I really try to be a open minded individual but I'm completely outraged today. Marshall University did not do anything on 9/11. Not a moment of silence, assembly, absolutely NOTHING. But they celebrate national Saudi Arabia Day? I think it's educational to show diversity to students. I'm all for that actually. But to do this and NOTHING for 9/11? I cannot reiterate that enough. It's completely ABSURD. -Sincerely, a disappointed Marshall Student. P.S. Maybe on Veterans Day, Marshall will honor the Islamic Military. Former Chief Justice John Marshall would be all for that. Don't you think?
Hey guys, I served with the 503rd from 2003-2006 which included service in Korea and Iraq. I am currently back in school at USC, and somehow became one of the leaders of its Student Veteran Association. We are currently in search of a speaker for our Veterans Day event at the University of Southern California (USC). We want to honor a few distinguished soldiers and I need your help to locate them. Anyone located in the los angeles area, or has any connection to anyone that would be able to assist us- please get in contact with me. You can message me here or to my email mmspirtoand i would be happy to share more information for this event. We are highly interest in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam veterans but all are invited to join the day on campus. It looks to be an occasion for the record books, we just need your help to inform todays students of our nations Veterans. Thank brothers, First Rock!
Do you know any Upstaters who fought at Chosin Reservoir? I'd love to interview them for Veterans Day.
Every day is Armed Forces Day. Especially Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Veterans Day. Then there's
Laurence we hold a Veterans Day mon after Armed forces day if you ever fancy it?
We got our school calendars today. We're not off on Veterans Day, but ya know we HAVE to be off on Martin Luther King Day 😒😒😒
Do only Irish people march on St. Pat's day? Only *** people in Pride parade? Only vets on Veterans Day?
Yeah, I'll probably have to do that too in JROTC, plus the Veterans Day Parade 😪
American Village, do our children know all of the words to the songs on Frozen? What about Taylor Swift's latest hit? Now answer this. Do they know the words to America the Beautiful, God Bless America, or the national anthem? Do they know why we say the Pledge of Allegiance? Do they know that the moment of silence at school is a FREEDOM to choose to pray? (Or not?) Do they know that people sacrifice daily so that they have the freedom to choose what they want to eat and throw half of it in the trash? Do they know what the word "patriotism" means? No child is too young to learn, and when they are too old, they don't care. And we wonder why half of the world hates us. For Americans, EVERY day is Independence Day and every day should be Veterans Day.
So I work for a medical marijuana office and we are making a float for the Veterans Day Parade. I need ideas please!!

I like to make an announcement: As of today; after over 13 years together and nearly 12 years after our wedding ceremony, Edward Hargis and I are legally married! I would like to thank everyone who helped us throughout the years. Without your help and support through voting and your activism this would still not be possible. Sometimes it's easy to forget our history and wonder why we "Flaunt" our sexual orientation with celebrations like Pride Fest. Simply like many other celebrations thoughout the year; Cinco de Mayo, St Patrick's Day, Martin Luther King, Veterans Day. It's because we must remind ourselves of the trials and tribulations of the many repressed people that came before us and what they went through, and some even died for, to create the acceptance of our diversity that we all enjoy today. Thank you.

I've seen this on a few *** s pages. Share around to spread the truth. The photograph shown here was indeed taken on Veterans Day in 2011, but the event which the Obamas were pictured was actually an NCAA basketball game between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Michigan State Spartans which was held in the evening on board the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson. The game was briefly interrupted at sunset to observe the nightly retiring of the colors tradition, during which official White House photographer Pete Souza snapped this photograph of President Obama raising his hand to his heart. However, this photo does not show First Lady Michelle Obama ignoring standard flag protocol and declining to place her hand over her heart during the ceremony; the image displayed above has been misleadingly cropped to create that false impression. The full photograph shows no one present other than President Obama — not military personnel, not basketball players, not spectators — saluting the flag or placing th . ...
Hi Folks, As some of you are aware, our colleagues in the Patrick Sarsfield Branch of the O.N.E. organised a very successful Veterans Day in Limerick last weekend. Tonight on Irish TV on Sky Channel 191 at 19:00hrs you can watch this event. This event was attended by Veterans organisations from not only around Ireland but from around the World, including our sister organisation the Royal British Legion and the American Legion.

