Today we honor our veterans through Armistice Day in much of the Western world and Veterans Day here in the U.S. I had a great-grandfather in WW I, two grandfathers (one a Tuskegee Airman) in WW II, a father (two tours) and step-father in Vietnam, a sister served ten years in the Navy (her husband is a Navy retiree) and a step-brother who retired from the Marines after serving 25+ years. We in this family know sacrifice and we know honor. We are proud Americans! Happy Veterans Day! Photo: Veterans Plaza, Overton Park, Memphis, TN (shot November 9, 2011).
