11/11/08- Veteran's Day

In honor of our veterans-

"You gave for peace with courage
That families may be free
So children could grow strong
And safe they'd ever be.
In giving for the sake of peace
You may have suffered loss
Your body may still show its wounds
From taking up the cause.
May remembrance of your time away
Your sacrifice for peace
Spur us on to strive more strongly
For freedom, that there'll be release.
From causes that sent some away
To fight that we may freely live
With gratefulness we thank you, veterans
For all you gave and give!"

And for those who want to help.

Great idea to put on the places we can help. This afternoon, I put on Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund..also good. Doesn't that photo break your heart?

Nice job, Incog.

Photo and poem say it all-- I am left with nothing to add except, thanks for this handy listing of links for supporting and showing appreciation to our finest citizens-- the troops.
