force in 1954 and was discharged in 1956 and later was discharged as a captain in the Air Force Reserves.

I'm still so p*ssed off about our kids going to school on Veterans Day and not observing that important day. My previous little granddaughter is without her dad all the time and for what? We can't even give one day for these men and women. To all you government/state *** . I mean officials, keep in mind that while your snuggled safe and warm at night, my son in law and millions of others are laying (not sleeping) in a dirt hole that they dug themselves with a rifle at there side! I hope you feel nothing but shame, while they observe 365 days a year for you, you can't observe 1 for them!

I managed to offend some folks .. Go figure but I'm more than a little annoyed about this whole Veterans Day thing complaints about free food not being good enough people that served voluntarily during peace time comparing their service to those that have fought in combat . I love this country and I respect the troops . This Vets day Was about my grandfathers service during Ww2 . His humble demeanor , his true patriotism and his humility. I'm older and when people came back from Nam ( those lucky enough to make it back) they were spit on and called baby killers , they had no benefits no welcome home and were blamed for a war they may have been drafted to serve. I am so glad that folks learned we can support the troops but not the war. I support the Wounded Warriors program and plan on making a donation for the Christmas holidays thru my work to them. I run into homeless vets , my compassion for these folks is endless . My gratitude knows no bounds . I saw a video that attacked a fast food worker over a B ...

Yesterday was Veterans Day, Senator Feinstein earlier this year claimed all Veterans suffer from PTSD and therefore should lose their 2nd Amendment Rights.

Overall... I had a good Veterans Day yesterday. Attended the KAVV's POW/MIA ceremony at Library Park in Kenowhere, WI... our Honor Guard did and outstanding job! Saw some old friends... reflected on friends that are no longer with us... toasted all my Brothers and Sisters with the usual shots of Jack! Didn't get too drunk... had a designated driver (which means that I'm either getting smarter or older... or both!) and hit the sack at 9:00 PM (still don't know what tired me out so!). And I'll do it all over again next year and every year until the good Lord comes for me.

Starbucks wants to recruit 10,000 vets, spouses to its ranks 5:29am EST By Lisa Baertlein (Reuters) - Starbucks Corp (SBUX.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) is looking for thousands of good men - and women. The world's biggest coffee chain said on Wednesday it would commit to hiring at least 10,000 veterans and spouses of active military in five years. It also said five new and existing U.S. Starbucks cafes on or near military bases will share a portion of each sale with non-profit organizations that help veterans re-enter the workforce. Many U.S. companies have committed to hiring thousands of military veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Seattle-based Starbucks said it will have specialized recruiters to match the unique skills of veterans and their spouses with company jobs. "This demographic represents one of the most underutilized talent pools in our country," said former U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, now a Starbucks director.

My Brother Knights, First of all I say Good Morning to you and your families. Hope you enjoyed Veterans Day with your family and friends and remembered those courageous soldiers that fault so diligently for the honor and safety of this great country. I remain proud of each and everyone of you. Brother today I write to remind you of the historic event that will take place this evening at Lakeland Lender Regional Airport. Today, Tuesday, November 12, 2013, the first ever Polk County Honor Flight for those who served during World War II will happen at Lakeland Lender Regional Airport. The Honorees will be returning at approximately 9:00 pm. Knights with Regalia are requested to muster together NLT 8:30 pm for instructions. Everyone else is invited to come out and participate and show our support for those that served. These are American Heroes! Veterans are the backbone of America, Joseph F. Grates Grand Knight

