I went to the courthouse this morning thinking they might have something commemorating the veterans, but I think they had the parades, and parties on Saturday. I took a picture of the new wall honoring our fallen soldiers from various wars. This one was from the War on Terror. Chris Sanders is the 4th name down. He went to NMMI with my boys, his mother was Warren's nurse when he first went out on his own, and Chris was Warren's patient.

I found a blog this morning written from a wife whose husband is about to be deployed. It is so wonderful. This blog is a must read. Have your kleenix handy. Please stop by her blog on this Veteran's Day, and send her a word of encouragement. It is one way we can honor our veterans.
Thank a Veteran today. God Save America!
