Veterans Day Participation
(October 13, 2009)

With Veterans Day coming soon on November 11th, I cannot help but think of my father-in-law who passed away last year on November 5th . . . just a few days from this special day where he could again proudly celebrate being a veteran of three wars.

And while my family is blessed that my father, a World War II veteran, is still with us . . . sadly, there are not too many more Veteran Days for him and the rest of our greatest generation.

Also, being a father of a Marine veteran, who served in Iraq during 2003 . . . this day has become even more important to me . . . Like other parents, the 24 x 7 media coverage of his time in harm's way remains vivid to this day.

Veterans Day - November 11, 2009 Moreover, these thoughts resulted in the writing of my new poem, Bravely Served, which joins several of my other poems that honor the veterans. 

So, please take the time to see if your church and/or another organization that you are associated with is planning to recognize / honor the veterans and troops on Veterans Day or the Sunday before.  (You can attend your community's Veterans Day salute, as well.)

In fact, there is no excuse for any adult American and most children of reasoning age to at least say a prayer of thanks for the veterans and the soon to be ones, our troops, on Veterans Day!  Isn't it worth a few  minutes of one's time to express heartfelt gratitude and praise for those who proudly served our great nation including those wounded for life and all the fallen?