At the Veterans Day assembly, j felt like I was watching Cadet Kelly.
I spent Veterans Day with 220 "Special" Veterans at the Veterans Victory House in Walterboro, SC. The most special one there was my husband Maynard. The celebration was outstanding! Veterans, their families, and dignitaries were in attendance; the mayor of Walterboro, SC, Senator Tim Scot (a US Army Retired Special Forces veteran), and many others. The Keynote Speaker was Mr. Ross Perot. We learned that not only did he serve in the military, but so did his father, his son and his grandson. A great supporter of the Veteran’s Association, The Ross Perot Foundation has donated millions of dollars to Veterans. A surprise for Mr. Perot was the attendance of one soldier that had been shot seven times in the Fort Hood attack. This soldier was sent to the best possible medical facilities to assist in his recovery by Mr. Perot. What an experience to see the reunion of these two men. It was a great Veterans Day that I will never forget.
I keep seeing references to the irony in 0bama's Veterans Day speech. That wasn't irony. That was a planned spit in the eye to veterans. It was a deliberate mocking of Congress. He and his worshipers have been wrongly blaming Congress for the government shutdown that was Harry Reid's plan all along. The Honor Flight veterans weren't kept out of the memorials because of Congress or Ted Cruz. They were kept out on 0bama's and /Harry Reid's orders.
Ross Perot delivers Veterans Day message in Walterboro By Schuyler Kropf WALTERBORO — The deep-rooted Texas twang is still there, even if the voice is not as strong as it used to be. H. Ross Perot, the billionaire one-time presidential candidate and friend to servicemen and women everywhere, visited a veterans nursing home Monday to deliver a thank-you to all those who have worn the uniform. “Your services and sacrifices have given us the freedom that we have today,” Perot said during a 15-minute address. “You understand something that most people simply don’t understand, and that is: Freedom is not free.” Perot, 83, delivered the keynote address at the Veterans Victory House where more than 400 people gathered in the site’s lunchroom-turned-auditorium. Many were elderly and in wheelchairs. Some served as far back as World War II, including several Tuskegee Airmen and at least one local survivor of the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Perot made a rare trip to South Carolina after being ...
I don't see irony in 0bama talking about Honor Flight in the Veterans Day speech. I see a deliberate attempt to rub it in veterans' faces.
..so..yesterday was Veterans Day...every year this day passes and I wonder what we are really celebrating here? I wonder why they choose to see the gore, misery, and madness of war as somehow honorable or glorious? I wonder if those millions of dead bodies horribly mutilated understand that they were pawns for evil men..I think, that as long as War as seen as glorious, noble and worthy of celebration that War will never end...y'see the men that lead these wars are psychopaths of the highest order, they have no respect for human life and are purely concerned with their bloodlust, imperialism and hate...theyve completely lost empathy,...y'see...part of being a soldier means removing the barriers of empathy and humanity..removing your impulse to see other humans as your brother...to devalue humanity to a status lower than animals...in that way when they murder entire villages, or send drones to murder unsuspecting innocents they have no conscience no empathy nothing but glee...like a dog..salivating over raw ...
Yesterday, I celebrated veterans day by watching a very moving documentary called Honor Flight. A must see about WW2 veterans, 4 in particular. That generation, especially so many of the veterans, left us an incredible legacy that we should not squander or forget.There was one WW2 vet at the show. I was proud to shake his hand. Happy belated veterans day to all my veteran friends and family.
. We sincerely hope that every Veteran enjoyed their day yesterday!

Yesterday I went to my son's high school to discuss some recent events that took place. The assistant principal is a Marine Corps veteran. Our meeting took place on Veterans Day. The cool thing is that he kept addressing me as "sir" all the time. I'm not use to that and I think it shows a lot of class. I wish more people had that level of respect for each other.
How did you celebrate Veterans Day yesterday?
So yesterday was Veterans Day... is it just me or did there seem to be more appreciation/support shown this year than in years past? I've been a Veteran for almost 17 years now and I have not noticed this much support from the community before. It's awesome. Thank you! And thank you, for the following: a free haircut, a free oil change, two free deluxe car washes, a free entree from Olive Garden, Texas Road House, Chilis California Pizza Kitchen and Applebee's, a free appetizer from Outback and Carrabbas, and a cinnamon roll from Cinnabon and a frozn yogurt from Menchies. I was able to feed my entire family a great meal for free... Forunately all of these restaurants are in close proximity to each other.
by Opie, Rikki's Refuge Roving Reporter Yesterday was November 11th, and our nation celebrated Veteran's Day, a day of remembrance to honor all who served in the military. Here is a story about one of the many brave soldiers who went to fight a war in a foreign land. One that sacrificed so much so the rest of us would not have to. And a story about a dog that helped him heal. One of the long term benefits of animal sanctuaries such as Rikki’s Refuge is the powerful impact it can have on people’s lives. Volunteers at Rikki’s Refuge work hard to raise awareness of animal cruelty and neglect, and emphasize the need for a humane approach to all who live within our communities. Sometimes it is the animals themselves that tell the most unforgettable stories, just by being a shining example of kindness, compassion, survival and forgiveness. A perfect example of how an animal can enhance the lives of others is a dog named Walker. Walker is a 10-year-old Treeing Walker *** Hound/English Pointer m ...

Now that Veterans Day November 11th on our calendar has passed, remember that everyday is Veterans Day in our day to day lives and if you don't think so, just imagine what a day in our lives would be without them! Thank a veteran when ever you can for the freedoms we enjoy every day.
Thank you everyone for thanking me for my service and wishing me a Happy Veterans Day. I am proud to be a veteran. And I thank the rest of those who served or are currently serving now in the military.
I must admit this Veterans Day was the first Veterans Day that I really gave any thought or had any feelings about being a veteran. I assume it came from being involved with the Veterans Honor Run, but it also appeared there was more recognition of veterans by the public in general. It felt good to be with other veterans at the event.

