God bless you, veterans!
Local kids celebrating Veterans Day
I went to a local school celebration of Veterans Day. Two older vets were sitting on the right in the row in front of me both with their caps on. On standing for the presentation of the colors, one vet removed his cap. The other vet kept his on, and the first vet did a light flip of the other's cap bill to alert the second vet to remove his cap. The hint didn't take, and the second vet kept his cap on the whole time even during the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the Star Spangled Banner. It was a funny little vignette.
God bless both those guys! And my vet dad who was sitting next to me watching his granddaughter who played in the band. God bless all you vets! Thank you!
