To American Veterans…
You Honor Us and Our Country
Today we Commemorate
Our Honor of You, Our Heros
Thank You God,
For these Brave Men and Women
In remembrance… I shed tears of love and devotion to them all including the slain warriors gunned down by the enemy at Fort Hood, Texas.
And… to my Dad, a veteran of three foreign wars, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, I Salute and Miss you Dad… may you rest in peace as the American Hero that you are.

I am honored that you share your presence with us here. You will find WarrantOneGirl’s blog here: http://warrantonegirl.wordpress.com/
EDIT: LisainTx, a member of the blog, is the daughter of a WWII Veteran, married to a Veteran, and is the Mother of an active duty warrior presently serving in Iraq, all of who’s service to our beloved country is honored and for which I and millions of others are grateful. Thank You, Sirs, for your service to our country.

EDIT: Another of the members here, Tellitlikeitis, has a World War II veteran relative, his father. Tellitlikeit is an honored member here and continues to work tirelessly to preserve and protect our beloved country. Thank you to your Father for his service to our country and for your continuing patriotic service here, Tellitlikeitis.
EDIT: There is likely other members here who are also Veterans or Spouses of Veterans or have family members who are veterans. I have been adding mention of each member veteran as their status comes to light and will continue to add member names as they surface.
There are other members here, though to the best of my knowledge are not veterans, are by their word and deed veterans at heart. Each member here is treasured and honored Patriots doing, within their power, everything they can to protect and preserve our beloved country. Thank each and every one of you, sirs and ma’ams, for your dedication and love of our country. I am honored by your presence and service.
EDIT: I have added the following in recognition of a Marine Veteran visitor to this blogpost Veterans Day Remembrance who served at Dong Ha, 1968.
for you dong_ha68:
EDIT: A Picture of one of the B-17s, Ole Blood n Guts, in which my Father flew in World War Two. Sadly, this proud B-17 Stratofortress did not survive the war and being severely battle damaged, crash landed on Dec 24, 1944, never to fly again. Though not confirmed, My Dad is believed to be in the back row, on the viewer’s right:
EDIT: An Addition requested by one of our beloved Veterans who is a member of this Blog… Samiam! Thank you for your service, Sir! I Salute and Honor You.