when you are out wandering around today and tomorrow. OR any other day for that matter, and you meet a service man or woman in uniform, or a veteran-you can tell by the cap they are wearing-or writing on their shirt or jacket-thank them for their service to our country. I do it all the time, and get it done also! from Terry Olson Veterans Day 2013
says to hug a veteran today!! Happy Veterans Day. We honor those who serve in our military :)
Yesterday a very good Guy and veteran past away on veterans day while in a veterans hospital, very sad this Guy was on two car clubs with me and will be missed. Mark until we can go cruising again in heaven you will always be in my thoughts .
Veterans Day message went great. Topic: "The Voice of a Veteran". Thanks to my parents, aunt's, uncle's, (specifically the Jackson Clan of Washington Georgia), family, and friends who attended. Love you all. Special thanks to Rev and Mrs. Edward Anderson, for asking me to speak. God Bless
So here I am today, the day after Veterans Day. I will admit that I did not once thank a Veteran yesterday. Part of me worries that it will sound hollow even when it is meant with the most sincerity I can personnally express. So, after thinking on it all day yesterday and now this morning, I want to thank all Veterans with all the sincerity they earned and deserve on a day that isn't the one day a year when they hear it from everyone. I hope the Veterans that see this can understand the thoughts and feelings that lead me to this. Thank you.
Emporia is the founding city of Veterans Day so it was a holiday yesterday. We at NTHF hope you all reflected on what those men and women did and continue to do for our country. Teachers and veterans change lives, teachers on the home front and the veterans abroad. If you didn't already, thank a veteran.
U.S. aircraft carrier heads to the Philippines — Pentagon comptroller is ‘nervous’ about 2014 — Congress may be done legislating for the year By KATE BRANNEN | 11/12/13 8:29 AM EDT By Kate Brannen With Jonathan Topaz NAVY WARSHIPS RACE TO THE PHILIPPINES: As Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation became painfully clear yesterday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered the aircraft carrier USS George Washington and other Navy ships to sail for the Philippines as quickly as possible. “The aircraft carrier, which carries 5,000 sailors and more than 80 aircraft, is currently in Hong Kong for a port visit. The crew is being recalled early from shore leave and the ship is expected to be underway later this evening,” Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said. The George Washington is carrying Carrier Air Wing 5 with nine squadrons that include strike fighters, electronic attack aircraft and — crucially for disaster relief — MH-60 Seahawk helicopters. Two Navy cruisers and one destroyer are also expected ...

