Veteran's Day and Remembrance Day

I am a baby boomer. I was born in peace time and enjoyed an uneventful childhood and adolescence. Then there was war. Most of the young men and many of the young women of my generation joined up with the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines ... most of them flew or sailed out of my life ... forever. Some returned, weary and battle scarred to a country that did not appreciate their sacrifice. Today, November 11, 2005, I remember them.

For all veterans of all conflicts, whether lying in the Fields of Flanders or inscribed in the Wall in Washington : God Bless You. Thank You. We Will Remember ...
