(I can't come up with a better way to say it than I did last year, so here it is again.)

Whether you call it Armistice Day, Remembrance Day, or Veterans Day doesn't matter; the day itself does.

Thank you to all who have served and are serving today: family, friends, and others.

May the results of your service be worthy of your sacrifices.

(2010 addition: Earlier this week I (and several co-workers) spent some time volunteering at the New England Center for Homeless Veterans, and I've also donated some money in honor of all the veterans I know.)

I liked the blue shark next to a comment you made on someone I friended so I looked you up. Thanks for volunteering at the shelter for homeless vets. If you are interested, I write about PTSD at http://patiencemason.blogspot.com. Lots of homeless vets have PTSD, dealt with by using drugs or alcohol. In 1972 a survey of "bums," as they were called then, showed that 75% of them were WWII combat vets. It isn't a new problem... Just heartbreaking.