WELLSTON— Wellston High School (WHS) held its 11th Annual Veterans Day Assembly on Monday.
We had a blast yesterday with the crowd we received here! The girls and my mother rocked it whippin that food out fast! And bless my pops for coming in on veterans day to help us as a veteran himself and enjoyed every moment of it! Hoo-rah! to him!
Yesterday was Veterans Day. As a veteran myself, I was treated to a free meal at "On the Border" Mexican restaurant. Very nice of OTB to do that for the veterans.
It's a good Tuesday morning, how did you guys spend your Veterans Day yesterday? Did you have the day off, or did you have to work?
Yesterday was the first time I have ever celebrated Veterans Day! My husband, veteran of Vietnam, Mark and I went to the first annual Veterans Day event for the Woodlands. We stood at Town Green Park as a giant flag was raised on a firetruck and local leaders spoke. Afterward, we visited McCullough Jr High where the 8th graders had filled the school grounds with posters honoring our heroes who had served. We noticed an elderly man with a walker and talked with him. He was 100 years old and had served in Patton's 3rd Army in WW 2! We owe those who have sacrificed so much!
We think that EVERY Day should be Veterans Day. Illinois Patriot Education Fund and Veteran Beer Company (VBC) are trying to make sure that no one forgets that. Remember that every time you drink a VBC you will be helping to employ Veterans and proceeds from every beer/merchandise are invested in Veteran causes like IPEF. Show your support and drink VBC.
So I got put down, labeled and called names yesterday for daring to think Veterans Day is a day we talk about the Vets and what made them that- fighting wars- I was told it was not the day. However, I have found it is NEVER the "day". People seem unable to talk about such things with reason and set emotions aside to see the process and the ways the military has been used. And We The People, need to be the ones looking at and talking about this, So, let me ask you, do you simply believe that America (the military specifically, and all it's is the do-gooders of the world, has made no mistakes, still obeys it's Constitution when it comes to wars, and deserve reverence and respect for every decision made in it's history regarding military action and intervention in countries around the world? Do you believe we should NOT be asking these questions, because it is not "our place" ?( As I was told in a message this morning) Or do you think that we need to have a respectful -that is the KEY word- discussion abou . ...
Nov. 12th 2013 Yesterday was veterans day and we gave thanks for our military veterans. Today I am thankful for another kind of veteran. Our prayer warriors out there. That pray for friends family and even strangers every day with great results because they believe that through God all things are possible. So thank you lord for this day and those warriors and there faith in you.
Took my favorite Veteran out for brunch on VETERANS DAY...Thank you my love for your service.
I was taken aback by the hostess at Fatz when she ask me if I was a veteran. I was caught up in the thoughts of the day’s activities and forgot yesterday was Veterans Day. I told her I was in the army for 4 years. She told me on behalf of Fatz’s employees, and the rest of the nation, she wanted to thank me for my service to the Nation. She then told me she hoped I enjoyed my meal on Fatz. When the waitress came to wait on us I ask her what the hostess meant. She told me any entree on the menu was free to all veterans. I didn't take advantage of the situation and ordered a cheese burger and some of their slaw I love so much. While I was eating the manager came around and again thanked me for my service. When I got to the door after finishing my meal a waitress almost fell down rushing to open the door for me and again thanking me. The kind gestures by the staff at Fatz made me think maybe I should reenlist :) I will be eating at Fatz more often now !! A simple thank you means more to a vet than a fr .. ...
Please share your thoughts with this reader: I have trouble getting up out of bed every day. Today was Veterans Day. I'm a disabled American veteran. I'm in pain every day due to an injury I received during my service. I've been married and divorced twice. Last marriage was 11-11-11, so that has been on my mind today too. Last man I dated seemed to be The One and he said i was The One for him too. We both talked about marriage being in our future. He had a lot going on in his life, and I stayed by his side out of love. At one point, he started not being available to see me on days that we were supposed to be together. I don't know if he had started seeing someone else or not. His daughter had some mental health problems and eating disorders. He said he didn't even have time for himself, let alone for a relationship. It's been 6 months. I can't seem to bring myself to trust a man again. Most days, I don't even want to live. Yes, I have considered suicide. I am on an anti-depressant therapy. I don't feel li ...
Hey All, just because Veterans Day is past you need to still thank your past and present Military as they are still on the job. They are still the front line for our freedom and need the heop and support of us here at home. Care packages and cards are still very popular and boost moral a bunch for the guys and gals who are still in the trenches so to speak. Please thank any Veteran or active Military you see anywhere and it don't hurt to pick up their tab for a burger and fries also.
These are all good reminders of what Veterans Day represents. Please read them all and THANKS to each and every veteran, past, present and future espically our Wounded Warriors... Once upon a time when our politicians did not tend to apologize for our country's prior actions. Here's a refresher on how some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our great country. JFK'S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk , was in France in the early 60's when DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaulle said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible. Rusk responded, "Does that include those who are buried here?" DeGaulle did not respond. You could have heard a pin drop. * When in England , at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of 'empire building' by George Bush. He answered by saying, "Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom . ...
We know Veterans Day was yesterday, but it's not too late to salute 107-year-old Austinite Richard Overton, the oldest surviving WWII veteran, a man who "enjoys 'a tablespoon' of whiskey in his coffee each morning ... smokes a dozen cigars a day [and] has an 89-year-old 'lady friend.'"
I was too busy yesterday entertaining my own personal veteran to get on here and say Happy Veterans Day to all of you, most especially my uncles, my aunt, all our military friends and family, and of course, Chris Gwin!

This Veterans Day, we ask you to remember America's War Horses, whose descendants still roam the lands of the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge in Nevada. The Obama Administration and Congress have turned their backs on these forgotten heroes, but we will continue to fight for them. . Please take a moment this Veterans Day to read, share and comment on our new Huffington Post blog, which calls attention to our government's tragic treatment of this historic herd.
No greater sacrifice, no greater hero, no greater service to fellow man, then that of a Veteran, except Jesus Christ Himself. May The Lord of All be with our heroes and their family's all days not just Veterans Day. For I enjoy all my days because some of them gave theirs up for me. Jesus did the same and I am thankful and truly blessed. Bro. Don

