Eleventh hour, Eleventh Day, Eleventh Month

I thought about posting a video until it occurred to me that I had something quite wonderful to honor the Veterans…right here in my possession. I’m collecting Christmas cards to send to the Troops. From little kids to Grandmas…heartfelt messages…

For a history of Veteran’s Day you can go here.

If you’d like to honor a Vet you can go to Mark Dakota‘s Soldier Wall and add your Vet to this online tribute to all who have served.

“Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.” (Usually attributed to George Orwell but there seems to be some debate about that. I don’t care, I like the quote and I’m grateful every day for those men…and women.)

Love, Mom

  1. The letters are awesome! Thanks for posting them.

  2. Thanks Debbie. Some of the kids just blow me away with how well they understand what the military really does for us.
