Thank you to those who have served or is currently serving in our military.  Veterans Day has been celebrated in the United States since 1954.  It originally was named Armistice Day (1919) to celebrate the end of "The Great War" or World War I.  Many courageous Americans have given their lives in order to preserve the freedoms that we often take for granted. Many of my family members have worn a U.S. uniform and Stacie and I are proud retirees.  No matter the political climate, no matter the ethnic background, no matter the economic stature, no matter the youth or elderly, we can all join hands to commemorate the selfless souls who have contributed so much to the preservation of our nation's foundations and ideals.  This flag is flown daily from sunrise to sunset at our former Marine neighbor's home.  Have you thanked a veteran lately?
