11-11-11


Not only is it cool that the date is 
11-11-11....
but it is the day we honor all that
have served and those who continue to serve
our country to keep us safe and free.
It's called
Veteran's Day.

I read this at a funeral of a 
veteran not long ago and thought
how true it is....

A veteran is someone who,
at one point in his/her life, 
wrote a blank check made 
payable to:
The United States of America,
For the amount of,
"up to and including my life."

How true that is....

THANK YOU!

Hi, Remington! I saw you comment on AO4's page, and wanted to say "hello." You are a very large, and handsome fellow!

I love your post for all the veterans. Mommy has a brother and a nephew in the airforce, so we appreciate everyone who supports our troops.

Puppy Love,

hey Remington,

What a lovely tribute! We also salute and honor all the Veterans, both human and animal. I think the greatest honor to give them would be an end to all wars.

Peace.

Happy belated Vets day. My nephew is a vet and went to the Olive Garden and they gave him a free dinner and a $10 gift card, how nice was that?
