Raise Our Flag With Special Reverence Today

World War I ended officially on June 28, 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.   The real fighting, however, stopped several months earlier on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.  November 11th was first celebrated as Armistice Day and is now called Veterans Day.

There are few WWII veterans living. No WW I veterans are living.  There are Veterans of Vietnam , Korea, the Gulf, Iraq, and Afghanistan around us.

If you see a Veteran thank him or her personally. Go up and say thanks for your service. Thanks for giving us your all and everything.  I appreciate what you have done and what you are doing.

Take a private moment and send your thanks to the heavens for all those Veterans who died.  Thank and bless their surviving loved ones — their children– their wives or husbands- -their brothers and sisters- -and thank their fathers and mothers who lost a child to battle.   Thank them everyday and thank them always.

Raise our flag with special reverence for all Veterans living, serving, and for those Veterans who lay buried on foreign shores and here at home.

“But the freedom they fought for, and the Country grand they wrought for, is their monument today and forever.”  Thomas Dunn English
