Veterans Day

In honor of Veterans Day, I would like to take this time to say to our veterans: Thank You.

Thank you for the sacrifices you made; on the bloody battlefields, the burning decks of ships, and in the smoke filled skies.
Thank you for giving everything you had; your life, your health, and your innocence, in order that others would not have to give theirs.
Thank you for helping to preserve everything that is important in our country; life, liberty, and the ability to choose what we do in life.
For all those that died before their time, in order that we at home would not, thank you. We owe a debt that can never be fully paid.

"Militum semper memento"
(Always remember the soldiers.)

I would like to say thank you to all troops of all the Allies - not just the American.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Apparently there is one living veteran of the American Expeditionary Force, Mr. Fred Buckles, of Charles Town, WV.

I think he ought to receive a full state funeral when he dies, as the representative of the two million Americans who were part of the AEF and as a final thank-you to those men.

If you agree, then I ask that you blog about the idea and also contact your congresscritters.
