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.
The National Veteran's Art Museum in Chicago has an unusual work of art which you may not have even known existed! When visitors first enter the museum, they will hear a sound like wind chimes coming from above them and their attention will be drawn upward 24 feet to the ceiling of the two-story high atrium. The dog tags of the more than 58,000 service men and women who died in the Vietnam War, were hung from the ceiling of the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum in Chicago on Veterans Day, November 11, 2010. The 10-by-40-foot sculpture, entitled Above & Beyond, was designed by Ned Broderick and Richard Stein. The thousands of metal dog tags are suspended 24 feet in the air, 1 inch apart, from fine lines that allow them to move and chime with shifting air currents. Museum employees using a kiosk and laser pointer help visitors locate the exact dog tag with the imprinted name of a lost friend or relative. "If you can read this, thank a Teacher ... If you are reading it in English, thank a VET."
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.
Armistice Day (which coincides with Remembrance Day and Veterans Day, public holidays) is commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918.
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 ...

On November 11, 2013 Al Cecere and Challenger appeared on Fox News to talk about Veterans Day, and the activities they would be involved in during that time.
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.
SERVICE TALK SATURDAY 19TH JANUARY, 2013 ORIGIN OF THE NIGERIAN ARMED FORCES Remembrance Day The 15th of January every year, is set aside as the Nigerian Armed Forces Remembrance Day. This was because it was on this date in 1966 that the first shots were fired at Garkem, a community in the present Cross River State by troops deployed on what was originally decided as a police action to stem a violent crisis, which however unfortunately degenerated into a full scale civil war that lasted from 1967 to 1970. However, the practice of celebrating the Armed Forces Remembrance Day is not peculiar to Nigeria. It is known by other names in other parts of the world as Remembrance Day, Poppy Day, Veterans Day, Memorial Day and Armistice Day. The origin dates back to the First World War of 1914 to 1918 in which most of the battles were fought in the fields of Flanders. Flanders is a region of Europe that forms parts of Belgium and France. In early days in Nigeria, the Remembrance Day was observed on the 11th day of N ...

What are you waiting for now? Columbus Day is over, Halloween is over, Veterans Day is over, Thanksgiving Day is over, Christmas is over or for some Hanuka, what excuse is it now? Oh yea, its New Years next Wednesday. or maybe Presidents Day or maybe Valentines in February or _ birthday, really! If you don't do something different Today, 2014 is going to look pretty much like 2013. There will always be holidays, events, the big blue tube, oh and people to distract you!

Need to clean out and organize the spare bedrooms, which I meant to do last summer, put it off, then Columbus Day and Veterans Day weekend, again I put it off, and again during the thanks giving break. Never thought I'd see the day when I wish mom could holler at me for not picking up after myself. Maybe when she and dad come for a visit they will lecture me :-)
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 ...

Austin singing his veterans day song!
Happy Veterans Day to all my fellow Veterans!! Thank you for your service!
Yes, we have Veterans Day in the fall, and Memorial Day in the spring. But our service men and women sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year, to preserve our freedoms. At many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving, or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country. We honor our veterans every day. And we think there is no better time to express our apprecation, than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. We hope you will join us at any of our 700+ participating locations, to show our veterans and their families - that we will not forget. We will never forget. There are a number of ways for volunteers to get involved. Please keep in mind there is NO COST to attend or participate in a Wreaths Across America™ event.on 14th December at one near you.

.good Morning Nation...I got a fabulous sense of excitement in my aura today after waking up 2 different earlier times this morning but deciding to go back to sleep...and that's unusual for me... 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... ...

I may get comments calling me ungrateful for enjoying the freedoms that soldiers go off to defend on America's behalf, but I got an interesting email today from a War Veteran and I want to share what he said. Believe it or not, he just emailed me this out of the blue, I had not asked him about this at all. This was his email: "Only twice have I been downtown Manhattan on Veterans Day, since I was discharged in 1955. The first time was to see what the parade was like, 2nd time was to march with the Vietnam Veterans against the War. I am a Korean War Veteran who learned my lesson, and now I am against all wars. I became a lifetime Member of the VVAW. I just hope soldiers returning home will see the folly of their going to war, and stand with people in a peaceful revolution." - Mr. Hall (Queens, NY) I've made his email shorter, but that's the main gist of it.

Last night, drove down Broad St West Hazleton/Hazleton. Mentioned this in past, but must say again--how elegant and pretty the Christmas lights on all the trees look down the entire expanse of the street (they were not also on the West Hazleton part of the street last I was there--but are now--terrific!!!). Broad St doesn't necessarily look so hot in the light of day (though better than years past with the new banners, new street lights, road, etc.)--still too many dilapidated buildings/filthy windows, etc. BUT in the nighttime, it REALLY looks great this holiday season--best I recall in decades in fact--I smile driving down it. Leads me to this: OK, the city isn't the same as Paris (the REAL "city of lights", but maybe Hazleton could become its own version of the city of lights/ALWAYS be pretty to drive down in the evening. Maybe there could be lights on the trees that line the roads all year long, colors changing with the seasons: From May (Memorial Day) to Nov (Veterans Day) which covers July 4th, have ...

