Why Celebrate Veterans Day?
Because "Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
If your're not willing to storm the beaches, be ready to support those who did it for you.

El Capitan, thank you for your service. I get chills whenever I see a photograph like that from an LCM...could have been my Dad in the wheelhouse.
Sarah from Trying to Grok has a quote on her blog that I try to live by everyday:
While our troops go out to defend our country,
it is incumbent upon us
to make the country worth defending.
God Bless those rough men.
