Thank You, Fellow Veterans

Today is Veterans Day, a time to thank our military veterans for serving our country and contributing to the U.S. national security.

I served in the U.S. Navy and at the same time my twin brother served in the U.S. Air Force. We are only two of 25 million veterans being honored today.

Because November 11th is shared as Remembrance Day in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the U.K. to remember their veterans who died in the service of their country, I think it is appropriate today to honor the memory of their fallen sons and daughters with the beautiful photo of the poppy below. The photo was taken by one of my favorite contacts on Flickr, southwest girl.