A CANNON’S JOURNEY Veteran’s Day 1999, more than 250 people are gathered in front of Harrisonburg High School in Harrisonburg Virginia waiting for the annual Veterans Day ceremony to begin. But this ceremony is special. This is the day that a captured German WW1, 210 mm. cannon is to be fired for the first time in more than 80 years. The crowd anxiously awaits as the clock ticks to exactly 11:AM. Members of Harrisonburg VFW Post 632 hold their breath, and cross their fingers hoping nothing goes wrong. A thunderous BOOM shatters the autumn air as one pound of black powder and 4 pounds of flare (for affect), exceeds all expectations.

I copied this from VAs page on the origins of Memorial Day. I think many people have it confused with Veterans Day. I served and love honoring those who have served; however, Memorial Day is for those who met with the ULTIMATE sacrifice in giving their lives. Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30. It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. The ceremonies centered around the mourning-draped veranda of the Arlington mansion, once the home of Gen. Robert E. Lee. Various Washington officials, including Gen. and Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant, presided over t ...

Last year I spent Memorial Day in training at Fort Leonard Wood. This year I have time to reflect in private. Memorial Day is not about having a day off or barbecues. It's about remembering those who lost their life while serving our country. Some get today confused with Veterans Day and also take for granted the real meaning behind this important day. Today I remember CW2 Matt Heffelfinger, CW2 Earl Scott and PFC Casey Mason. Each day, I hope that the families of these great men heal a little more. Tanya Heffelfinger, you and your beautiful daughters are some of the strongest ladies I know. I'm proud to call these men my brothers in arms.
From a vet friend of mine: "Today is not Veterans Day. It is Memorial Day. Memorial Day is when we remember those who served who never got to become Veterans. It's not a "happy" day. It's not a day to thank those of us who did come home for our service. It is a day set aside to remember the fallen." RIP. And thanks and hugs to the families who survived them and managed to make it through this day every year since.
Do you know the difference between Veteran's day and Memorial Day? Memorial Day started in the 1860's in various towns as a day to remember and honor the soldiers who died in the Civil War. It was originally called Dedication Day. In 1868, the first official military proclamation of the day was given, and flowers were put at the graves at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to recognize Memorial Day as a holiday was New York in 1873. Eventually all the Northern states adopted it in the late 1800s, while the the Southern states had other days for honoring Confederate war dead. In 1971, Congress set the official date of Memorial Day to be the last Monday in May. Veterans Day, which is celebrated November 11 of each year, is set aside to honor all veterans, both living and dead. It was first called Armistice Day, to celebrate the day when WWI was ended with the signing of an armistice on November 11, 1918. After WWII, the holiday changed to honor all veterans rather than remember the peace and the s ...
This morning after my Q and A I will host a Veterans Day gathering and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all those reading this page who have loved ones who gave their lives so that we have the freedom of expression and the freedom to live our lives as we do. And to those of you who are serving or have loved ones who are today I salute you and send you my most heartfelt thanks.
Almost 15 years ago, as a concerned citizen, I sent letters to Republican and Democrat congressmen and senators, expressing moral outrage as to the care of our veterans and their families. I included information on the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE ACCORD (USA)--as written below--and THE Purple Heart HEALTH CARD. I would keep sending this to different elected officials over the years. I also found a related letter (below), dated November 10, 2003, to all of the associates at our family manufacturing company on the occasion of the Marine Corps’ Birthday and Veterans Day. The proposed Purple Heart HEALTH CARD would be issued to all veterans who were injured in combat and received a Purple Heart medal. They could take this card to any health care provider in America—from Walgreen's to the Mayo Clinic—and receive anything from aspirin to brain surgery in order to help in their recovery and healing. A grateful nation would pick up the tab. The ULTIMATE SACRIFICE ACCORD would provide an education for the survivors o ...
MetroNews Morning News Headlines: It's a day set aside to pay tribute to those who died in military service to the country. Ceremonies are planned all across the state today to honor West Virginia's war dead, including a parade in Grafton. The 147th Memorial Day service at he National Cemetery in Taylor County was held on Sunday. The place which probably honors the most West Virginia vets killed in action is closed this Memorial Day. There are 10,000 names etched in the granite of the state Veterans Memorial at the Capitol Complex. However, the memorial is undergoing renovation and not open today. The goal is to have it ready by Veterans Day in November. President Obama paid a surprise visit to 32,000 troops serving in Afghanistan on Sunday. Along with him on the trip, West Virginia native Brad Paisley who performed a litany of his hits for the troops. Two shootings in as many nights are under investigation at Myrtle Beach.

