Happy Veterans Day

Two of these handsome Marines (the ones on either end) are from Adams Basin and I've known both of them since they were literally born.  Thankfully they are all home this year safe and sound having served in Afghanistan all last year.

Happy Veterans Day to all of you who have served our country and our gratitude to the families who stayed behind and worried and loved you.  All of you deserve this day of thanks and I sincerely hope you feel the love of those of us who you so bravely protected.

It's 'Remembrance' Day here in the UK,where we use the symbol of the Flanders Poppy to pay tribute to the soldiers who died to keep our freedom.
Sending thanks to all the soldiers of the 'free world'. May the time soon come when you are able to return safely once more to your families and those who love you

Since at least one of them is your kid, I'll try not to drool too much. I'm old enough to be their mom too. Thank you, boys! Thank the girls, too, who serve this country-the greatest nation in the world! And thanks to all you moms, wives, husbands, dads, kids, who give up your soldiers so they can go to far away places to serve. Hugs to all!!
