Veterans Day

8 posts in this topic

Remember our veterans this Veterans Day Saturday, Nov 11. There may be restaurants in your area offering a free meal for veterans. You can probably google your local restaurants and find out which ones do. Offer to take a veteran out to eat or even bring them a home cooked meal.

We do Remembrance Day in Canada. Our 12 yo ds is taking part in the local ceremony, so at least Wolf, Diva and Princess will be there as well, I suspect (Diva might be working, we'll see). I'll be home w/the youngest Minions, b/c I don't handle standing out in the cold well.

We always listen to 'A Pittance of Time' on youtube. It's a music video, and really amazing. I'd link it, but I'm not sure it's ok for the forum (I don't remember if there's ads w/the video or not, there's absolutely nothing in the video or lyrics that isn't G rated.)

We also have to remember the Marine Corp 242nd  Birthday in our House Nov. 10th. 

Lots to remember and be thankful for.

Hope everyone has a lovely Veterans' Day - or for our Canadian members, Remembrance Day - and a delightful weekend overall!

@ImpishMom - Hope your 12 enjoys being in the ceremony and does his part well!

@godsgifts - Hope the Marine Corp birthday was enjoyable, too!

Wolf and the girls went with him, and the youngest 2 and I stayed home. Diva had been in Cadets herself, and had marched in other ceremonies. Remembrance Day is something we've always taken seriously in our family, long before kids were really old enough to understand what it was about.

It was great our Grand Daughter bought my husband a cake with Happy Birthday 242nd USMC in Marine colors.
