Looking back at our blog, it seems that I've never written a post solely focused on Veterans' Day (perhaps I've only posted on Facebook?). Anyway, below are mentions of Veterans' Day in previous years:
Veterans' Day 2014 (see bottom of post)
Veterans' Day 2012 (see bottom of post)
Chet is off work today; he is currently attending a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. School is still in session, so we dropped Sydney off as usual this morning, but Lorelei doesn't go to preschool on Wednesdays anyway, so she, Chet, Ford, and I will enjoy the day off.
One of my other favorite veterans, Papa John (my dad) is flying in for a visit today, so we're super excited. Papa Dave (also a veteran) and Didi are coming to visit mid-December.
It's crazy how few pictures I have of Chet and me in uniform (and I'm not sure we have a single picture of us together in uniform). Oh, well. Here are a couple, both of me, because it seems that any pictures I have of Chet in uniform are on the other (not currently plugged in) computer:
Thank you, Veterans -- those who served and who are currently serving!
