It’s an honor and a privilege to live in the greatest country on Earth, made so by all those who have and are serving. Thank you so much for your commitment to freedom and all that is good!
Here are some links about today:
Veterans’ Day celebrates, remembers all generations who have defended our nation
Dogs of War Get Heroes’ Salute at New York Veterans’ Day Parade
In the beginning of the movie “Born on the Fourth of July”, there’s a scene of an America where faith & family counted, where people lived behind unlocked doors, watching a patriotic parade. Most memorable was when the injured soldiers walked by. I remember being a kid at one of those hometown parades & it was touching to see the soldiers. We can’t ever thank them enough for standing in harm’s way for us.
Thank you, Veterans, human and canine. Thank you for our freedom, our prosperity, our security, our opportunity, our right to dissent. Without you, the American Dream would be nothing more than a dream. May God Bless America, especially our Veterans.
Thank you to all former and current military, especially to those who are currently deployed. We are thinking of you. If there are any military TAMs or readers deployed or deploying soon, I hope you will use the blog, twitter, and facebook to check in and let us know how you are doing. I think I can safely say that we would love to hear from you.
Tammy, Thank you tremendously!
The graphic of the flag standing strong for this post is also very beautiful. Tammy is our veteran in the political war we wage too:)
Thanks Veterans! Every Day.
M.Steyn column on Remembrance Day references Laura Rosen Cohen writing that Toronto Jewish school children did not participate in outdoor Remembrance Day ceremony because of unstated security concerns for their safety. And muslim students would be exempted from participating upon their request. Finally, The British Empire lost 888,246 servicemen during WWI. http://www.steynonline.com/6657/lame-ducks-and-lamer-ducking
Absolutely astonishing statistic on the casualties Alain41. The perspective you bring is greatly appreciated. Go TAMS! We’re the best group of friends (great fellowship)
