Veteran's Day

This November 11th, is a special day for all Americans.

We give many thanks to those that have or presently are in the military, serving our country, for the benefit of everyone.

A visit to the Arizona Memorial, in Hawaii, still brings tears to most visitors eye's, even today.

The remaining oil, on board the sunken hull, is still coming to the surface, faster and larger than it every has, sometimes enough to be able to smell it.

The Arizona parkland has been sinking, therefore there is construction underway, for a completely new parkland and visitors site.

The nice part of that, is that all the money needed for the construction, is already in hand. No borrowing is needed.

That money came from people from all walks of life, to keep the Arizona Memorial going, as a reminder to all of us, Lest we forget.

The battleship Missouri, is now in dry dock, for some needed hull repairs and is expected to be once again docked next to the Arizona Memorial, by the end of January 2010.

Let's please remember our vets and our Memorials always, but especially this Veteran's Day, November 11th.

Andy and Staff

Attending the National Veterans Day Ceremony A patriotic ceremony honoring America’s military members and Veterans is scheduled for Wednesday, November 11, 2009, at 11:00 a.m. in Arlington National Cemetery. A wreath-laying ceremony will take place at the Tomb of the Unknowns, followed by a ceremony in the Memorial Amphitheater, adjacent to the Tomb. The event will commence with a prelude concert by the United States Air Force Concert Band & Singing Sergeants at 10:30 a.m., inside the amphitheater.
Attendees are strongly encouraged to arrive early. Every effort is made to perform security screenings quickly and efficiently, but the lines to pass through the screening stations often become quite lengthy. Once capacity has been reached - which often happens by 10:30 or earlier - entrance to the Tomb and amphitheater area of the cemetery will be closed.
This year’s event will be hosted by Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki; National President of the Paralyzed Veterans of America Gene A. Crayton, and Brig. Gen. Karl R. Horst, Commander of the U.S. Army Military District of Washington and the Joint Force Headquarters–National Capital Region.
Both ceremonies are free and open to the public. For those interested in observing the wreath ceremony, space is limited to standing room only. Inside the amphitheater, seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. No tickets are needed to attend these events. The events conclude at noon.
At 8:00 a.m., the cemetery gates open and a free shuttle service will begin transporting guests from the Arlington National Cemetery visitor center to the Tomb/amphitheater. Parking in the cemetery’s visitor parking lot will be free until 1:00 p.m. The visitor center is approximately one-quarter mile from the Arlington National Cemetery Metro station on the Blue Line (between the Pentagon and Rosslyn stations).
Fort Myer will also operate a free shuttle for DoD Identification card holders from the Fort Myer Memorial Chapel parking lot. Walking into the cemetery is prohibited from Fort Myer.

Visited Arlington last Friday. It is worth the time to read many of the headstones.

One of the vet topics that always interests me are the lists of movie stars who served and those who didn't...perhaps a periodic review of our national-level politicians who served and didn't would be worthwhile--it's easy to be a hawk when you don't know crap, excuse me, don't have personal experience. I am in favor of a draft to ensure that a cross section of Americans face the consequences of our foreign policy decisions.

I have to hand it to today's servicemen and women. It is a life of continuous deployments, which is a grinding hardship.

Looks like you have a couple of hours or so, as a pilot.

But how did a Prevost get in there?

I'm here-lucky to be alive a number of times.
Last week a soldier returned home in a casket.
The service was in Lodi and the procession went thru his home town of Lockeford.The streets were filled with folks paying their respect for this young man. As he passed I saluted with tears in my eyes.

Today being Veterans Day, I called my dad to thank him for his 33yrs. of service, I did get choked up.
He was a Naval Aviator for many years, putting his live on the line for this country, just as thousands of breave men and women have done.

From the bottom of my heart, I say Thank You!!. Thank you seems so small for something so important and so large.

I will continue to pray and support all branches of the
Military of the United States of America

THANK YOU!!