I have several Marysville teacher friends, could you Please comment as to Why Marysville cancelled school today and WHY No school on VETERANS DAY~ usually I'm in total agreement when Marysville Administrators decide to cancel school after a 1 or 2 hour delay.but really today? .so WHY was school out when most kids have NO clue as to what Veterans Day is or means..my granddaughter had school in Bucyrus, yesterday and today, My Veteran neighbors and family members had to WORK (Shame)... Guess our Administrators ALL were in the Veterans Day Parade, or could the passing of the levy have anything to do with more days OFF?
A thought about our celebration of Veterans Day... This just about sums up life in this one song...by Don Moen...When It's All Been Said and Done. If you can find the words you'll see what I mean. I broadcast a live radio talk show about 10 years and out of Phoenix AZ and streaming from my home in Lakeway, and wanted this to be my theme song. My show was about "Hope for Health" whether physical, emotional, spiritual, financial...it was the whole picture of health. Now we need to pray for Hope for our Country! It's broken down on an individual level...through the words of this one song.
In Honor Of Veterans Day. A POEM WORTH READING He was getting old and paunchy And his hair was falling fast, And he sat around the Legion, Telling stories of the past. Of a war that he once fought in And the deeds that he had done, In his exploits with his buddies; They were heroes, every one. And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors His tales became a joke, All his buddies listened quietly For they knew where of he spoke. But we'll hear his tales no longer, For ol' Joe has passed away, And the world's a little poorer For a Veteran died today. He won't be mourned by many, Just his children and his wife. For he lived an ordinary, Very quiet sort of life. He held a job and raised a family, Going quietly on his way; And the world won't note his passing, 'Tho a Veteran died today. When politicians leave this earth, Their bodies lie in state, While thousands note their passing, And proclaim that they were great. Papers tell of their life stories From the time that they were young, But the passing of a Veteran Goes ...
Yesterday Chris and I went out for dinner for Veterans Day. As proud as I was of my veteran I couldn't help but tear up at our table as we watched the couple next to us (husband also a Marine vet, but from Vietnam). The wife must have had RA or some type of medical issue with her hands because she could barely use them to pick up her fork. My heart melted as we saw the husband get up and go to her side of the table, cut up her food and feed her. Then proceeded to tell her she looked beautiful and he's very happy she's there. He was the marine that should be thanked and yet he was just a saint to his wife. Chris and I were both blown away. It was so nice to see a couple so in love after so many years! And I've got to tell you, marines normally have a bad reputation for being complete *** but this guy was the exact opposite. It showed us, as well as our three year old, that that's what a marriage should look like. It was just so sweet!
Veterans Day Message from the Office of Warrior Care: On Veterans Day, our Nation pauses to honor our veterans and the sacrifices that so many have made to protect our way of life. It is often overlooked that a veteran’s commitment to our country does not end the moment he or she retires their uniform. And while there is no doubt that the lives of our veterans are greatly improved by the tireless work of caregivers, families, mentors, charities, and the Military community, many still return home to an uphill climb. Whether it is because of wounds, illness or injuries, financial hardships, or difficulty adjusting to civilian life, the transition can be a difficult one for many. That’s why we must rethink how we address these issues, how to provide care and support to our Service members from the moment they enlist to far beyond their transition, and work to promote wellness throughout the entire Military community. This is what drives me as an individual and civil servant – and what inspires the ...
Well i dont really consider myself a Veteran just yet on the fact i have not served overseas just yet but i definitely will not complain with the steak dinner and can of pop the army was willing to give me on veterans day. Even though it still came out of my check By the way those things are hard to come by at good old jrtc.
I am dumbfounded and caught off guard every time someone thanks me for serving our country. I don't participate in veterans day celebrations as a veteran, but I am there to support other veterans. My service was selfless. I do not want any recognition or praise for doing what every able bodied man should do just to pay the dues of freedom and liberty. Do I go out seeking free stuff and free food because I am a veteran, absolutely not. Especially from Applebees. My heart goes out to those who carry the scars of military life. The Army wives that stuck through thick and thin without cheating have my greatest respect and I will buy them a free meal or come mow their lawn any time. You deserve it. The men and women that lost their lives or are permanently scarred, physically and mentally. The ones like me that look back and KNOW that there was something I could have done to save a life and I didn't do it. That is pain that follows me everywhere. Haunts my dreams, my thoughts, and makes me look at everything d ...

Well my friends here we are. I hope you all forgive me for not posting something on Veterans Day. I really did not know what to post until now. So here it goes. Veterans Day is a day to remember those that have served or serving and they are either living or passed. My list of names, well if I listed everyone we would be here a while. So here we go on this Veterans Day I would like to remember. Don Goodwin, Joel Goodwin, William Phillips, Chester Tucker, Jimmy Doolittle's Raiders there are only four left, George Washington, the boys of Bunker Hill, Those that were guest of the Hanoi Hilton and the names of those on the Vietnam Memorial Wall, those brave men at Omaha Beach, all of those buried in Arlington National Cemetery, mothers father, sons, and daughters. I hope the memory and sacrifice of the ones that paid the ultimate price will never fade even with the passage of time. The shipmates entombed in the USS Arizona, the ones that have served and are still with us the ones and are serving now, and th . ...

