Veterans Day

Veterans Day-clicl to enlarge Veterans Day in USA is Remembrance Day in other countries;
a time to remember those service men who gave their lives for our freedom.
Veterans Day was established in 1919 following WWI when many
of our soldiers lost their lives in foreign lands fighting the "Great War".
The cemetery image is Flanders Field where 368 Americans were laid to rest.
The poem "In Flanders Field" was penned by Lt. Col. John McCrae in 1915.
Please take time this week to remember our fallen warriors from all conflicts
and reflect on the freedoms they have protected.
God Bless America!
