my thoughts on whatever I may be thinking about and choosing to share
Published on November 10, 2007 By warreni In Websites
Tomorrow is Veterans' Day in the United States. Without getting into political discussions regarding America's current or historical military engagements, it's safe to say that all of us wish for our soldiers to come home safe and sound and able to lead productive lives in peacetime. Sadly, many do not. In addition to a day of remembrance for those whose lives were lost, I encourage visitors tomorrow to follow these links:

Thank You Veterans - a site created by the Paralyzed Veterans of America, an advocacy group for veterans' rights, so that ordinary Americans can send a e-card note of thanks to a veteran or active service member

The Wounded Warrior Project - the homepage for a nonpartisan organization that advocates in Washington for veterans' rights and aids the families of veterans who come home from war zones with disabilities

Take a few moments to donate to one of these groups if you can afford it, or, if not, simply send a note of thanks. Irrespective of how I feel about America's current engagements, I am grateful for the service of our soldiers past and present.

In the UK, 11/11 is a special day, armistice day. At 11:00 we have two minutes silence to remember all those who sacrificed their lives so we may enjoy freedom.

Never forget.

Having served in the service of my country for 30yrs, I thank you for remembering.   

A simple little gesture that cememts feelings across time and distance is when people at home proudly display the flag. It makes no difference where we live or the origin of the flag, at one time where were all brothers and sisters.

The best we can hope for is that no one ever forgets. As one late 60's song said "Teach your children well."

Thank you posting this.

One of the things we do is fly the flag. The other thing we do is call the vetrens we know (especially my father and my wife's ex-father-in-law) and thank them. It's the least we can do.
