Parades are fine and talk is cheap, but lets start really honoring our Veterans with the Health Care they need and maybe even some job opportunities.
Support the Veterans with more than words. They earned it, each and every one of them.
God Bless America and all those who served and are currently serving with Respect, Dignity and Honor.

Its that time again when I annually submit one name for your consideration. In an era when the word HERO is far too easily used,
on a day set aside for Veterans, one man at 5 foot 7 inches tall stands above all others.
1ST LT Audie Leon Murphy.
He won every decoration for bravery our Country offers and some of them twice. He lived the remainder of his life devastated by PTSD when it didnt even have a
name and he should never be forgotten. He died in a plane crash in 1971 and is buried at Arlington. Medal of Honor recipients headstones include a gold trim. Audie Murphy's does not. That was done at his request.

There are currently 80 living Medal of Honor recipients in the USA.

Hope you all can get out today and participate or just enjoy some sort of veterans day event.
Wave your flag.
A tradition of some sort.
I was told that during the WWII when the Americans came into Italy the women brought out a flat bread( MUFFULETTA BREAD) to show their gratitude to our troops.
The grocery store in Pittston has them for sale every Veterans day for the past many years.
Not sure if it is the same as what originally was given out but it is something of a different tasting bread.
If you ever get a chance stop in or call and get a round loaf or two. Around Vets day.
Cut it length ways, spread ricotta cheese on it put i in the oven for a while bring it out hot and pour honey over it. What a treat.
Enjoy your day my fellow comrades

I have the honor to know a MOH winner from the Vietnam War. I can only say, they "earn" that medal by their actions!

They are not winners! They are recipients. Its not something you
win. Just ask your friend and he will enlighten you. Its not nitpicking, its an important distinction.

A happy and thoughtful Remembrance Day to everyone. To all who served, you are thanked and never forgotten.
