We decided we would give our vets a personal salute today but use photos instead of words. So we borrowed a few photos Jan took this morning at the local Veterans Day Ceremony at the courthouse square. There was a band and a large group of cadets in the street behind those in attendance, but, unfortunately, even though Jan was standing on a hill, the tops of their heads could barely be seen behind the crowd. (So we didn't include those photos.)
"Amazing Grace" played on the bagpipes.
The bugler plays "Taps."
The sign reads: For those who served. We honor our troops.
Happy Remembrance Day to all our friends in Canada, the UK and Australia!
A hearty thank you to all the veterans who now serve or have served their country, from JFF - Crystal, Cotton, Merci, Cyndi, Percy, Cameron, Buddy, Rusty & Sam -- and Jan!
And on a sad note, late last night we learned our favorite hamster GirlGirl has died. We will miss her.
