    Many lives have come and gone;
    And injuries abound;
    For each the sound of freedom rings;
    An awesome mighty sound;
    Remember them on everyday;
    For those gave part or whole;
    For all those lives still breathe today;
    The heart of freedom’s soul.

    To all of those that have served or still serve - Thank you for your service and your sacrifice!

    In the US, we do it backwards. In much of the world, November 11 is "Remembrance Day" for those who fought and died in World War I. In the US, we do that on Memorial Day in May. Our November 11 is reserved for celebrating veterans - like my wife, who was an aerographer's mate in the Navy during the Vietnam era.

    My Dad would have been 98 this year. He was part of the Invasion of Normandy and went on through France into Germany. He drove a gasoline supply truck with the Quartermaster Division, had a .50 cal machine gun mounted on the roof, he had to stand on the truck seat and pop up through a hole in the roof to operate it.

    My band is headed by a wonderful guy who served in the Marine Corps. He plays guitar, bass, harp, banjo, piano and a few other things too silly to mention.

    For the last 10 years we have performed at a Veteran's Day Observance here in North-Central Texas, between Dallas and Fort Worth, at Veterans Park, Arlington Texas, including the one today! We do it come rain or shine, although sometimes we move it indoors, due to truly inclement weather.

    In that time, I have met some truly great people (all of whom are Vets, of course).

    For me, it's not about politics or political philosophy, far from it. It's about meeting people who are/were willing to risk their lives to care for me and my family. They are all modest, I am in their debt. They are all good folks, it's about respect.

    I'd tell you more, but then it would be about me and not them.
