    Went out with the family on Friday; saw an older man wearing one of those "Veteran of XXXX" hats; Veteran of WW2, Korea, and Vietnam. He was a spry 92 years old, and got around quite well. As a military retiree myself, I don't USUALLY say ' Thanks for your service," but I was certainly felt obliged to say it to him...

    Flags are flying , as always both at home and the barn. As the saying goes, " If you can read this thank a teacher and since it is in English, thank a veteran. " To all who have served, past present and future, Much gratitude for your service and sacrifices. Regards, Upstaged in SW Michigan.

    Happy Veteran's Day. I saw an older gentlemen wearing his old military uniform today as his family was taking him out for lunch. I thanked him for serving as I walked past him. I have to admit, he looked good in his uniform and it made me wish that I was able to fit back into mine.

    The concert band of which my wife is a member had it's annual Veteran's Day concert yesterday. At the conclusion of the concert, Taps was played by a military veteran who is also a veteran member of the band. He is 92 years old and he nailed it. I work the information booth and noticed a man in a red shirt standing behind me. I turned to look and he was a man that I saw being pushed into the concert in a wheelchair. He had a First Marine Division WW 2 hat on.He was standing at attention. The greatest generation indeed.
