Ours is out and I wanted to take this opportunity to say a humble thank you to all our veterans. You have blessed us with your service, and I will do my best to honor that with not taking my freedoms for granted.

[/Happy Veteran's Day! :applause: :applause: :applause::iwo:

    I've not served, but I am grateful to everyone here that has. My son and I thankyou.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    I woke up early so that it was up @ sunrise. Wish I had a bugler to play reveille

    Was at a National Veterans cemetery last weekend where Mrs Chief is buried. They had already started putting all the flags out and I'll make another visit tomorrow as I usually go out weekly and put out flowers for her. My late FIL is also interned there, a 30 year Navy man. It is quite the sight as you drive in and past all the markers and see all the flags flying in honor of their service and sacrifices to our great nation. Very solemn experience every time I go.

    I do that, too. Facing the front of the house, the flag is on the left side of the door and the light is on the right side.
