11.12 - Veterans Day

Yesterday was actually Veterans Day, but it's celebrated today, too. Some people have the day off of work or school.

I've posted this photo before. It's a copy of my dads honorable discharge papers from the army in the mid 1940s. It was the middle of WWII when he enlisted. He was proud to be in this country so he became a citizen and was ready to serve. But after serving just a few months, he was honorably discharged because of his age.

I am thankful beyond words to all of our Veterans for selflessly serving our country, even if just for a few months or for an entire lifetime.