Veterans Day Trivia Veterans Day was first called Armistice Day, declared to mark the end of World War I hostilities at 11 a.m., Nov. 11, 1918. Congress gave it that name in 1926, though it didn't become a national holiday for a dozen more years. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed legislation in 1954 to change the name to Veterans Day as a way to honor those who served in all American wars. Veterans Day is often confused with Memorial Day because they are similar in intent, but not identical. Memorial Day honors America's war dead, while Veterans Day honors all American veterans, living and dead, and has a special emphasis on thanking living veterans for their service to the country. Irving Berlin wrote the song "God Bless America" in 1918, but it was another 20 years before he changed the lyrics and turned it into the version we know. It debuted as part of an Armistice Day radio special on November 10th, the day before Veteran's Day and was performed by a lady named Kate Smith. All the proceeds went t ...
The following was passed along to me today. It was written by a Gold Star Wife and I thought I would pass it along to you ... Veterans Day 2013—Let Us Not Forget November 6, 2013 by Tiffany (Tiphany) Eckert Recently I was asked what Veteran’s Day meant to me… Veteran’s Day was created to honor the brave men and women, who have served their country, past and present—a National holiday, pretty straightforward. Yet for many, this day offers a different perspective and reality. For some its having looked death in the eye, stared it down like a lion to its prey and walked away from battle forever changed. Others spilled their crimson blood in foreign lands and sacrificed for those unable or unwilling to protect themselves. Some were never called to battle but they were and are standing at the ready should they be called upon. It’s for the countless thousands who have lost a comrade or two… or five. This day is about the war-dead, and their fellow soldiers that wish they could have taken their bud ...
Went to Golden Corral tonight for my Veterans Day meal. thank you Golden Corral. Saw m cousins, Pat and Tom. Tom now has acute diabetes. He was just coming back from his dialysis appointment. He is doing better, but I would ask every one to pray for him. His name is Tom Jordan. He is a former Green Beret and was in Vietnam twice. Love you all. Thank you.
They say November 11th of 2013 is Veterans Day but everyday we wake up and can go enjoy what we want is Veterans Day to me. It's a day to be thankful everyday, every year! This goes to all serving and has served! I must say my family has a big military background and my friends family. Thanks to my biggest idol, best dad anyone can ask for, my grand pa, my uncle Lee Hopkins, my uncle chuck, my uncle Jody, my uncle Allen, my little cousin Matthew, his friend Ramos, my best friend Brian Caye, my brother Brian Guthrie, my little bro Luke Bellman, OL brother Jeff Frisby, my boy and absolute best friend from HS Rod Long, funniest guy ever P'NO, My great cousin Kristen's husband David and her uncle Jeff, and so on! I could do this all night! I love and appreciate all of you guys and nothing means more to me than to see all of your faces on that American Flag! Of all the sporting events I have been to, I always tear up thinking of each And every one that had went through *** to make each American have th ...

I have proof that U Americans worship the dollar sign more than the American Flag. My employer worked us for 12 hours today, on Veterans Day
It has been Marty's and my tradition for years to meet up at the Golden Corral to enjoy a free meal on Veterans Day with scores of other military veterans. Marty couldn't make it this year. So, I went alone. I met two other veterans, both a bit older than me, while standing in line and we all wound up occupying a table together. We exchanged our "war stories" as we ate. I hadn't known these two men before and it is unlikely we will meet again. But, for the better part of an hour, we were comrades in a way that only other veterans could possibly understand.
Had the amazing opportunity today to celebrate Veterans Day skydiving with LeeAnn Rimes, her husband Eddie, Mario Lopez (yea, A.C. Slater), & the Wounded Warriors. Such an amazing event & great times! LeeAnn sang a beautiful "Star Spangled Banner" and we were off for a gorgeous sunset jump to finish off the day. So proud of all who have & still serve. Thank you for the freedom to have the life I live!
Had a great Veterans Day. Our Disabled American Veterans chapter assisted the Golden Corral Restaurant here in Lubbock in providing free dinners to hundreds upon hundreds of active military personnel & veterans. It was a real honor to meet & talk with so many veterans of a number of conflicts from WWII to the Gulf Wars. Check out the line.

