Veterans Day 2011

November 11th, 2011

No, Joe didn’t forget to post his annual Veterans Day words to honor the great men and women who have served this country. Thanks to them we get to enjoy football this weekend.

Joe was actually busy honoring veterans this morning and enjoying an extra special Veterans Day. Just days ago, Joe’s mom shipped him a bunch of old stuff from her Hurricane Irene damaged basement, and in the box was Joe’s late dad’s Army discharge papers and other military paperwork and letters.

What a cool bunch of stuff. Who knew the old man had all kinds of sharpshooter commendations. No wonder young Joe spent all that time at the firing range freezing at the local Turkey Shoot contest. And what a great look at how Joe’s dad was one the legions of heroes that laid it all on the line in Hawaii for the United States.

A gigantic Thank You is in order to all the vets that can read this post.

    A veteran – whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve – is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to “‘The United States of America”, for an amount “up to, and including my life”. That is honor, and there are way to many people in this country who no longer understand it. Author unknown
