    At the elementary school where I teach 3rd grade, we had a sensational, moving tribute that included all five grades of classrooms and about 15 area veterans on the stage. Several tears were shed at this remarkable event.
    This was designed totally by the first-year principal, who has Mexican roots and has seen the best and worst of both countries.
    She did an awesome job of including several people to point out the real meaning of Vets Day.
    My hat's always gonna be off to the men and women of our military. My biological father was a captain in the Navy and graduated William & Mary/Annapolis before serving out his distinguished career.
    Several others in my family are also military members including my one-year-older brother, who's now in Kuwait on a tour that takes him on weekly visits to the hot spots.
    Thanks to all who serve!

    Up here in Canada we call it Remembrance Day but it's still the same.

    I had three uncles who went to Europe in World War 2 and two came back.

    My uncle Ernie, my father's younger brother, is buried in Holland.

    RIP Uncle Ernie and thank you.

    Although Canadians remember both World Wars, Korea, and now our presence in Iraq & Afghanistan, WW1 is the singular most important in our nation's history.

    There were 67,000 killed and 173,000 wounded out of a force of 620,00

    I have a friend whose dad is 95 and served in WW2. Danny comes to the Goose regularly and gets a standing ovation every times he does karaoke. Seriously.
