Veterans Day Links
On the way to the parade we listened to President Bush deliver a powerful Veterans Day speech. Here's the transcript.
Took the kiddies to an awesome parade this georgeous afternoon.
I love the military culture and pride Las Vegas takes in recognizing those who have preserved freedom for our society. These are our True Heros.

So remember, even though you may has slept late, as I did, hang your flag, as I did. Hold a moment in your hearts to remember our Veterans, as I did. Remember most of all, the sacrifices our fighting men and women have endured to make our world safe.
Wow, what a day. Well, that pretty much takes care of almost my whole blog-roll. Please leave a comment with a link to your Veteran's Day Tribute and I'll include it above. Open trackbacks with out the trackback feature... I'm cool like that I guess.
Be sure to thank a Veteran not only today, but whenever you happen to meet one. Life as we know it would not be possible without the collection of all their individual sacrifices for the betterment of our country.
God Bless America.
