A Salute to Our Vets

Here was last year's Veteran's Day Post with parade pictures...

I was unable to attend this years Veteran's Day parade that marches down the north end of the Vegas Strip, my children however did not. They were able to attend with their Vietnam Veteran grandfather who received handshakes and salutes from strangers all day long while he donned his Vietnam Veteran's hat.

At one point my son Tyler looked up at Grandpa as the wounded vets paraded along in their wheelchairs and asked, "Grandpa, wasn't it hard for them to fight in a war in their wheelchairs?"

I know this post is too late but better late than never...

God Bless America's Vets!


Handshakes and salutes that were long overdue!

That sincerely brought a tear to my eye. Especially the thought of what those handshakes and thanks must have meant, and because of what your son said.

Thanks lilfeathers

linda: isn't that the truth... he's just now begun putting some of his stories into writing and WOW... he is my hero.

RT: He's so humble, even though I wasn't there, I'm sure he blushed dropped his head in an 'aw shucks it was nothing' sort of way and tried to dismiss it- while respectfully grasping the thanking hand.

Tyler's comment was so cute and innocent that it brought a smile to grandpas face.

This is one of my favorite Veterans Day and/or Memorial Day shots. The problem is how sadly it makes our country look.
