Veteran’s Day

In the United States, we set aside a day in November to honor our miltary Veterans.  Those who saw active combat and those who supported them.  My personal list is:
 
My dad:  Korean War wounded, Army
 
Himself:  Viet Nam war – two tours, Navy
 
My brothers-in-law – Served during Viet Nam war, Navy
 
Our dear friend, R – WWII Navy, Pacific theater
 
So many more.  Bless you and thank you.  It is because of people like you that I can walk safely in the streets, speak my mind, write a blog and vote in elections.
 
Working on a blog for Isabella’s first bd, November 14th.
 
Have a blessed weekend, everyone, and thank you for faithfully visiting.  gail

  1. Hello Gail,
     
    Thank for stopping by. I have added your list to mine, if that is all right. Of course with those who have served, the dependents deserve recognition too. They pay a high price – I have seen it and experienced it.
     
    You are welcome. Thanks to all of yours who have served, too. As SSgt Hooper said, "We are all family in arms." He is the recruiter who taped his business card to candy at Halloween. I talked with him and he is a cool guy. Just proud of his job and doing his best.
     
    Peace & Blessings.

  2. Ciao G.
    Thanks for your comments.
    Tomorrow in Canada, it will be Remberance Day, same as your Veterans Day…Hope that you have a great day.
    Wishing you a wonderful evening G.
    May God Bless You
    Hugs & Kisses
    Love

  3. Hello Gail,
     
    My daughter says, "You are welcome." She is able to go places I have not yet been able to delve into. I hope it helped you understand where I was going with my previous post.
     
    Peace & Blessings.

  4. Granddaddy: Army WWII
    Dad, both Uncles: Army Vietnam
    Father-in Law, Brother-in-Law: Navy Peacetime
    Step-Dad: Air Force Peacetime
    Brother-in-Law: Army Reserves Desert Storm
    Thanks to one & all
     
    I can hardly believe how much Bells has changed! Happy 1st b-day kisses from California 😡

  5. Hello Gail,
     
    It is I who am honored that I influenced you to do the same. You cannot steal that which is freely and willingly given. Anything for our Veterans and to spread the word & honor they deserve.
     
    Peace & Blessings.

  6. Hey G, we don’t have veterans day here. But looking at some blogs, I notice that most family members of Americans have been through war. As for us, we are a very small country, and not many have been soldiers, although many have suffered through war times. My parents and grandparents have all been through war, and the worst was the atrocities done by the Japanese. Pls. don’t mention this on my page though, as I would not like to offend Michiko, who is Jap.
    Anyways, yes, so I am grateful for those who have fought on our behalf to help us gain that independence.
    hope the weekend is beautiful. i enjoyed the photos of Bells!! 🙂
    hugs to all!!God bless!

  7. I know, I have my blog title all picked out already….lol.  I’ve had it for DAYS. 
     
    I am so crabby.  I hate it when Allen is gone.  Not that when he is here much he is HERE, it’s just that he is HERE.  Do you get my drift?  I think it is all the weather and the wedding and all the STUFF.  It is getting to me.  I am not ready to lose my baby just yet. 
     
    Sadness.

  8. Hi Mom,
     
    I am doing great and in usual jam packed work shedules. I’ve found an accomodation and I will be getting internet in next 4 days as the building owner promised coz they don’t give me internet connection coz I am not having a local visa.
     
    Huh… I think almost your whole family in involved in Army.
     
    Isabella is so cute (think she’s my neice… isn’t she?)… give a hug for her from me.
     
    I know, I haven’t mailed you for long time and blogging very slow. It’s just a transition period where you hate internet for a while and then back to it. So it’s just a transition period for me. I’ll be back with a bang… don’t worry mama..
     
    Take care. Well, we love… at least I love visiting your blogs… that’s the only place where I get to know about my mom….
     
     
    God bless you.
    Love, Son.

  9. Lol, Gail!  No, I don’t keep copies of my messenger conversations!  While the serf and I were having that discussion, I was thinking that maybe it would help highlight and clarify some things, and so I asked him right then if he minded if I posted it.  I would not have done so had he been hesitant, but he wasn’t in the least little bit.
     
    And I wouldn’t even save a copy of any of our communications without asking you, either.  Feel better? 
     
    My dad: served in WWII and Korea.  One friend – ??? tours in Iraq (he was in the top secret part of the Navy where no one was allowed to know where he was when he went out – not even his wife!).  Another friend, Navy, the first ship there in Iraq when it all began.  Back 1 or 2 more times after that.
     
    All my uncles served in WWII.  My dad had 2 brothers.  I found a note in my grandmother’s Bible.  It was a list of all the things she was thankful for – if I remember correctly, the first thing on the list was all her sons coming back alive from the war.

  10. Hi there, Sorry I"ve been a stranger but as you can see by my blog, I"ve been busy.  I did take the time out and post a tribute for Veterans Day on my blog.  However I also honored the women who stand beside these men who are so often forgotten.  When you get a chance, take a peek.  Hope you are having a great weekend!

  11. lovely new album …so Isabella is nearly one year old …early hugs and kisses for her from me and from Fergus too 🙂

  13. Here here!  Even though I can’t stand our government (whether democrat or GOP) I have always backed the men and women who fight so that we may have a life free of the chaos that consumes third world countries.  I think we all have people that are and have always been in the military.
     
    My personal opinion is that if you want to start a war I want to see the rich kids and the political kids in it too ~smiles~.  Then perhaps I would have 1/10th the respect for my government as I do the grunts who fight for my freedom from chaos!
     
    I have several friends in Iraq now, most of them are in Bagdhad in the "hot zone" right now.  A very close friend that I have grown up with and worked with hasn’t chimed in for a while ~sighs~.  I pray he is ok.
     
    My dad fought with the 116th River Boat Squad.  He worked on mine sweepers and swift boats.  He was in the Navy too.  My grandfather and Uncle James both fought in WWII.
     
    I hope you and all those you love are safe ~smiles~
     
    Love,
    Adam
     
    I saw a movie today called "Why We Fight" it was very well put together I thought.