Such an interesting post from Eileen Dreyer regarding Memorial Day... Eileen says, "Just a reminder from my brother the Nam Vet. It's wonderful that people are honoring vets this weekend, but this weekend is specifically for those who gave their full measure. It is to remember the dead, those who fell crossing that terrible field in Gettysburg, the wastelands of Ypres, that abattoir of a beach in Normandy, who died holding a frozen valley in Korea and hilltop LZ in Nam and outpost in Afghanistan. We honor the living vets on Veterans Day. Save this day, Memorial Day, for those any vet will tell you are the real heroes. The ones who didn't come home." In the old days, this was called Decoration Day, and I remember my mother telling stories about decorating the graves of the fallen at the Quaker cemetery near her home.

World War II links two vets forever, heroic actions of third long remembered From the Chippewa Herald Originally published on: November 11, 2012 9:00 am • By THOMAS CHISHOLM | For the Herald (Ed. note: In honor of Veterans Day, Tom Chisholm has written a story of his older brother Dave, Rudolph Broedlow and Charles Mower, all from Chippewa Falls and all three playing roles in helping our country win World War II. The story shines a light on a largely forgotten WWII campaign to free Italy from the grip of Nazi Germany. Sgt. Mower was a soldier in the U.S. Army and only 19 years old when, despite being wounded, he took command of his squad in the Philippines when the leader was killed. Mower was killed in the battle, and in 1946 was posthumously awarded the military's highest decoration, the Medal of Honor. Dave Chisholm — now 89 and living in Syracuse, N.Y. — was well acquainted with Mower. But he didn’t meet Col. Broedlow until August 1942 when the division was training in Oregon. Tom asserts th . ...
I've been home from Afghanistan for just over 4 years now; Wow time flies. Lets be honest, not every soldier that deploys is fixing bayonets and punching insurgents bare handed, coming home with war trophies and getting PTSD from killing multiple targets up close and personal. We fight a different type of war now and there are many jobs needed to do so. I know this is Memorial Day weekend and a post like this is tailored more towards Veterans Day. I just wanted to share a story. I deployed with 1/221 CAV as part of a Joint Task Force in the efforts to help reconstruct a portion of the Paktya province of Afghanistan.

Quick rant here I always find it both ironic and disturbing to watch people get all ramped up and drunk to celebrate Cinco de mayo. Seriously , Mexico defeating France in 1810 , by the way in sept of that yr not may has in any way made our way of life better, made us safer , gave us freedom . I think it's sad when most Americans couldn't even tell you the month of Veterans Day much less the actual date it's observed. 9700 Americans wounded and 1100 killed fighting the Germans in Belleau woods France to defeat the Germans 2500 Americans die at KheSahn defeating the NVA in Vietnam 10,000 on the first day of the landing at Normandy beach 7000 Americans killed on Iwo Jima kicking the crap out of the Imperial Japanese army and basicly sealing the deal on WWII and the list goes on and on .Sacrafices made to ensure our freedom battles fought so we can feel safe .

