In A Couple of Days It’ll Be Veteran’s Day Here

…and because I am TERRIBLE at remembering big things like that…

I present a post I wrote a few years ago, which includes a short story I wrote a few years before that.  I’d been part of a writer’s group and every week we got  prompts – a list of words we had to use in a short story.  There was a competition, and I won for this story.  It happens that WWII is  a passion of mine, and the military in general I hold in very high regard.

In honor of those who have gone before us.

24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week, 52 Weeks a Year

They silently stand guard over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

To remember, to protect, to honor.

On this Veteran’s Day I pay homage to those who fought before us, fight for us, and will fight to protect us in the future.

Hug a vet today! Only, not this one.  You’d probably get into serious trouble as these guys stop for no one and nothing.
