Veteran's Day and Remembrance Day

I am a baby boomer. I was born in peace time and enjoyed an uneventful childhood and adolescence. Then there was war. Most of the young men and many of the young women of my generation joined up with the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines ... most of them flew or sailed out of my life ... forever. Some returned, weary and battle scarred to a country that did not appreciate their sacrifice. Today, November 11, 2008, I remember them.



For all veterans of all conflicts, whether alive and well or lying in the Fields of Flanders, inscribed in the Wall in Washington, or buried in Section 60 at Arlington National Cemetery:

God Bless You. Thank You. We Will Remember ...

They are really god sons .B’coz they had a great chance to server to their motherland. We can pray for people who left this world for this country and who are living we should give respect to them.
