This November 11, 2014 Veterans Day
« on: November 11, 2014, 04:02:39 AM »
This November 11, 2014 Veterans Day sitting here thinking about all that served in times of conflict and yes even in times of peace.   Thank you!

Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

UK I did see that and was stunned.

Greatful to our veterans that have managed to keep us safe and free.  But did you ever reflect upon the thousands and thousands that are no longer here because they paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we could live as we are. Makes you feel sort of humble.

I play in a vintage style community band, and we played at a great Veteran's Day ceremony today. Truly heartfelt thanks to all of our veterans that have served so that we can all be free.