Marlborough said good-bye this week to one of her biggest cheerleaders. Most people remember John Noble from his days at Concannon's, the Main Street store which he owned for many years, but John was involved in numerous civic groups and organizations around the city. He was also a true American hero and was awarded the Purple Heart for injuries he suffered during the Battle of the Bulge in World War 2. We spoke with John in 2009 and he gave us a first hand account of this horrific and tragic scene as part of a Veterans Day special we aired. You can watch the interview below. There's no doubt John will be missed, but the impact he had on Marlborough will surely last for generations to come.

You know every year when it comes around to Independents Day and Veterans Day we always leave comments on here thanking the men and women who fight for our freedom. But, at this time I actually would like to say thanks to all the people past and present who has or is serving for our country, were it not for you people then we would not have the freedom we have today. I salute each and every one of you and say I wish any of you that might be over seas a safe trip home physically and mentally. God Bless The United States Armed Forces.

If you didn't know... Now you do! History of Veterans Day: World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” - officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.” Veterans Day has since always been on 11-11; enacted by President Woodrow Wilson!

We did it again, for the second year in a row our lodge has a first place winner in New York State for The Elks Americanism Essay Contest. This years topic was "What does Veterans Day Mean To Me."

Joe Cammarata, Americanism Chairman.
So my uncle Joseph went out to eat around 7 last night and the following is his story... "Went to the Boiler Room Steakhouse for a birthday meal. I was very surprised when this obese waitress giving poor service told me they never provided military discounts but only provide one free meal on veterans day and will be stopping that. I had mentioned the last few times I have been there they had provided the discount. She continued to be argumentative and stated that the current management desires to have anyone who is serving or has served to ever step foot in their establishment as the current management does not believe in anything the military stands for. I promised I would pass the word along." I really hope this was a misunderstanding. I am also wondering what the new management team's stance is on the military. I know few hundred fellow active duty and veterans in this town that would also like to know...plus their families and friends. If this was a mistake or just the words of one person then that pe ...

Good Morning, Fairview - is it finally Spring?! I saw yesterday that Hines Farms had their hanging baskets out! So glad to see warmer weather, and I do hope that the detours for traffic around the bridge replacement project are improving! Went to a funeral last week for a World War II veteran and the graveside service had the full military rites with the 21 gun salute and taps. The shell casings as well as the flag were presented to the family. The first round of the salute was for duty, the second for honor, and the third for country. Even though it is not Veterans Day or Memorial Day, I want to say a special thank you to all our veterans for protecting our freedom and our democracy. Stay safe, Fairview.

While at the Highlands County Veteran Services Office today to turn in my husband, Ed's death certificate, the director asked Jack to sing when she found out he retired from the United States Army Field Band and Soldiers Chorus.

I hope all of you that live here can attend the ceremony at Lakeview Memorial Garden on May 26th at 9am.

Veterans Day with a visit from the Patriot Guard Riders
I know west wing is a fictitious show written by overly idealistic liberals, but there are few episodes that do not make me cry or think, sometimes both. The thing that I truly love is all the episodes that highlight the voluntary risks that soldiers are put through and the decisions made behind closed doors that ask these soldiers to leave their homes and families for ideas. I hope someday our soldiers will no longer be needed to make these sacrifices, but until that day whether it's Veterans Day, Memorial Day or whatever soldiers should always be in our thoughts rather than our complaints because they are the ones taking a bullet for next to no money or job security. Their health benefits are not guaranteed nor is old age. I admire soldiers like my father and his friends and wish more people would.

