Veteran's Day 2019

          The moon gives you light,
        And the bugles and the drums
        give you music,
        And my heart, O my soldiers, my veterans,
        My heart gives you love.

                                        -Walt Whitman

  In 1919, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the first “Armistice Day” was observed in America to honor all the people that served in World War I—the war to end all wars.
  In 1938, the U.S. Congress changed the name and declared “Veterans Day” a national U.S. holiday.
  Here we honor and recall all the people that have served.
  My Grandfather, now gone longer than I knew him, served in WW I.
  My Dad, also departed, served in WW II.
  I served for 13 months as part of a draft call-up at U.S. government expense, prowling around the jungles of Southeast Asia, while in Vietnam.
  The two elders in our family never talked much about war, although my Dad would often recall his time flying around inside the U.S. Navy F4U Corsair.
  We have reported over the years on air cargo doing its part in supporting returning veterans.
  On this solemn day in the U.S. November 11, 2019, it’s important that we should never forget our veterans, their service and sacrifice, and always honor and care for our own.
