I did a post on the 100 year anniversary of the ending of WW I back in 2018. I did a post on my Vietnam Veteran in 2019. This year, I’m staying simple. ~Vic

Simple can be good. Nice flowers.
The Masons plant poppies every year.

I thought they might be poppies. I guess that’s the definitive flower for commemorating Veteran’s Day.
It certainly seems that way. Flanders Fields…
Simple is beautiful. Thank your Vet for me for his service, please. My son fought in the Saudi War. Freedom is a mighty thing.
Message delivered. Send my thanks to your son. What branch?
Marine? OORAH. LOL!
OH Shish I don’t know my sounds with the military. Evan Army, my Dad Navy, my grandfathers Army.
Each branch has their own “bark”, as it were. Marines and Navy SEALs all sound the same. I’m not sure where the Army got “Hooah” from. If the Air Force has a call, I’m not sure what it is. There’s a joke that goes something like this:
Army: Die for your brother soldier.
Marine/Navy: Die for your country.
Air Force: Die for air conditioning.
HAHA That made me laugh out loud!
It is pretty funny. I had a picture with a list of the sayings but, at the moment, I can’t find it.
Happy Veteran’s Day! I know someone who survived the war but I just got news that he woke up on his holiday sick. Rats!
We’re having a rainy one. We are catching the outer bands of Eta. At least it’s warm.
Pretty sure he’s been to Iraq. Not entirely sure.
Bless him. Which branch?
Marine Corps I believe. Spending time with him, and thankfully he’s feeling better.
OORAH! I was married to the Corps for 12 years.
Very pretty, Vic!
Thanks, Donna! The Masons plant poppies every year.
I love those flowers…and I don’t say that every day. Some of my uncles were in WW2…and I had a neighbor that was in the Special Ops…he was in Saddam’s house…he got a rug and a gun from his house. I didn’t ask how in the hell he got it over here.
Poppies are sweet things. Ever seen a lavender one?
He was Special Ops. They “connected.”
No I have not…
Yea he took me fishing at night and we would be doing 50 in his boat at 1am while he had his night vision goggles on…very cool but scary without them.
He sounds like a trip.
He makes guns and silencers…and now is retired and teaches at Fort Campbell. Really cool guy.
I like him already!
lol…his guns look really cool…no big features just smooth. He does is above board of course. He teaches soldiers how to shoot.
Nice! It takes some talent to craft guns. Gunsmithing is no easy task.
