Veteran's Day

Most of the Veteran's I know gave you at least a year in a Combat zone and 20 more years in uniform so we could have the right to celebrate one day on the 11th Hour of the 11th day.  Tomorrow I will go to the Great Overland Station here in Topeka at 2 PM to sing the National Anthem and America the beautiful.  I am not sure where I will be at 11 AM but you can sure bet that I will be thinking of all my friends that didn't come back. 

The tradition calls for all departed soldiers to be at Fiddler's Green waiting to share a cup of grog with those friends that will come later on.  I can bet there will be some tall tales told and a few lies shared.  Grog will do that to you.

1966 seems like yesterday

COL, USA, (Ret)