Draw Near – 365 Guides to Greater Intimacy with God Day 53 of 365 SOLDIER In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as Armistice Day to remind Americans of the tragedies of war. In 1971, Congress changed the date to the fourth Monday in October and the name to Veterans Day. Canada has set aside a similar day (Remembrance Day) on November 11. Both countries seek to show appreciation for all who have given their service and their lives for the lands we love. It is sad that there even have to be veterans. Veterans are made by wars, and wars mar the history of mankind. Yet war will be with us as long as man is in rebellion against God. Paul talks about another war being waged in the spirit world. The forces of Satan are pitted against the forces of our Lord and Christ. Paul admonished Timothy to be a good soldier for Christ and to endure hardship. Christ never promised roses on the battlefields. We are involved in an intense spiritual warfare, and we all at times get weary. When it seems Sata ...
Armistice Day Blizzard of November 10-11, 1940 Minnesota's deadliest blizzard on record occurred on Nov. 10-11th, 1940. No other snowstorm in Minnesota lore holds as revered a status as this one. Many of the 154 who died in this blizzard were duck hunters who were taking advantage of the Armistice Day (now known as Veterans Day) holiday and unusually mild late season weather to pursue their hobby. A classic Texas Panhandle low developed on Nov. 10th and traveled northeastward deepening to 971mb (28.65") over Wisconsin on Nov. 11th. In Minnesota temperatures dropped 50 degrees in hours and 50-80mph winds drove 12-27" of snow into monstrous drifts up to 20 feet deep.
Switch out the Russian sentiment for American sentiment. Black, White, Red, Blue, or Green. Asian, African, Mexican, or Pacific Islander. If you are here and enjoying your American way of life, then march in step. Toe the line. This is America and we should all be Americans first; proud of the colors we fly, loyal to the troops who defend them, and brave enough to say so. Please feel free to share you cultural differences whenever you like so long as they do not get in the way of the fact that you are an American. Every day should be Veterans Day!!
I can understand the purpose of many American holidays. I can see why we have Labor Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Martin Luther King Day and Independence Day. I can not however, see any need for Presidents' Day. What is the point? What is it that we are supposed to be observing today?
Good evening FBF, hope all is well. Well after a long road from losing the Capitol Classic in 2013 to Ft. Bragg my first team before going to Leonard Wood and now here at Ft. Myers. Our goals have been accomplished, the road to this point was hard but nevertheless we did it. Started out by winning the Breast Cancer in MD tournament,Veterans Day tournament at Ft. Belvoir Toys for Tots tournament at Ft Myers , MLK Tournament at Ft. Lee and not the Capitol Classic at Ft Myers the biggest tournament of the year. This has been a hard journey beating some of the best teams. Had to get past a Trashing talking Ft. Carson team via email and text message only to send them back on the plane back to Colorado empty handed welcoming them to the east coast the right way and taking care of business, then onto our rivals the best team next to us in the tournament in Ft. Bragg, pulled it out to face Camp Laijune and beat them only to face Bragg in the championship game. Knowing that it would go down to the wire, we stepped ...
President's Day, my least favorite holiday. Used to be nice when I was in school and we got off Washington's birthday and I was always envious of the Illinois kids who got off Lincoln's too. Just why was it necessary to add all the other presidents? Who has been so impressive since WWII that we needed to make it Presidents Day? Nixon, Eisenhower? Surely not Johnson or the Bushes. Couldn't leave well enough alone , could we. Now we are honoring them all. That means Coolidge and Hoover and Harrison and Buchanan and even Harding. We should have learned when we changed Armistice Day to Veteran's Day. Was that to honor me since I am a veteran? Or the Company clerk at Ft Huachucha? Vonnegut said Armistice Day was sacred, Veterans Day is not. Same goes for Washington's Birthday and President's Day. Hope you all get a whale of a deal at the furniture outlet on their big President's Day sale. WE have some *** holidays.
11/11/11 Veterans Day, formerly Armistice Day, is an annual United States holiday honoring military veterans.It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It coincides withother holidays such as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, which are celebratedin other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the signing of theArmistice that ended World War 1. (Major hostilities of World War I wereformally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 withthe German signing of the Armistice.) . The U.S. President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day for November 11, 1919. In proclaimingthe holiday, he said “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled withsolemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and withgratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed usand because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy withpeace and justice in the councils of the nations.” T ...
Every Day is Veterans Day: Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders made the case in a Senate floor speech on Tuesday for passage of the most comprehensive legislation for veterans to come before the Senate in decades. Sanders’ bill would improve VA health care and dental care, expand educational opportunities, help the VA address a disability claims backlog and help veterans find jobs. The measure also would undo a 1 percentage point cut in annual cost-of-living adjustments for military pensions that was part of a budget agreement late last year. It is backed by the American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and many other organizations. Watch Sen. Sanders' speech here:

