I'm posting this message from another Pro 2A web site I visit.
Thank you to all who have served. -g

It has been recorded that less than 1 percent of the population of the
United States has served in the Armed Forces. Yet a large debt of gratitude
continues to be owed to that 1 percent that has or is presently serving.

On 12 November, the Sun will rise and shine on countless markers around the
world where Veterans performed deeds of heroism, courage and compassion for
their fellow man and woman. As it continues to bring on the light of day, it
will dry the dew that has settled on these markers much like the drying of
the tears of those who will visit them ... remembering who they were and
what they did. Comrades, Battle Buddies, Wingmen, Friends ... call them what
you want, they will come together from all places to pay their respect and
say thank you.

Survivors of our historic campaigns will proudly band together as Brothers
and Sisters sharing tears, hugs, war stories and catching up on what's been
going on.

On this Veteran's Day, take a minute to thank those who have raised their
hand for freedom. Let your "Thank You" float in the air that all Veterans
everywhere can hear them. Let your "Thank You" ease the pain and warm the
heart of the families and loved ones of those who bear the scars of war and
those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. May your "Thank You" continue to
spread protection and peace where ever they are. May we continue to be
thankful for our Veterans for where would we be without them.

Please feel free to share ....

Thank You

"Promise Given ... Promise Kept"

Heads-up! Ancestry.com is giving free military records checks through this weekend. The records are for WW2 and earlier. I found my great uncle's civil war pension request filing (from 1882, what took him so long?), another great uncle's draft registration from WW1 and WW2 and ditto for my grandfather. I didn't know guys in their 40s had to register for the draft in WW2. Both served in WW1. I also found my father's induction records from July 1942. All very cool!
