Veterans Day 2020

Posted on Updated on

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

        I thought they might be poppies. I guess that’s the definitive flower for commemorating Veteran’s Day.

    Simple is beautiful. Thank your Vet for me for his service, please. My son fought in the Saudi War. Freedom is a mighty thing.

                  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.

                      It is pretty funny. I had a picture with a list of the sayings but, at the moment, I can’t find it.

      We’re having a rainy one. We are catching the outer bands of Eta. At least it’s warm.

      Which war?

    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.

                  Nice! It takes some talent to craft guns. Gunsmithing is no easy task.
