Veterans' Day


Photos by Alida Thorpe
Veterans' Day, November 11th.
On the 11th day, of the 11th month at the 11th hour, the treaty to end the fighting was signed to end the first World War.
Armistice Day was renamed Veterans' Day in 1954 to honor all veterans of all wars.
The photo above is the memorial at Bald Hill...to remember our Viet Nam veterans.

It is not possible to thank our veterans adequately. Their service, sacrifice, heroism, and humanity is above any expression or acknowledgment. Yet, we must try. Specifically but not exclusively, we must try with respect to our Brothers and Sisters who served in Vietnam because they, unlike other generations, were neglected (or worse) upon their return home.

Please check out the AoG (http://www.bix.com/person/AoG) and the Voices of Veterans. Please post a story or a photo if you can. And please pass along to your Brothers, Sisters, friends and family.