God bless all our Veterans; not just today, or Memorial Day, or Veterans Day, but everyday. - Sometimes I'm asked which I like best of all the pieces I've written. I guess the answer is something I wrote one night back in 1945, on the island of Guam. It was never published; I didn't even sign it; but it was more rewarding than anything else I've ever done. Guam was our base in the Marianas from which the B-29's took off for their nightly incendiary raids on Japan. As an Air Force colonel, I had flown with them, and I knew what those missions were like. The seven endless hours over the Pacific to the hostile coastline. The wink of ack-ack guns and the flack bursts all around us, the ground searchlights that lighted up our cabin ...

I am personally looking forward to the "Look Back in Time" event, when I will hear all the great old stories our veterans will tell for us, the Honor Guard and the presentation of the American Eagle Award all on Saturday, Nov. 9. We are delighted to present the award this year to Seaman 2nd Class Charlie Green for his service to his country in the Navy in World War II. Charlie survived the bombing of Pearl Harbor on the U.S.S. Curtis on Dec. 7, 1941, then fought in the Pacific isles, Okinawa, Iwo Jima and the Philippines, and also served during the Korean conflict. We are so proud to have this opportunity to express our great gratitude to Charlie and the many others that he represents. We thank you all for your great sacrifice and know that you will always deserve our highest regard and respect for your service. Some people may believe that Veterans Day sort of takes away from the holiday spirit of Thanks ...

So I just got back from three cathartic weeks in Vietnam and feel compelled to say something profound but words aren't sufficient and don't come easily. Horror, confusion, misunderstanding, sacrifice, bravery, honor, profound sadness are but a few reflections during Veterans Day there. Like so many things in life, we may never know the whole truth, only those pieces we experience, discover and relive as the days, months, and years pass. Had we only known then what we know today. Life is like that. I was most surprised by the spontaneous emotions and unstoppable tears that came to me almost 50 years later when visiting the Hanoi Hilton or walking through the jungle with the live sound of actual AK47's being fired in the background at the range. Knowing that the enemy could pop out of underground tunnels at any moment and shoot you from any angle (if you didn't first fall into a deadly booby trap or step on a mine) does something to your mind. And I was only there for a few hours, not months! Again my ...
VETERANS/PRISONERS: Veterans Day just passed. And we celebrated acknowlegement of their day. What a Parade, a few speeches, handshakes, pat on the backs, and then what? see ya next year. Come on for real thats all their worth? Thats their appreciation. Ignored, taken for granted, all the promises broken, what dreams, I have no home to dream in, I have no job to even builds a foundation with, my family do not understand, how can they show sympathy or empathy when they can not see the demons that hunt me in my dreams. So, I drown them with alcohol, drugs, or sometimes a bullet. "A certain number of Veterans suffering from Mental Health issues will, inveribly, end up in jail or prison. After Vietnam, the number of inmates with prior military service rose steadily until reaching a peak in1985, when more than 1 out of 5 was a veteran. By 1988, more than half of all vietnam Veterans diagnosed with PTSD reported that they had been arrested; more than one third had been arrested multiple times. Today Veterans Ad ...

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. Armistice Day was a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954 President Eisenhower officially changed A...
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.

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 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.

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.

Touching story about Veterans Day. Reminder of the importance to take the time to say thanks. .
It is with sadness in my heart that I share my dad's passing last night. He died peacefully with mom and I at his side after being removed from a ventilator. He left his body to LSU school of science. A military Honor Guard stood at attention as his body left St. Tammany hospital; a very meaningful end to Veterans Day.

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. Announced ahead of the U.S. Veterans Day holiday on ...

My father and I want to sincerely thank the Collier County Honor Flight team for all they did (in 3 months) to make our Veterans Day trip to Washington DC a wonderful day to remember for 52 war veterans and 57 guardians, one of which was me. He was so happy to finally see the War Memorials while he was able to appreciate them and what they stand for. This is my father, James L. Helms, and me in our capitol. IN GOD WE TRUST! ~~ Soul to Souls ~~

'Veterans Day ‘Lest we forget’ – The Irish who died in World War One Remembering the 35,000 Irishmen who gave their lives during the ‘war to end all wars’. "It has been calculated that 210,000 Irishmen served in the British forces during World War I, with 140,000 volunteering to fight. In all 35,000 Irishmen died. The Irish enlisted in the war for various reasons including to fight for the justice of the cause. However, Ireland during 1914 was deeply divided between nationalist and unionist political groups and more local considerations played a role in signing up. Among those who signed up was Tom Barry, who later became an IRA commander. He enlisted in the British army in June 1915 “to see what war was like, to get a gun, to see new countries and to feel like a grown man” according to the BBC. For other Irishmen who signed up money was the major motive. James Connolly, the revolutionary, said Irishmen had no choice but to sign up with employment prospects so bleak in Ireland at the time. O ...

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!
