Veterans Day

Veterans Day

What does Veterans Day mean to you?  To me...

I am thankful for all Veterans that are or have served to keep me and my family safe.  My Great Grandfather, father, uncle and daughter and son in law, have served in the Military.  Some more than others, some faced several wars, others were lucky to not have had to be in war.  Living in Colorado Springs we have Forts and Based all around.  I am so thankful to the entire family of our soldiers.  What the families at home have to live with, mom or dad not being home all the time.  Months of being separated. THANK YOU.  One of my favorites as my Dad recited from memory whenever the moment call for it.

In Flanders Fields

BY Col.JOHN MCCRAE

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

    That mark our place; and in the sky

    The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,

        In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

    The torch; be yours to hold it high.

    If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

        In Flanders fields.
