Happy Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day, also known as Armistice Day and Rememberance Day. Today we honor all those brave men and women who have served in our military. We extend our gratitude to everyone who has put their lives on the line to secure our freedom these 230 years.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has lots of great info including the official Veterans Day poster, a history of Veterans Day, and statements from President Bush, Secretary of Veterans Affairs R. James Nicholson, and Veterans Day Spokesperson Jennifer Love Hewitt (but sadly no pictures).

I'd like to personally thank my father, a Vietnam Veteran, for his service. I hope everyone who reads this will also take the time to say "Thank You" to a veteran today.
