Veteran's Day

Tuesday is Veteran's Day, so please don't forget our soldiers away from home as well as here.  Our men and women in the armed services overseas are lonely and homesick, so if you have someone fighting for us in another country be sure to write to them and send them packages from home.  As the holidays approach it will be even worse for these young people so please, please write weekly to your family members and others.

So many of our young soldiers suffer horrible injuries both mentally and physically, so be sure not to forget them when they come home.  If you can, donate to Wounded Warriors at

It's the Soldier, not the reporter Who has given us the freedom of the press.

It's the Soldier, not the poet, Who has given us the freedom of speech.

It's the Soldier, not the politicians that ensures Our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of

It's the Soldier who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag, And whose coffin is draped by the flag.

Thanks Sandy....and please remember that the Post Office will not accept mail or packages addressed to "any soldier" has to be to a specific name. Good post.

Thank you Sandy. My greatgrandfather served in WW1. My great uncles served in WW2. Another great uncle was in Vietnam. My dad was in the National Guard. My brother in law still serves but was also in Dessert Storm.

Patriotism runs deep in our family. In my family, my grandfather didn't go to WW2 because he lost two brothers before his draft date. My great uncle was never the same after Vietnam and eventually committed suicide.

I thank them each day for their sacrifices.

Thanks, Kari. Often the packages I sent ended up in the hands of other soldiers than the one I was sending it to.

It was the reason I wrote to so many soldiers.