I first met Eustace in person at an American Free Press event in Washington, DC around September, 2006 and invited him to our Constitution Party meeting that happened to fall on Veterans Day a few months later. I drove down to his house on Madison Place in Staunton, VA, and apologized for the interior of my old Volvo being so ratty. Eustace instead asked me to drive one of his Cadillacs to the meeting - he had matching white and black ones. So, I drove his black one. The powers that be had pulled about the same thing on Eustace as they had on Ezra Pound - declared him mentally unfit to operate a motor vehicle. It was a memorable drive and meeting where Eustace told all kinds of very interesting stories, particularly about living in the Library of Congress, and signed his books for us. When we got back to his town, we had dinner together at the local *** Barrel and one of his nephews saw him, but the relationship sadly seemed rather aloof. This might have been the same nephew who, after his passing, w ...

PINS Free day. (Corpus Christi, Texas)- Acting Superintendent Travis Poulson announced today that the National Park Service, in order to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, will waive the entrance fee to visit Padre Island National Seashore on Monday, January 20, 2014. All of America’s 400 other national park sites will have free entry as well. Residents and out of town visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to visit this remarkable coastal park at no cost and explore a portion of the world’s longest undeveloped barrier island beach. Be advised that activity fees for Malaquite Campground and Bird Island Basin still apply. In addition to Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the National Park Service will waive admission fees on eight other days in 2014 – Presidents Day weekend (February 15 through 17), the first weekend of National Park Week (April 19 and 20), the National Park Service’s 98th birthday (August 25), National Public Lands Day (September 27) and Veterans Day (Nove ...
I apologize for posting more stuff about veterans, but like Natasha Leggero, I'm not sorry. I was thinking to myself during the drive to work, "Every day should be Veterans Day. We take the sacrifice for granted when we have the freedom to complain about the small things. Out of site. Out of mind."
Obama shows his true colors by not going to Arlington National Cemetery? Sadly, the days we set aside to honor those who have worn the uniform of our country — and made the ultimate sacrifice — have become highly politicized. There is an expectation that presidents should go to Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial and Veterans Day. Certainly, any commander-in-chief should mark these sacred days in such fashion. But paying tribute to those whose final resting place is in any other of America's other 130 national cemeteries is no less honorable. That being said, the tradition of going to Arlington itself on Memorial Day is fairly new. Most presidents never, or rarely, went. Let's look at the past six decades: · Eisenhower: Twice in eight years · Kennedy: Never in three years · Johnson: Once in five years · Nixon: Never in six years · Ford: Twice in two years · Carter: Never in four years · Reagan: Three times in eight years · Bush Sr.: Never in four years · Clinton: Eight times in eight year ...
I am so blessed to know people like John Stewart. He has witnessed what popular politics are doing to real people. One day, when your bull is gored, you will see why I HATE your politics. It hurts real people. Here is his latest post: Why??? 40% of New York City Vets Going Hungry According to a report by CBS News in New York City, veterans who are returning to New York City after leaving the service are relying on soup kitchens and pantries to get the food they need. The president and CEO of the Food Bank for New York City, Margarette Purvis, used the occasion of Veterans Day to emphasize the plight of these veterans. In a statement, she said that 95,000 veterans, or 40 percent of New York City’s veteran population are going hungry. “That is not a guesstimate; that is a fact,” she said. She added that with the $5 billion cut in funding for the federal government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) the situation will only get worse. (Enlarge that over the entire U.S. and we have a se ...
Veterans Day was an opportunity for all Americans to thank and honor the country's selfless soldiers. It also was a day of increased hunger and requests for help from charities like Feed Our Vets after nearly 1 million low-income veterans had their food stamps cut by Congress. The Nov. 1 budget cut affected more than 900,000 veterans who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, according to the Center on Budget and Polity Priorities. Feed our Vets, an organization dedicated to eradicating hunger among American veterans, now expects an increase in requests for food.

