Veteran's Day

I changed my background for the month of November just to be a little "in your face" about the fact that it is Veteran's day on the 11th of this month.  No matter what your feelings about the current war, there are certain liberties we as American's absolutely enjoy because people volunteered to put their lives on the line when no other clear option was available.  On Nov. 11th thank a vet.

If you want to thank a vet and engage in some shopping, Overstock.com is partnering with what just may be my favorite charity, the Wounded Warrior Project.  What could be better?  Excellent deals, and an opportunity to support an organization that provides necessary services to the men and women who have been injured in combat.

And if you wanted an excuse to eat birthday cake this month, go ahead and make a cake for your favorite United States Marine as he celebrates his corp's 234th birthday on November 12th.

I have to admit, I don't think enough about the actual meaning of Veteran's Day, just that it's a day off. Thanks for the reminder.

I like your new background. And thanks for the reminder!

Mrs. Cavehair,

I love you madly and am VERY grateful for your support, however, I MUST correct your calender. It was Nov. 10, 1775 that OUR Corps came alive!

Semper Fi!

I was very pleased to find out that the elementary school we just moved the two youngest kids to has a Veteran's Day assembly every year and it is a very big deal at the school. They have local Veterans come speak to the kids and such. This made me very happy :-)