I'd like to say thanks to everyone especially my wife and kids for making this day special. But even having the time of my life, I'm not blind to what has happened to my country, the Philippines. I pray for all those who have passed away or suffering and to those affected by it in any way. Mahal ko ang aking bansa
I ordered an American Flag hoodie if that counts for celebrating Veterans Day? Lol it has pot leafs and joints on it tho
Been thinking about Veterans Day today. Yesterday the pastor had the other veterans and myself stand. I can say I am proud to have served our country. Yet I think about all the "veterans of God" and Memorial Day. Some of the people have gone to be with Jesus others are still with us and impacting my life and walk with God. I think these people because of their faith and willingness to live for God, show His love because he love us first are way more important than I will ever be as a veteran of this nation. Here is a list of some of the people I think of, the list is not comprehensive. Bonnie Kurschner and George Vernon who till the end ran the good race, fought the good fight and kept the faith. Bob Johnson who had a profound effect on my life, Josh Jensen who taught me to love extravagantly, Emma Barnhart who lives and loves life through all the trials she has gone and is going through, Clint Schultz who showed me 2000 Christian denominations means 2000 ways to tell people about Christ and introduced me ...
Dynamic Discs Disc Golf Great Eric McCabe just reminded us that Veterans Day was founded in Emporia, Kansas. U.S. Representative Ed Rees from Emporia, Kansas, presented a bill establishing the holiday through Congress. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, also from Kansas, signed the bill into law on May 26, 1954. I remembered learning this but it was just so hot, couldn't remember where I read it. Likely in the Air Conditioned Emporia Public Library as Steven Jacobs practiced the day before 2013 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships rounds started. I took that day off as I had walked most all the practice rounds. Monday, July 8, 2013, 103' f and Steven would later tell me he kept leaving behind discs and then I felt guilty that I should have been worried about him. It was just so hot and window shopping proved too difficult! LOL When a person gets their mind set on something, well... there's just no telling what's in store. :)
What a great day ! Veterans Day ceremony at the VFW this morning. Dedication and raising and lowering of the flag at Veterans Park today and HUGE dinner at Golden Corral tonight, where Veteran's ate free !Thank you Bob, for your service and for being you ! I love you..
Everyday is Veterans Day in my book. . God Bless America!
a very appreciative Veterans Day! I am bless from all the thank you & support I have felt today! I would like to give out fist pumps and hugs to each and everyone of you! Also I'm proud of all service men and service ladies that are out on the wall, looking out for our freedom! The veterans that gave the ultimate gift! God Bless America
Day 11: i am thankful for all the service men and women on this Veterans Day. They give of themselves for complete strangers, for their country, and with so much courage. No matter what your political stance you cannot deny that we have so much, we are so blessed, and it's because of those who fight for our freedoms. In some countries I wouldn't be able to get the education I have, have the freedom to change my life, speak my mind, be independant, or even have the opportunity to get a career. God Bless America, the land of the free because of the brave. Thank you!!!
I want to thank the businesses who do a little extra to support our veterans. There were quite a few restaurants who offered free meals on Veterans Day and other discounts through the year. Golden Corral always go the extra mile and bring in the local honor guard to march and say the pledge..They also support the DAV "Golden Corral restaurants have provided over 3.7 million free meals and contributed over $7.4 million to the Disabled American Veterans organization." They also have a free summer camp for children of military families. Priority is given to disabled and fallen soldiers families, it is camp Corral... Please support the businesses who support our vets..
I know I'm a few minutes late, November 11: I am so happy and grateful to be an American! Not A Cuban-American, not an Italian-American, just an American. While I deeply love and respect my culture and heritage, I love the fact that people from every ethnicity and background can come to this country and be one. Not just on Veterans Day, not just on Independence Day, but every day I'm thankful. I remember the moment when I realized what a privilege it was/is to be an American. I spent my entire childhood reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every morning in school and listening to the National Anthem. But it was a cool December morning in 1985 that I stood on a grassy field, looking up at the American Flag as the National Anthem played at my graduation ceremony from Boot Camp for the United States Navy that the tears welled up in my eyes and I realized I was willing to die for my country. God Bless America.
Went to Golden Corral Restaurants for a great Veterans Day dinner - Thank you!

