The Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day...

On this Veterans Day I want to thank my father (Peleliu and Okinawa), brother (Beirut), uncles (Pacific naval battles; Philippines; North Africa), grandfather (Atlantic duty in WWI), other forebears (Andersonville; GAR duty) and veterans I knew or know (Battle of the Bulge; Normandy drop; Aleutian campaign; Normandy landings; Pacific Island campaigns; Korea; Vietnam; Cold War; 1st Gulf War; Iraq; Afghanistan) for their service and sacrifices on our behalf.  (Below is a Doughboy forever ascendant in Astoria, Oregon.)
