11-11-11

Guess what????????
Do you know what 11-11-11 is?
Nope, it aint the combination to the safe in the basement......wrong....
Nope, it aint my measurements.........wrong...
I'll give you a minute ..............
It's the date of Veterans Day. It is the date that we honor all our veterans for their service to this great nation.
For myself, I will be on the bridge with my colors honoring the great servers of our nation. This time I will refrain from letting some person, shall we say, ''get to me'' in that I may lose my temper and speak Sailor for some reason. I am considering ''Jack in a Sack'' to keep me calm but I would have to call Willa to drive me home later. Instead, I will just be cool and honor out Veterans on their special day.
This I would ask of everyone. Wear a flag pin on your lapel to honor the Vets that gave you this wonderful country.
When you see a Veteran at a parade or on the street tell that person ''Thank you for your service to this country''
Take a minute and remember the thousands and thousands that never came home from the wars we have fought all over the world. Remember Arlington National Cemetery and the honored Tomb of the Unknown and all the men and women that have given all that we can have this freedoms we so often take so lightly. They died for us and we should honor them this and every day.
Nuff said for now ....

God give a special blessing to those who served and those serving now.

My flag flys every day and over my campsite when on the road. Every year I join other vets in a prayer breakfast but will miss it this year. My job changed and I will not be able to attend.

However, Seajay you have inspired me. I have 4 former Navy working for me at my new site. I think I will take them to breakfast and start a new tradition.

We have a lot to be thankful for thanks to all who served and especially for those that did not come home. The term ultimate sacrifice is use to casualy. Thanks Seajay for reminding me to take the time to honor all who servered!

God Bless!!!

On November 11 in Canada almost every town holds a "Remembrance Day Service" at facilities all over town. Last year I got to place the Tri-Services wreath at the cenotaph in honour of our vets from all wars.

Port Alberni had over 1000 people at our ceremonial to honour the war veterans and then most return to work for the balance of the day.

Remembering our vets may help people remember the reason for having an armed service.

I will remember.

Last Friday we went to a pretty good sized town function where they had the vets stand up in front while we did the Pledge and sang the national anthem (NOT performed like the announcer says at most sporting events - grist for another thread!!). There aren't many of us now, but it encompassed WWll, Korea, and through the current conflicts - I'm Viet Nam era. Our town of 38,000 usually recognizes returning soldiers at an official town hall affair and presents a plaque for their service.

In many cases the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month(1918) is pretty much forgotten by most folks. It seems that since so many schools are (re)writing their history books, that lots of tradition has been dropped (also the subject of yet another thread).

My daily driver F350, up until about a week or two ago when it peeled off carries a flag decal, we carry one in the 5er to display and there is usually one in the front of the house, tho the wind a couple of days ago finished it off. It will be replaced today as will the decal on my truck.

As a note - many VFW posts will correctly destroy damaged US flags
