This is probably off topic, but please forgive me.

While today may be the "observed" day, tomorrow is the 52nd anniversary of the day set aside to honor all U.S. veterans.

Starting as Armistice Day in 1919 to celebrate the end of World War I the year before, it was made a national holiday in 1938. After World War II and all the new veterans from it that had no connection to World War I, it was changed to Veteran's Day in 1954 to honor ALL veteran's, past, present and future.

So many of our ancestors, relatives, us and our children have voluntarily or not, briefly put aside their civilian lives and proudly worn the uniform of our armed forces to defend our country and our way of life from those who would destroy it. Even in "peace time" our armed services stand to protect us from invaders from both inside and outside of our borders. Many of those who have served gave the ultimate sacrifice, never making it home alive, others returned with a shattered body or mind.

Tomorrow, whether we ride our wings, have a BBQ or only leave the house to walk out to our mail boxes, I think we should all try to find the time to thank a veteran for their service to our country and we should all give a prayer to whatever supreme being you believe in as thanks for what we still have and for the well being of our veterans and the families of those who never made it home.

Vets... here's to you. :capwin:

Thanks Rick for the reminder and thoughts for our falling Vets, and for all those that served.

Don't hear from you much since the disarmament of the OTB.
Missed your humor, cycle experience, and reporting in on technical world.
Come back soon.
Cheers!

I'll be spending the day honoring a fallen soldier. Corporal Isaiah Calloway is being laid to rest tomorrow in Jacksonville, FL.

The Patriot Guard Riders as well as the Vietnam Veterans Motorcycle Club will be there. My Chapter of the Blue Knights will join them at the church and the escort to the cemetary.

Can't think of a better way to honor all veterans than to be there for this soldier and his family.

God Bless all our veterans, past and present.
