Veterans Day 2015

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

This is a repost from last year. I still like it. Plus I added a PS, so that makes it legit for NaBloPoMo.

My dad served in Vietnam when he was fresh out of ROTC. He came home, back to his wife, started a family and lived a healthy, productive life until his death at the age of 60. Not all veterans are so lucky.

Today is Veterans Day and there are lots of men and women in this country who served this country and could now use your help. If you plan to donate this Veterans Day, please consider the Wounded Warrior Project. Additionally, my friend Suzanne wrote a lovely post a few years ago about How to Celebrate Veterans Day that still rings true.

PS and also, just because this drives me insane every single year – please note: it is not Veteran’s Day, no apostrophe.

11:11 11/11/11

Friday, November 11th, 2011

I had major plans for the wish I was going to make today. I’ve always been an 11:11 wisher, not a bandwagon jumper in this case. And then I got distracted and missed it. The only thing that made up for it was seeing all of the 11:12 timestamps on the 11:11 tweets and facebook updates. Really, people? That’s a kind of important one to time correctly.

It’s also Veterans Day. Suzanne wrote a great post about How to Celebrate Veterans Day. Go read it. It’s great! I’ll wait. See? Excellent.

One of the most important points is respecting and celebrating veterans every.single.day.

Every day. Not just one or two days a year, when society tells us too. Those are just that days that are extra special.

My dad served in Vietnam.
