With us for Veteran's Day

Lorelei has tomorrow off in observance of Veteran's Day....she is here for the night and will spend tomorrow with us.
She said they had veterans visit their school today.  When I was a kid, I had no comprehension of what our veterans had done for us.  Not when I was her age.  Not until I was a lot older.  Anyway, she was not sure if there was a Marine there or not...that was the branch Roger was in.

I am so thankful for these brave men...and women.  Who knows where we would be if not for them?

Have fun with the little---but growing---cutie.
We must be thankful for our veterans for keeping us free. I don't think when I was Lorelei's age I knew much about what a veteran was.---

You're correct that most kids don't understand the significance...but perhaps visiting veterans do lay the groundwork for understanding later on.

It's all about planting those seeds for kids to reflect on as they grow older. Have a lovely day.....love those tennis shoes!

In remembering the sacrifice the brave men and women gave for their nation.

In Canada we call today Remembrance Day. We all wear poppies in honour. (The poppy idea came from the famous poem 'In Flanders Field') My grandfather served in the British Army during WW1 as an ambulance driver. When he lived with us when I was young, he told me many war stories of bravery and sacrifice during his time in France. My uncles told me about their equally gruesome experiences during WW!! when they were in the RCAF. Along with many neighbours, today we will go to the town Cenotaph at 11am and pay our respects to the fallen and serving.

Great photos of Lorelei and how wonderful that they had veterans visit her school. I agree with you Rose, where would we be without them?
