its their day, links


today is veterans day
to honor those who have fought in wars for our country
and have served in the military
my view is whether you agree with a particular war doesnt
when it comes to supporting the veterans who fought those wars

they signed up to protect us and some make the ultimate
they die

i always thought that veterans day should be a national holiday
lets get rid of say columbus day
make it a true holiday where all things are closed
a true memorial day
i think during election years that elections should be on
veterans day
maybe we could get more folks out to vote
the more folks who vote the better our democracy is
maybe we wont fight so many wars
maybe we can support our veterans better after they
come home
thats when they really need our support
it lasts their lifetime
those effects of fighting in wars

we havent always done a good job of that

so today im thinking of
ancestors in the past who fought in the war of 1812
the civil war on both sides
spanish war
ww1 the war to end all wars but it didnt
middle east wars dont think we will ever get out of there

most recent times
my three brothers
my oldest in the army
my historian brother in the air force
my rainwater brother in the air force
my judge brotherinlaw in the air force
my nephew in the marines and my nephew in the navy
my uncle who was shot in the pacific in ww2
my wifes dad in the air force

thank all of you for your service
