Veterans Day in my opinion is not only a day which we remember those that served are Country, giving us the freedom that we have today, but those that serve us actively as I speak. If you don't know much about Veterans Day and how it came about, please read this from Wikipedia: Veterans Day
I have been very fortunate to have never lost anyone close to me during War time or even during 911. My thoughts and prayers go out to those loved ones lost during these emotional times. For many of you that know me, I am very passionate about our Country, who we are as a Nation, and for what we stand for. I have had the pleasure of serving in the US. Army for 2 years and I will never forget that part of my life. Here is a nice tribute relating to Veterans Day : Veterans Day Salute (please watch this 2 minute video)
On a side note, what brought me to remember Veterans Day, which is November 11th, is because of Google. I am always amazed on what they market on certain holidays. If you have read some of my blogs, I also have followed Google in the last year and their new images during specific holidays. If you want to read more : Google & Marketing.... It's Halloween And I want to thank Google for recognizing and remembering Veterans Day.
To all those that have served including those here on Active Rain...... I say, THANKS!!!!