Watching Forest Gump and just wanted to inform some of you soldier, sailors, airmen, and marines of Lt. Dan( Gary Sinise). He has the gary Sinise foundation that does so much for the troops and he doesn't brag or boast about it for media attention or handshakes and hugs. He helps build homes for wounded warriors he gives out suits on Veterans Day to active duty troops through jos. A. Bank and tons of other stuff. So next time you donate to a cause or just feel like helping look into the gary Sinise foundation, good night all.

Day 14: The phrase "Freedom isn't free" gets a lot of airtime during Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Veterans Day. But the families of those who made the greatest sacrifice for our freedom deal with the cost every day. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) was founded in 1980 to provide support and assistance to the U. S. military's special operations community, which consist Army Special Forces (Green Berets), the Army's 75th Ranger Regiment, the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, Navy Small Boat Teams, Navy SEALs, Air Force Combat Controllers, Air Force rotary and fixed wing squadrons, and Marine Corps special operations personnel. SOWF's mission includes two major aspects in support of special operations personnel: providing a full college education to the surviving children of those who lose their lives while serving in the U.S. military special operations community, and providing immediate financial assistance and support to ensure that severely wounded personnel are able to .. ...

In honor of Veterans Day on Monday, November 11, Keystone Wounded Warriors would like to share an exclusive interview of Paul Spurgin, co-founder and director of KWW. In his insightful interview with Berks Career & Technology Center (BCTC), Paul describes the mission of Keystone Wounded Warriors and encourages the public to consider volunteering time to KWW and other service organizations, such as Wreaths Across America, American Legion, The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. (VFW), and Disabled American Veterans (DAV). With Veterans Day approaching, Paul encourages the public, especially younger society, to remember the sacrifices made by our current and former service men & women. Extending a simple "thank you" to our military personnel is the least we can do to honor the sacrifices they made for our freedom.
I grew up in the '60's and '70's. While the world today is not quite as alien as "The Jetsons" anticipated, it's pretty close. Here are truths about when I grew up. Here are a few random remembered observations. Wherever we lived, there was that one field in the neighborhood that served for football baseball, dodge ball, and everything else... and if you were a parent looking for your children, that's the first place to check. We were told that "Negroes are just as good as we white folks, only different" by our parents. Some other kids were told that blacks were the inferior race. Just saying what we were told. When we had Veterans Day Parades when I was in high school, only two Vietnam vets would walk in them... the bitter men who wore their old uniforms covered with peace signs and carried that black "POW-MIA" flag. Everybody looked down when they walked past, and muttered things like "that's too bad". Herpes was the worst sort of VD. Rod Stewart, David Bowie and Queen fell from grace and put out Disco ...

At our local supermarket the weekend before Veterans Day, veterans were handing out little red poppies to pin on passersby’s lapels as tributes to generations of war dead (it’s a reference to John McCrae’s 1915 WWI poem, “In Flanders Fields”).

I like to get that 1st minute going, take care of some personal businesses, so for me to go back to sleep on a day the sun was shining was not like the me that. Started working on a better me on Jan 1 2013... I had promised myself and my mind... if they would listen to my heart ...nothing would be impossible. My heart set the sails of my life this year, and reset them daily...very focused on the goals I had set...even hourly I let my heart reset the sails...if I am straying off focus. Realizing to serve the many is my goal, I picked mentors who did so also...and were better at it than me. and thru working harder in one lap around the sun than I have in the previous 57 laps...I have accomplished much and served many... But along the way people were hurt...because I did not focus on them...focus means one thing... ...
