Here is some information from the U.S. Census Bureau about our veterans. It’s a five-page PDF, so be patient and let it load.
Thank a Veteran today! You and I probably would not be doing the things we are doing this morning were it not for the sacrifices made by our veterans. And they’re still doing it.
Larry and I are attending Veterans Day ceremonies in Sattler, Texas this morning, at VFW Post #8573. They are holding a flag retirement ceremony at 11 A.M.
We hope to take some photographs, and and post them this afternoon or Monday.
Remember to fly Old Glory today, and give generously for a Buddy Poppy, too. All funds raised through the Buddy Poppy program are used to provide financial assistance for state and national veterans’ rehabilitation and service programs, and help support the VFW National Home for orphans and widows of our nation’s veterans.
