Day 220: Veteran’s Day

Veteran’s Day – November 11, 2011

This of course is a very important day around General Sarge HQ. A day to remember our brave men and women who have fought – and died – during wartime.  As we remember the 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month, we’re also reminded that today’s date is full of 11’s as it’s 11-11-11.

It seemed very fitting that I pose for a picture with an Army tank for this day. The plaque in front of this tank at the Palmyra, New York VFW Post 9778 reads…

“This tank is a memorial to the men and women of the Palmyra area who answered their country’s call.

“Dedicated in memory of those who made the supreme sacrifice. Because of them our lives are free. Because of them our nation lives!” Dedicated May 15, 1999.

Remembering Those Who Have Served And Are Serving

Veteran’s Day has always been a special one for PV2 Ben’s parents. But this Veteran’s Day it’s a little more special and a lot closer to home as our thoughts and prayers are not only with those who have served before, but also with my human-owner PV2 Ben is serving now.

Lord keep him safe,
General Sarge
