Happy Veterans Day 2015

Daisy took this photo of me while we waited for the Veterans Day Parade to start. I'd like to thank all veterans who served their country honorably. Not just in the United States but to our friends across the world. As a lot of other countries celebrate Remembrance Day today which honors their own heroes.
We certainly need to thank those who earned the Purple Heart award. Especially our fallen heroes who never got to return home.

Remembrance Day here in Australia it is called.
To remember when the "guns fell silent" on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th Month at the end of WW1.
The major "celebration" is held at the Canberra War memorial where the whole diplomatic corp is represented plus our Prime Minister,the leader of the Opposition and the Governor-General.
I attended the wreath laying at the Brisbane Cenotaph - unfortunately many of the younger generation couldn't give a damn. Too busy with their mobile (cell) phones probably checking bloody facebook! Makes my blood boil.
It is pleasing to see that you and your wife attended your Veterans Day.
I believe all other countries involved in WW1 call this day - Remembrance Day.
It is a SOLEMN day to remember those who fell in that horrible conflict which really
should never have happened in the first place. All over colonial empire building.

My hubby never fails to THANK the veteran when he saw one on the street.

We try our best to say THANK YOU every time we see a veteran.
My dad was a veteran from WW2 and came home with only 1 lung...the VA took very good care of him for the rest of his life.
