ckd: The 11th day of the 11th month
12:46 - The 11th day of the 11th month
(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.)
