Remembrance/Veterans Day

No matter what you call it, this is a little reminder that today is Remembrance/Veterans Day.  Take two minutes at 11:00 AM to stand quietly and remember, respect and honor those in the Armed Services, past and present, who have given so much, so that we can have peace and security.

Take some time today – Hell, take all day if you want, and take a bit of time any other day, whenever it’s possible – to shake the hand of a veteran, or current Serviceman, elbow-bump, or otherwise COVID-acknowledge them.  Smile behind your mask, and say, “Thanks!”

      Salute!!
      I owe my very existence to my Dad being a WWII veteran. I don’t know if he requested it, of if he somehow got assigned, but he was in the Merchant Marine.

      He got to sea, but he never got overseas. Between cold, damp, sea air, and fumes from gunnery practice, he developed compromised lungs and chronic bronchitis. He often coughed himself purple all his life.

      He got Medicalled-out in mid-’43, and returned home, to meet my divorced Mother’s younger brother, boozing in his home town. An introduction led to a marriage, and the marriage led to me being born 09/21/1944. 😀