I just wanna say kudos to espn sportcenter for the special for Veterans Day! And it was amazing to actually be in the stands for the suprise they showed in Williams Brice Stadium before the SC vs GA game a year ago. Thanks again to all our servicemen and women for their daily sacrifice defending our freedom!
A few hours late on my Veterans Day social media post, but: "Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him." -Dwight D. Eisenhower
*** Sports Center just got me all choked up with their Military Coming home video. Veterans Day is celebrated once a year, but don't forget that active duty service members are Marines, Soldiers, Guardsman, Sailors or Airmen 365/24/7. Semper Fi.
As this Veterans Day draws to a close, I have paused to look back on the events of the day. I spent part of the day with fellow veterans at the American Legion Post that I belong to. Talked with friends. Visited a local cemetery and left a coin on each of the Veterans graves. The most memorable part of this day, though, was lunch. I went to a local Chili's restaurant. I was seated, by myself, and after ordering, I sat in reflection of the men and women that I had served and those that I lost while I was in the service. As I was sitting there, I looked over and there was an elderly couple and the gentleman nodded his head and asked how I was. I told him, "I am well, sir. Thank you. How are you?" He told me that he was well and then invited me to join him and his wife for lunch. I took him up on his offer and joined them. As we talked, I learned that he was a Marine Corps veteran that served in the Korean War. He had fought at Chosin Resevoir. We had an enjoyable lunch and great discussion about our times i ...
The Space Needle tonight for Veterans Day with the American Flag and blue legacy light. Very nice! http…
Hope every Dallas Cowboys fans out there had a good Veterans Day!
Shout outs to my Marine and musical brother Angel "Ocho" Ochoa.. we never served at the same time.. but if he was as good a Marine as he is a friend then I know he was a great Marine. Thank you for having my back bro, Happy Veterans Day. Semper Fi, Always Faithful, Siempre Fiel
Park's Air Force JROTC brought to life letters of soldiers Tuesday during its annual Veterans Day memorial service: http:/…
Since it's Veterans Day, thought ill watch Cadet Kelly lmao :)
Today is Veterans Day. About 72 years ago a very brave man left high school after his freshman year join the Navy. He served in the South Pacific throughout World War II. He was again called for service during the Korean War a few years later and he went even though he had two small children at home. It is difficult for me to understand the type of courage that it took to make such a life altering decision at such a young age. Perhaps then it is appropriate that today, Veterans Day, my family said their final goodbyes to my grandfather Herschel Wickett. We love you grandpa and thank you for all that you have done for us over the years we will miss you!
Tom and I went to Cleveland tonight, as usual we went to Golden Corral to eat, pulled into parking lot and were shocked at all the cars, we looked at each other and said what's going on? Then we realized it's Veterans Day, they're doing something special and boy was they. They fed all Veterans absolutely free,.
My great-great uncle survived the Bataan Death March in WWII. The things you learn on Veterans Day are amazing.
Wanted to share with everyone that Barry and I celebrated this Veterans Day at "Golden Corral" where they were serving all veterans with a free meal. We thought this was very good of them. Thanks to my hubby and all veterans who have served and are still giving their lives for our country. We pray that we will always have the freedoms that we enjoy today, thanks to our vets.
Thanks to Joseph Ferguson and his wife, Devon Jones, Michael Blair, Casey Blair and Brittany Walker for coming out and having a good convo and catching up over a free Veterans Day meal.
Thank you to Golden Corral and Mayville area for their Veterans Day service an lastly the student of Mayville for their appreciation today!
Veterans Day is about over and I enjoyed it alot.Shareing stories with my fellow vets and getting fatter in the process.My dad used to enjoy this day with his free meals and everybody shaking his hand and Thanking him for his service. I'll forever miss that. Thank you Applebees, Texasroadhouse, Olive Garden,Golden Corral, and last but not least Sheets whew I'm full.
Veterans Day is always emotional. The fact that that the device you are reading this is a testament to sacrifice. My great uncle Raymond Cassels passed away around 12hrs ago. 84 years passed. He served in the Korean War.
Shout out to the United States Marine Corp and all other branches of the U.S military!!! Thank you for serving and a Semper Fi salute to you for this Veterans Day!!!
We went to Golden Corral to eat for Veterans Day it was so wonderful to see all those that served our country in one place United and having such blessings of freindship and fellowship.I wish we could have took all our vets and military in our family tonight.
Enjoyed my Veterans Day meal Golden Corral of Danville Va. it was a huge turnout as always, boy scouts and the Hargrave Military Academy helped out, lots of thanks and love to those young gentlemen. Waited in line for about an hour but got to meet and chat with a few ole school vets that started it all for us babies as they were calling us lol. Enjoyed it all tho,
Well findly winding down, if I missed anybody I'm sorry but to everybody still Happy Veterans Day glad to be a part of it Semper Fi
30 days of thanksgiving, Veterans Day edition - I'm thankful for the veterans and active service men and women who serve this country, in spite of what I think about the politics of war. I'm especially thankful and proud of my great uncle Denzel McElvain, WW2 Army vet and POW survivor, and my dad Carl Manus, Navy vet from the Korean War. Thanks guys.
Wow, what a wonderful Veterans Day! Karen sacrificed what she had planned and catered to all my needs and desires today. Following my earlier heart-filled reflections, she helped me inventory and prepare my daily meds, went to the doc with me, helped me get two of my prescriptions filled, and then accompanied me to The Golden Corral for a wonderful complementary Veterans Day buffet! Sure beat this time forty-five years ago when I was trying to eat out of cans or a mess kit while dodging bullets, mortar rounds, and crashing helicopters! There were many seemingly happy vets there but far fewer my age. I keep looking around and seeing plenty of vets from their twenties to early to mid forties. Then, just as I realized I have a son in his mid forties an Old wrinkled white haired fella tapped me on the shoulder and proclaimed he had found another Nam Vet and thanked me for being there with him. I returned the appreciative gesture and rejoined my wife while thinking am i that old already? I excused my ...
How is country star Kellie Pickler celebrating Veterans Day? With her brand new album!
I have noticed this Veterans Day weekend that some of our brothers have been left out. I want to take this opportunity to thank them for their service and sacrifice. The men served in the Korean War. Thank You and Welcome Home, Brothers!
Nearing the end of 900+ page 'Truman' biography. After spending the day immersed in the Korean War, the Veterans Day Parade was especially moving.
